Need Help Identifying your Trumpet?

If you landed on the Trumpet Serial Number it probably means you are looking for information, age, and value of your trumpet or horn. Join the club. As you can see there are quiet a few comments and unanswered questions. Before we can truly make this page a valuable source of trumpet history and information, we will need really strong participation.

The best way I know of getting information on your horn, serial number, age, value, etc., is to post some information here in the comments section. I would be glad to post links as they are pointed out to me, but what I would really like to see is for this page to become a forum for questions and answers on trumpets, cornets, flugelhorns, and other varieties of horns. I cannot promise immediate results, but it certainly doesn't hurt to share your horn, situation, and serial number with others who visit this page.
