Scatman Bb Trumpet
One of the most iconic photos in jazz is Dizzy Gillespie blowing his unusually shaped trumpet.
No one before had played a trumpet like this. Was it the result of pure genius on the part of Gillespie, or was it the result of an onstage accident, as legend has it?
Do you know the answer?
Martin produced the first trumpet in this style for Dizzy, now O’Malley Musical Instruments has reproduced the design in a gorgeous silver plated edition!
