Very rare Selmer Paris 900 TT C trumpet for sale



  • This is the best C trumpet you will find for less than $2,000. It's a shame Selmer Paris no longer makes brass instruments. Their trumpets were amazing and this C trumpet came at the height of their R&D. The concept TT line of trumpets had a double lead pipe and light bracing that gave the instrument a laser focus and wonderful full sound.

    From the old Selmer Paris archives: " The 900 TT C trumpet is an instrument designed for orchestral work and is suitable for the soloist as well as for the whole section. It is manufactured from a specific concept standardized for the first time on this model: The 'Twin tube' technology. It combines a generous sound print, flexibility, precision and perfectly controllable blowing with very well balanced tuning and dynamics in all registers. "

    I don't play anymore and it's time to let this go. It's probably going to be one of the only TT C trumpets on the market currently. Not many are around and this one is in excellent shape.

    There are some spots where the lacquer has worn (see pics). That being said I would put the lacquer/finish at 95%. I did have a small dent in the bell rolled out (not hammered out), as well as a dent in the bell crook. Both repairs were done by experts and do not effect the instruments play-ability. Valves and slides work great and were just professionally serviced.

    I will ship with its original paper work, 'instrument passport', and Selmer Paris cleaning cloth. This instrument does not come with a case but will be extremely well packed. Free Shipping to lower 48.

    Price: $1950 (or make a reasonable offer)

    @Curlydoc Or you could use the sethoflagos method: He is allowed to buy any trumpet he wants, as long as he spends the equal amount of money on his wife (usually jewellery). ssmith1226 is working the same method with equal success.

    Your a physician. Give her Ambien for the evening, bring the horn in, and she will have no memory of it in the morning.
