    Original lyre, case, Martin 7 & 8 mouthpieces, warranty card!


    One of the most desired trumpets in the world. Widle adopted in jazz music because of its warm, rich sound and flexible intonation. It has a unique sound that has been described as "dark and smokey". Miles Davis played custom-made Committees throughout his career. Other notable players include Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry, Chet Baker, Lee Morgan, Maynard Ferguson, Art Farmer, Wallace Roney, and Chris Botti. Instruments with serial numbers between 140,000 and 210,000 are arguably the most valued horns for their playing but good horns were produced later and earlier than those dates. Large bore horns are even more hard to find. The Martin Committee trumpet was originally designed in the late 1930s for the Martin Band Instrument Company by a "committee" of diverse players and teachers. When Martin was purchased by Leblanc, the original Committee design was discontinued and a new instrument carried the name. These horns were produced until 2007, when the Martin brand was dropped by Selmer who had purchased Leblanc in 2004.
