Originally introduced in the early 1960s, the Eterna 900 rapidly became the most popular of Getzens professional trumpets. During 40 years of production, subtle design changes altered the intruments 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 Eterna Classic will serve working musicians and serious amateur players in a variety of music venues.
Made to the highest standards the 900 series have a fantastic valve action and represent the classic American trumpet sound so sought after.
Silver plate finish, .460 bore, nickel silver mouthpipe, nickel silver slides, 4 3/4 yellow brass bell, first valve saddle, adjustable third slide ring. Supplied with hardshell wood case with interior music compartment
Nearly great but iffy tuning with modern mouthpieces (say fine with a Bach or Warburton star backbore) and its a long trumpet so I had to play it with the slide fully in to get it into pitch. Very easy centering, the nickel silver leadpipe does try to make up for the cheaper bell quite well but if you've played the original "Doc Severinsen" getzen Eterna you will notice how dull this bell is. After getting dribbled on by the amados I sold mine to an overjoyed new lady owner. On the flipside, the tight wrap made my 10 year old son very comfortable (on a bigger mouthpiece than normal) and he could produce very clean notes and scales on it.Getzen did make a sterling bell version of this horn that was great.
