Boosey & Hawkes 'Sessionaire' Bb Trumpet from C1962 Serial number 341XXX
in Silver plate! This trumpet has some fabulous compression and the valve action is very good considering it is now 56 years of age. It has plate wear on the 2nd slide and this has also seen a small dent repair in the past, overall it is in very good condition.. The only down points are serial number area worn probably from holding in that area, the slide stop nut is a replacement but works
Engraved on the bell is "Boosey & Hawkes B&H Made in England and SESSIONAIR. Also engraved on the bell near the 2nd valve casing is "LP" and the serial number.
This great looking English trumpet which may have been an attempt by Boosey & Hawkes to conquer the jazz market. It was endorsed by, amongst others, Ernie Watson lead trumpet with the BBC Northern Dance Orchestra or (NDO)
Valves are light and fast with good compression.
Bell: 12.5 cm
