The Martin Committee was the premier trumpet of the Martin Band Instrument Company of Elkhart IN. The firm produced band instruments, including trumpets, cornets, fluegelhorns, trombones, and saxophones beginning in 1908 and through the sixties. The Martin Committee trumpets and saxophones were favorites of jazz musicians. The horn became widely adopted in jazz music because of its warm, rich sound and flexible intonation. It has a unique sound that has been described as "dark and smokey". Miles Davis played custom-made Committees throughout his career. Other notable players include Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry, Chet Baker, Lee Morgan, Maynard Ferguson, Art Farmer, Wallace Roney, and Chris Botti.Please see our other listings for more musical instruments.
