Holton Symphony Model 47

The Holton No. 47 trumpet sets entirely new and higher standards of intonation even without the aid of its quick acting tuning fist slide "trigger" and third slide tunign adjustment.

Coupled with this tuning, model No. 47 delivers a live, vibrant, staisfying tone that responds easily, quickly and yet with a controlled resistance that nakes even the longest sessions noticeable easier. Valve action is lighting fast to ingenius design and the use of special copper-nickel alloy valves whcih requie no plating and which have an oil retainign finish. Medium bore (0.459) , one piece bell

Pros: I bought mine in1960 and have been playing ever since. It has been a great horn to me, it has played everywhere.
Cons: none

I had it completely restored in 1995 as I played it at my daughtor wedding. I was 13 years of age when I bought it in 1960. I would love to know how many are still be usued.

Pros: Does what you want it to
Cons: May not be "the" sound

Early Holton trumpets are very well made. This cannot be disputed. Furthermore, they are easy to play. The 47 is a horn you can start using on gigs from day one. It will not fail you. All it needs is a musical idea and some air support. There are no weird notes or anything else to trip you up.
