Some horns catch the eye of both the collector and the player equally as much. This Martin Committee is one of those horns. Beautiful honey color lacquer. Easy blowing with a sweet, yet complex sound. It sounds like history. Martin is the sound of jazz history. This trumpet dates back to 1955 and is a #2 bore. If you are looking for a beautiful horn and to be part of the lineage that changed 20th century music, this might be what you're looking for. Unless you're not trying to change history, then just keep scrolling.
From the Martin Bandwagon Catalogue:
"This is the trumpet that takes you up, UP into the range you've always thought beyond your reach. Sparkling clear highs become a part of your normal range - yes, even sustained passages! Your tone in the upper register is just as full and powerful as in the middle and lower registers.
As for flexibility, here again the Martin is outstanding. This Committee Model trumpet was designed by a group of America's finest players, working with the famous craftsmen of Martin to produce a trumpet of truly outstanding performance. No wonder more top stylists depend on a Martinthan on any other trumpet! You owe it to yourself to try this remarkable trumpet at your earliest opportunity"
