Excellent Vintage H B Jay Edition By Columbia Trumpet Silver Hand Engraved For Sale
This is a 1914 or so Harry B Jay Columbia trumpet in excellent physical and playing. Beautifully hand engraved, silverplated. No dents or damage. Mother of Pearl buttons.The Jays are known
well mostly because Louis Armstrong played one when he was with Kid
Oliverâ's band. An old
Harry B Jay catalog describes it as having the first essential of a
true trumpet, right proportion.The Harry B Jay
Company was located at 542 W. Jackson Blvd. in Chicago. This address is
shown on the sash in the upper part of the case.
The Jays have several features of note. The Jays introduced a telescopic tuning slide, somewhat like
those on the Vindobona Bach trumpets which came along much later. All
of the Jays came with a simple quick-change-to-A mechanism, and they
came with slides for both low and high pitch, including a separate
tuning slide when this one was made.
This trumpet serial number is 9329 . It does not play like an old low quality trumpet, this has playing features that
make it desirable today and the sound excellent. I recently cleaned the entire trumpet in soap and warm water and the valves with a toothbrush.
The actual bore size on this trumpet is approximately 0.469
