These are the first two pocket trumpets made by Benge in This date conflicts with the serial number list available on the Internet, but we are confident that it is accurate. They were both known to take these trumpets with them on vacations in order to get a little practice in. A few years later, Boyde became very close friends with Irv and spent many happy hours talking about trumpets and experiences that they had in the business. Bob instead used the pocket trumpet, which he convinced Zubin was a cornet and Bob got away with it.
Bob and Irv also used those instruments for the orchestra’s recording of Tchaikovsky’s overture. During those days, Bob and Irv always played the cornet parts, and Mario and I did the trumpet ones, and, in fact, again if memory serves, when conductors insisted on cornets, they always used the “pockets,” and I don’t recall ever seeing them playing cornets when cornets were called for-and no conductor, even those conductors who generally knew what they were doing, were ever the wiser!
Keith still owns his along with one of the others that was made before Benge closed the Burbank shop. I learned an even more obscure fact in a conversation with Bob Reeves. Lou didn’t want to risk ruining a good Benge bell and had a spare Olds bell hanging above his bench. He bent this bell and fitted it to a Benge valve section, making his first pocket trumpet, this one predating the two featured here by about two years. If anybody knows the whereabouts of this trumpet, I would love to hear from you.
In both cases the finish is original: Irv’s is gold plated, Bob’s is lacquered and has suffered a little more wear and damage.
