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 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.
That legendary feel and intonation is found on the 900 Eterna Sterling. It features the same great trumpet body as the Eterna Classic, but with the addition of a yellow brass mouthpipe tube and an outstanding one piece, sterling silver bell — not a plated silver bell like those found on many competitors' horns, but a genuine one piece, hand hammered, sterling silver sheet bell. The tonal colors created by this bell adds to the legend of the great Eterna trumpet.
