Item specifics

Condition: Used : Split the cost with friends
An item that has been used previously. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Seller Notes: Condition(s): Trumpet – Very good considering its age, silver plating is 90%+ with some small chipping (noticeable only close-up), gold engraving is fair/good but thin to bare in a few spots. Plays well, compression is fair, but expected given music teacher use (definitely a 20’s ‘Satchmo’ sound), valves appear well (valve oil) maintained. Several minor dents as in photos (couple major dents professionally removed), except for 2nd valve slide which has major dent as in photos (left as is to avoid cracking). One of three tuning slide braces is missing as in photo (not unusual). All slides can be easily removed as recently cleaned (have not tried quick change slide). Mother of Pearl valve buttons show age cracks but are all intact. Makes a very nice presentation & plays well with an old sound. / Case - Partially restored, see photos for edge areas where missing cloth was replaced on sides, new heavy duty case handle added, hinges missing but lock still works to latch closed.

Buescher History (Buescher Loyalist)

The company was founded by Ferdinand August "Gus" Buescher (born Elk Township,Noble Co. Ohio 26 April 1861; died Elkhart Indiana 29 November 1937). He accompanied his family to Goshen Indiana and then to Elkhart in 1875. In 1876 he found employment with C.G. Conn's fledgling band instrument factory, and in 1888 he was promoted to foreman. In 1890 while still employed with Conn, he began producing band emblems at home and was setting up his own shop. In the fall of 1894 he opened the Buescher Manufacturing Company at 1119 N. Main Street which made band instruments and other metal products, in partnership with John L Collins, a clothing merchant, and Harry L Long, a salesman. In March 1901 he patented a cornet unusual in that the valves were of unequal lengths. In 1903 there was a disastrous bank crash which affected Buescher's factory and a number of other local businesses. In 1904 the business was reorganized and renamed the Buescher Band Instrument Company. After the reorganization, the company limited itself to producing band instruments. In 1916 Buescher sold a major share of his company to six businessmen including Andrew Hubble Beardsley. Buescher remained president until 1919 when Beardsley assumed that title. Buescher was vice-president and general manager of the company until January 21st 1929 when he resigned these positions, remaining on staff as a consultant engineer. 

 

Famous Players (Wikipedia)

Buescher Bb Truetone (Professional), There were a wide variety of Truetone models many custom made for the professional musician. Louis Armstrong recorded with a Buescher Truetone 10-22 R Trumpet in the late 1920s.

 

Back-story  (Original Owner)

Trumpet purportedly owned for most of its years (production date until recently) by a Don Sweeney, raised in S. Pittsburgh (old images with trumpet available upon request).  He went to West Virginia University and graduated with a degree in Music Ed. He went on to teach music in a town in South Carolina.  (Note-given his musical career, this instrument was likely well played & maintained over the decades he owned it).
