I must admit, this is not a normal Getzen 3047 to me, it holds a special place in my heart this is actually my first professional trombone that my parents bought for me in 1996 at Zeps Music in Burbank.
Oh the things I promised my parents to get them to purchase this trombone for me its something I will never forget, and actually a memory I still recall when I have young students come into my shop to purchase a new trombone with their parents.
I got into college on this trombone and played some of my most memorable performances in my young career on it.
I sold this trombone in 2002 in order to fund my first Conn 88H after I fell in love with the Conn sound.
It's been well loved since then, serving its second owner well, who recently traded it in here at The Brass Ark to get something newer.
So again, for the second time in my life, I offer my original professional trombone for sale.
Features a 2 piece red brass bell, thayer valve, wide orchestral weight slide. The bell is raw brass, I stripped it myself when I started college at USC, as all the cool kids had raw brass bells.
Still in very good condition, some normal wear on the neckpipe and slide from contact.
If I didn't own so many, I'd probably keep it but it should be passed on to the next player who deserves it and maybe in 20 more years it'll come into the shop again! A lovely Shires trombone set with the following specs: T25 standard .525" bore slide (leadpipe for small and large shank included), 8.5" 7YLWT7 bell, 8" 7YLWT7 bell, gold brass tuning slide, Greenhoe valve (original Greenhoe fabricated by Shires), additional Eb valve slide, straight neckpipe with Greenhoe rest bar. Stunning ground up restoration of a vintage 1960s Alexander 103.
The instrument was taken apart to individual pieces, all dents removed, reinstalled with care, lightly buffed and relacquered.
A new original OEM gold brass leadpipe was specially made by Alexander to match the original specs for this vintage instrument.
Gorgeous hand engraved valve caps, its a beautiful instrument.
