Used Pocket or Regular Sized Cornets & Trumpets for Sale
Modern Pockets: In the course of doing my informal research on currently available pocket trumpets, I often acquire perfectly good instruments that I donâ€t need to keep long-term. Vintage Pockets: Occasionally I will find a better example of a vintage instrument, and opt to sell the first horn. Please read the descriptions closely, and note that the price is the best indication of either the playability and quality (if a fairly new horn), or collectibility (if vintage). Please do not email me and ask how one plays compared to another, as itâ€s too subjective. Again, the price will be your best guide.
Please, with vintage and antique instruments, understand these are not the same as modern horns. If you arenâ€t familiar with the challenges presented with vintage, then it may be best for you to stick to new ones.
TERMS: All sales are final. I will not accept any returns. Payment via Paypal only, and shiping will be in addition, via UPS. Foreign buyers MUST contact me first to make sure I can easily ship to that country, and accept payment via Paypal. I will not falsify any customs documents, so please do not ask.
TO PURCHASE: Email me first to confirm availability and obtain shipping estimate so that payment can me made.
