Shires Model BLW


2500.00 USD

This shires model BLW is in amazing shape and has recently been cleaned. There are minor signs of plating wear on the leadpipe shown in the pictures, but the inside of the pipe is like new. I'm looking to sell within the US for $2,500 + Shipping. For further specifics, I've pasted Shires description from their website below: The S.E. Shires Model BLW trumpet features a lightweight version of the broad “B” bell that allows for even faster response and an open high register. Brilliant and nimble, it navigates technical passages with flexibility and ease. It sounds warm, round, and intimate at when played softly, but sizzles at high volumes—and projects easily to the back of any performance space. The openness of the standard W leadpipe provides a free, stable-slotting, but flexible blow; its relatively fast taper adds brilliance to the characteristic warmth of the B bell taper. Yellow-brass balusters and lightweight yellow brass valve caps add depth and immediacy to the sound. The combination of playability and warmth unique to the BLW make it one of the few lightweight trumpets to appeal to lead and classical players alike. - Bore: .459 inch- BLW Bell: 4 13⁄16 inch, one piece, hand-hammered "B" (broad) taper in lightweight yellow brass with traditionally brazed seam and standard bead- W Leadpipe: .347-inch venturi, lightweight yellow brass; open and free blowing with well-defined slots and easy, immediate response- X Tuning Slide: dual-radius bend, standard water key; free blowing and flexible, with great response - Piston Material: hand-lapped Monel - Valve Cluster: two-piece casings, lightweight, with yellow-brass balusters - Lower Valve Caps: lightweight yellow brass - Bell Engraving: S.E.
