Things We Find In Cases: A Copy of the Getzen Gazette from 1967!

Welcome to another exciting episode of  “Things I find in cases”! Today’s exciting find comes to you from the original case of a Getzen Severinson model trumpet that just came in. Copies of the Getzen Gazette always used to come with new horns - not sure if they still do or not, but I remember getting a copy with a Getzen Capri flugel I purchased in 1984! My copy featured the Chicago horns with their Getzen brass. Here’s a few of the features from this 1967 copy we found, including Doc taking over the Tonight Show Band, and a 15...

I’ve been super busy trying to get things done after our recent snowstorms, but things are getting back to normal now!

What’s on My Bench? Early 70s Bach Model 37 Trumpet

Here you see a very nice Bach 37 from around 1970 or 1971. It was quite dirty and everything was stuck except the pistons, but it has cleaned up quite nicely! Aside from some missing lacquer and a few scars from dent removal, there’s nothing wrong with it at all.

What’s on My Bench? 1947 Olds Recording Trumpet

What a beautiful day to share a beautiful Olds Recording with you all! This one is really in wonderful shape, and is nice and straight with just a couple of tiny dents to remove.   Oddly enough, it was missing a valve guide, but I have remedied that situation! Its biggest problem aside from the missing guide was just dirt, and now it’s nice and clean and ready to go. If you’ve been looking for one of these, this just might be the one for you! Look for it in our listings soon. Wishing you amazing gigs! #AmandasBench
