    Hi guys,

    Im thinking of selling my Melton Bass Trumpet. Its a German style instrument in C with the conversion slide to put it into Bb.

    4 Rotary valves, so same as a non compensating Euph in Bb/F or C/G.

    Its been used little, I played Rhinegold on it with ENO, and a couple of Valkyries and recorded Strauss Macbeth with the Halle.

    Other than that Its hardly been out of the box. Now i'm in the RAF its not getting much use and to be honest if i needed one I know where I can borrow one.

    Its like this:

    The Bb slide was an expensive optional extra and of course makes life easier if your used to playing a Bb instrument or Trombone.

    Pretty rare in the UK especially second hand. As you can see from Trevor Jones they are order only.

    Il provide a full set of parts for the Ring Cycle (copies of covent gardens) to the buyer.

    Il provide a mouthpiece, but the receiver is the same as a baritone. I used a Shilkie 48, a Bach 7c and a 5GS But best for me was my Doug Elliott 101 rim
    (like a 5G)with a C cup (very shallow).

    Im looking for £2500.

    I know this is not the ideal place to advertise such a specialist instrument but I thought there may be someone after a quality hooter like this.

    Comes in a Triple trumpet gig bag.

    Please send me a pm or give me a call or text on 07977042896.

    I forgot to mention. I could take a Conn 8 or 88 h in part exchange.

    The Melton meinl is a copy Of an alexander. Which are now over £6000.

    Sounds nice! Don't have the cash reserves to even consider thinking about making an outrageous offer for it at the moment though... Will have to stick with my cheapy cheapy knock-off for now. Mind you, bass trumpet gigs are not so plentiful for me either...

    Good luck selling it.

    Shes still available. Great condition.

    Not likely to be interest here I know but thought I'd try it.

    Not sure what moomin is going on about but I think he has the wrong thread. This is a sales post old boy.

    Anyway. HAGW.
