Hello trumpet world! I have a fantastic Shires 401 C trumpet for sale in like new condition. This has been one of my main C trumpets for the past couple of years, and it is fantastic. From Mahler to Mozart and everything in between, it has been incredible easy to play. I can\'t say enough about the amazing craftsmanship of the builders over at Shires! The description of this instrument on their web site is as follows: The S.E. Shires Model 401 trumpet is the latest version of our original signature C trumpet. It features a uniquely balanced heavyweight “4”bell taper, which combines a big, powerful sound with easy response. The bell of the 401 updates the design of traditional C trumpet bells in that it is bent slightly shorter, resulting in a Z-brace placement closer to the bell bend. For some players, this can solidify the feel and quicken response. Matched with the open 401 leadpipe and the centered and projecting WF tuning slide, it produces an ideal balance of breadth, clarity, depth, and projection. Yellow-brass balusters add warmth to the sound while nickel-silver valve caps add brilliance and character, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack. I\'m only letting this horn go because I\'m interested in a different model. If you happen to be in the Cincinnati area, I\'m happy to let you try the instrument. I\'ll ship to CONUS for $2,900. Please let me know if you have any questions. Sincerely, Dave
