If you're looking at this listing, chances are you recognize the Eterna Severinsen as one of the top trumpets ever made, and a true favorite of professional musicians. The Eterna model came into being in the early 1960s as a hybrid of several of Getzen's other professional trumpets. Around1964 "Doc" Severinsen joined the company and was much more than an endorsee, acting as a hands-on advisor for the manufacturing of the Eterna line. Doc made lots of tweaks and suggestions that were crucial to establishing the immediate success of this model. N 1970 Ray Amado, who at that time was making the legendary JETTONE mouthpiece lines, decided to also join forces with Getzen.Ray brought his patented Amado water keys to the Severinsen model, thus eliminating the standard lever type spit valves. Ray also consulted on other production aspects, including the lead pipe, bore and bracing structure. When all of this was mixed into the ongoing process, this horn became the best ever produced! This trumpet shows signs of wear (please see photos of the actual instrument). There is some sticking on two of the valves, and one very small "ding".
It comes with the rare original 1970's hard case, two mouthpieces (5C and 7C), a cleaning brush and a pull-through. Also included is the original care pamphlet! No plating loss observed; overall condition is good with minor scratches from normal use.
