In less than 24 hours I bought and sold this 1947 Standard E.K. Blessing trumpet.
(And a folding music stand which I did not sell. Yet.)
I played a cornet in elementary school
When I saw this at a thrift store yesterday, old memories came flooding back
and I couldn't resist buying it.
The valves need cleaning, for sure. I think it was a bargain.
I played the C scale, unsticking valves as I went
and surprising myself by how well I managed to create a solid tone.
The buyer is a young man whose high school music career I enjoyed following.
(Realistically I know I would not be playing it myself, but it was fun to dream!)
What instrument did/do YOU play?
