I got an old Kurt Scherzer trumpet in D

Hello everybody,

I just got an old Kurt Scherzer trumpet in D.
It says 'Augsburg' on the bell and 'Modell Prof. A. Pichler'. From the seller I understand that the maker is not related to the well known Johann Scherzer and that Adolf Scherbaum used to play the Kurt Scherzer piccolo trumpet in Bb, also named Prof. A. Pichler model and that Roger Delmotte played this trumpet model in D. Mine is S/N 9043, stamped on the receiver.

I wonder when this trumpet was made.

Best Regards,

Michael

Hello Michael
There is a wb page about this kind of trumpets
Here is the linkĀ  https://marge.home.xs4all.nl/tarv.htm#.WcPEEMhJaUl

Piechler trumpets are originaly made by Kurt Scherzer and later by Sandner who took over the workshop of Scherzer

From what I see, this web page shows TARV trumpets. The Pichler D trumpet I got is not tarv but has regular pistons, bottom sprung.

I didn't know that he also made piston valve Piechler trumpets. Sorry
The tarv Piechlers are from the 1950'S
