This is a super horn we are selling on consignment for a good friend of the shop... he purchased it new and only used it on a few performances. Besides some surface tarnish (we'll fully polish it before shipping) it is in excellent condition.
The Schilke S42L-JF Faddis was built to the specifications of legendary jazz artist Jon Faddis. The S42L-JF Faddis has a tuning bell feature that allows the tuning slide to be left all the way in or moved only a little to keep the bore relatively free of gaps that may cause a disturbance in the nodal pattern of the sound wave. The S42L Faddis also features a custom rounded tuning slide without a waterkey, plus an adjustable tuning bell soundpost. The Schilke S42L-JF Faddis Custom Series Bb Trumpet with Tuning Bell is available in silver (S42L-JF) finish.
