A very rare and hard to find Calicchio 3/9 Copper Solo ML S/n 5886. This horn is a Player and a great sounding trumpet as well. You would expect this horn to be overly dark sounding. Not the case here, It has a beautiful sparkle with a full core. I can’t wait to get a Video recording of this beauty! I’m haveing the 2nd slide nub replaced and then clean and polish. It is a thing of beauty!
From the Calicchio site 3/9 Copper Solo
The Copper Solo elevates copper trumpets to a new standard of excellence. More rounded bends in the bell and the unbraced reverse tuning slide enhance the harmonics resulting in a more conical sound. All of the slide sections feature positive air flow to ensure a smooth, open blowing horn. Thick copper combined with minimal bracing provides a rich sound that lets the instrument sing for you, while maintaining the classic Calicchio sparkle. Although it was designed with the 3 bell and the 9 pipe, other combinations are available upon request. A true original!
