Talk about a rare horn! This is the second Getzen Mike Vax trumpet ever made. Silver plated throughout, this ML bore, highly comfortable horn makes it feel like you're driving a Porsche for your mouth! The 3001MV is the result of Mike Vax’s 40 plus years of trumpet playing experience. Together, he and the Getzen ProShop worked to develop a first-class lead trumpet based on the existing 3001 design. The 3001MV features a standard 3001 body with the addition of a lower tuning slide venturi tube and lightweight bottom caps.
