This trumpet is in PRISTINE condition. It was commissioned by a collector and has hardly been touched. Lotus describes it as follows: "Consisting of 3 pistons and 1 rotor, it’s a superior solution for the 4-valve trumpet as designed by Adam Rapa. Controlling the rotary valve trigger with your left thumb is incredibly easy and feels like 2nd nature in no time. The 4th valve can either be tuned to drop the pitch of the horn by 5 half steps/semitones or by a quarter tone." This particular instrument has the added benefit of also having been beautifully lacquered.
