Taylor Chicago 46 X-Lite

This trumpet is special and I hesitate to list it.  I adopted it as my personal go-to instrument  and I just love the way it plays.  It is open and dark and so very responsive.  The raw brass with silver patina  actually draw a lot of crowd attention--everyone wants to know the story behind this horn!  Its life has not been long enough to have historical interest, but I must admit that it is one of those instruments that seems to have a soul of its own.  Taylor has since  made me a custom instrument and I just can't let this trumpet sit on a shelf in silence.   Another perk is that with the glorious patina it has now, it can only grow more beautiful with your touch.
