Benge Chicago Era S/n 2836 (Circa 1950) MINTY!


In stock


Minty 1950 vintage Chicago Benge in lacquer. All original components with a new valve job. 1st slide saddle was done after the original creation in 1950. New lacquer job must have been in the last 15+ years…unknown by who. The horn sat in a closet for many decades.  Rick Moravec (“The Old Maz” ) near Chicago, did a full valve job. He is a retired Schilke valve tech of 49 years. Originally sold to a student of Louis Davidson in ’51. All original including the 3rd slide stop nuts!

Plays like a dream…free blowing, smooth, centered sound with great projection in all registers, low to high!!!  Comes with custom Wolfpac case!
