Demand for Vintage and Rare Trumpets

The demand for rare trumpets is a niche market that gives trumpet players a whole new purpose for searching eBay. Many famous trumpet players of today actually prefer the way older trumpets were made and the way they sound. I think perhaps the most important factors in making these old instruments so valuable is that they were played by famous trumpet players of previous generations. For example, back in the 50's and 60's, Maynard Ferguson played the Martin Committee and Conn Connstellation trumpets. Miles Davis also played a Martin Committee, yet could he and Maynard possibly have sounded more different and unique in their sounds and approach? Wanna know who plays a Martin Committee today? Chris Botti, and probably with a sound more like Miles than Maynard. Here are just a few examples of famous trumpets of the past and what brand trumpets they played:

Trumpets played by Legends

This list, of course, is only a handful of rare trumpets played by some of the very biggest trumpet stars from the past. By searching the eBay auctions you are likely to gain some very interesting information and history on many other trumpet greats and the horns they played. I am no historian, myself, about trumpet history. If you would like to learn more about your own horn, the best thing to do is leave comments below about your brand, model, serial number, year, and any other information you have. I will be glad to post all comments related to trumpets.

    • Hi Dave,
      I have a Keilwert ‘The New King’ Keilwert s.n.1282 lacquered Bb trumpet and am curious about it’s rarity and playability.

  1. Hi all, I have a couple of rare and collectable Trumpets that at the time of manufacture was the most expensive in the world and highly sought after brands that the professionals of the time had or wanted.
    A full medals Antoine Courtois Paris Trumpet with the quick change valve.
    A W Brown and sons kennington road Trumpet that is custom made by hand and a total one of a kind Trumpet,
    It has a rotary valve on the tuning slide that faces back to the valve block, and a tuning slide on the bell bend that is very rare, it has a direct air system that is helped by a straight lead pipe entry into the valve block and a straight exit out with the bell pipe, giving it a unique rap that is a great idea and it has so much more. I’m sure those of you who are familiar with this highly prized maker that are so small and limited in the amount they made for professional players to order, that leaves very few available and very rare. So rare that most collecters are not even aware of them, look them up for yourself and the eBay listing ends in a day or so.
    True rare collectable Trumpets that the best collections should have, thanks for your time
