For sale is a rare Selmer 75 Radial C trumpet in silver plate. This trumpet is from 1970 (s/n 49xxx) and is still in very decent shape! These trumpets were called Radial for its ergonomic reasons, which the first and third valves precisely formed an angle of 2° with the vertical middle valve - the same angle that is followed by the fingers in the movement of closing. 75 means the bore size is 11.75mm (L bore). The previous owner stated that this trumpet was bought from Dillon music about 15-20 years ago, and it was listed as one of Frank Kaderabek's (Principal Trumpet of Philadelphia Orchestra) personal C trumpets. The pitch finder was installed by Jim Becker at Osmun Music. The first valve trigger was removed but can be reinstalled easily by any competent technician. There are dings and dents as well as silver plating loss, but for a horn that is over 50 years old it still has plenty of life left, and it is anxious to be played again!
