Originally introduced in the early 1960s, the Eterna 900 rapidly became the most popular of Getzen's professional trumpets. During 40 years of production, subtle design changes altered the instruments personality. Numerous requests from fans of the early 900 convinced the Getzen Company to return to the original specifications and reintroduce the trumpet as the 900 Eterna Classic.

This classic design is exceptionally free blowing with excellent intonation. The addition of the solid silver sterling bell adds an amazing resonance and vibrancy to the core sound. It's a difficult one to explain in terms of how it alters the tone but its like switching into stereo after being stuck in mono! Essentially the sound becomes broader, more complex and full of colour, this potentially allows you to craft the sound more to the nuances of the music and the performance.

This particular example is in really great condition. The lacquer is in very good order throughout and the valves offer the usual superlative action that Getzen provide and which arguably makes them the smoothest and most positive valves in production. The only real light signs of use is a small area of minor scratching (as shown in the close up image) which has probably been caused by the player wearing a ring. This is hidden away somewhat and is only minor in the grand scheme of things.

In summary, this would be a wonderful upgrade Trumpet for the advancing player doing a variety of musical work. Be it grades, concert bands, jazz bands or even solo work. It would also be a great addition to any advanced adults collection as it offers a truly unique sound compared to most brass Trumpets currently on the market.
