Horn looks to be in pretty good shape. Of course the condition and needs of the valves can't be determined by a picture.  If the price stays low, it might be a reasonable project.  We can talk you through the steps.

I've stumbled across this site before, but have become more obsessed with it since purchasing a helicon. I'm a low brass guy. I have a Besson 700 tuba, Besson 210 Baritone and an old King Trombone besides the Champion Silver Piston Helicon.

It's nice to drop in.

Hi!

I started playing the trumpet as a kid. Eventually I switched over to baritone horn as the school band needed one, and from there on the horns got bigger and bigger and i ended up with that stalwart pillar of musical society. The tuba.

It's been many years since I played a tuba but I still have some bits of brass and came her so seek info about them.
Cheers!

Sounds like my story, also.
I always tell people that I "sank" to the level of my instrument...

Hi!

I'm Megan, I play with the circus. I'm usually on the trombone forum under the same username.

Nice to meet you!

Not as many people can say that they play with the circus as there used to be!  Welcome.

A sad truth. And thank you! Nice to see another PA peep in the forum! (I'm from Bloomsburg)

jhereg, you ever hear of Leo Labranche?  He started out playing cornet in a circus. He's come a long way  since. I bought an old cornet from him a year or two ago.  http://www.discogs.com/artist/777313-Leo-LaBranche

Thanks for the link. I'll look him up Smiley

I can't remember which but he told me either Barnum and Bailey or Ringling. His circus band time would have been back in the 60's or early 70's I'd guess. I'm not in touch with him anymore.  I don't know if I ever had his email address.. maybe.only back and forth through the ebay "seller sent a message" thing. 

He sent me a CD of more than 20 numbers he had recorded with him playing the trumpet lead. They were all professionally done with accompaniment.  They hadn't been released yet as I understood it. Some were his new compositions and some were his versions of jazz standards like Tangerine and other tunes of about that era.
He apologized for some off notes as he says what he sent weren't the final cuts.  I can't remember noticing any clunkers though.

Yeah, the circus was very different back then! That was before they used an in-house band...they had locals instead.

Ringling Bros. IS Barnum and Bailey, they are the same circus. The name is currently owned by Feld Entertainment, which also does Monster Jam, Disney on Ice, and more.

Hi, I'm Adam, otherwise known as AdMan, how's everybody doin here? I joined because I've got an antique 1937 H.N. White King Liberty trumpet that I want to eventually sell. Just wanna do it the right way. Not very much reference to them here yet but hopefully some knowledge pops up. I've got pics if anybody's interested. I'll start a thread elsewhere for them though.

It sort of depends on what information you may be looking for. 

There is official information on the instrument at: 

http://www.hnwhite.com/Trumpet%20Page.htm

But beyond that, it may be helpful to ask specific questions.
