Please be aware that our normal warranty/guarantee cover does not apply to this instrument as it has been pre-owned by a client and sold by us on their behalf.

Trumpets in the key of Eb/D are mainly used when a piece requires a lighter sound than the Bb Trumpet.
Musicians also use Trumpets in Eb/D when a piece is particularly high, due to the instrument being slightly smaller. Many players use the Eb Trumpet to play such repertoire as the Haydn Trumpet concerto. The D trumpet is useful for playing 2nd and 3rd parts in Baroque repertoire.

Wear & Tear Observations: This Trumpet has evidence of Red Rot in many places. These include both the Eb and D slides, the bell, the valve casing, and the leadpipe. There is also a lacquer bleed on the joint of the stay between the bell and leadpipe. The bell has a couple of larger scratches as well as a few dinks. Red Rot aside, the lacquer is in a good condition with only a small amount of wear on the Eb slide. It was serviced by our brass technician at the beginning of March. All slides, valves and caps move freely and smoothly.
This Benge D/Eb Trumpet is supplied in a hard, faux leather Yamaha Double Trumpet case with fully functioning clasps. There are a few small tears to the leather on the outside of the case as well as a few marks.
The interior of the case is black. One handle is missing some of the leather so isn’t as comfortable to hold. This doesn’t affect the use.
The case can either hold two trumpets or a trumpet and some accessories. There is also a full bottle of blue juice valve oil and a valve case cleaning brush.
The Mouthpiece supplied is unmarked. It is silver-plated but has had some use. The silver-plate has worn off in a few places and there are a couple of marks on the overall surface too.
