This is a 1926 Bach "Apollo" trumpet in silver plate. These horns do not come up to often, so we decided to do a valve job on it to bring this horn back to what it was like new. It is truly special and unique. It is a small bore instrument, but does not feel tight or stuffy at all. We only did minor dents, a flush, and a valve alignment on it. Truly a unique horn!.
