I sell this nice-looking trumpet made in famous traditional Czech factory Amati Kraslice. The factory has a long history, since 1840. Also thanks to significant German influence nowadays continues to producing quality musical instruments. They are still manufacturing in Czech Republic, in cities Graslitz (Kraslice) and Königgratz (Hradec Kralove). 

Mechanical condition
Everything works as it should. All three rotary valves are OK. They have smooth action and easily returns back to position. Valves caps can be unscrewed and there is nothing stuck. All three slides and also main tuning slide are free and can be easily pulled out. The instrument has been maintained and is in good immediately usable condition.

Cosmetic condition
This big trumpet is in original shiny raw brass finish. It looks durable. The surface is free of dents, or big scratches. Of course, it is not like a new, but I often do not see an instrument in such nice condition. You can see insignificant rusty dots on last two photos.

The sound and tuning
Do you play Alto Horn in your local brass band, or are you trumpet player and just need a change? In both cases is this big "Alto" Trumpet in Eb (lower than Bb trumpet) a good choice for you. This big 20.9 in / 53 cm long trumpet in raw brass finish is in a good playable condition. This trumpet plays lightly, has a lovely soft tone in middle ranges and a classical trumpet-like sound at heights. It has got a wider bore size (around  0.451 in / 11,45 mm) than Bb Trumpet and needs more air. For this reason the trumpet rewards you with a beautiful full and smoother tone. The diameter of bell is 4,92 in/12,5 cm.  The similar model of a new Alto Trumpet by Josef Lidl costs around 485 GBP.
