This unique variation on our popular Model A trumpet features a special, slightly squarer bell bend with a side seam and standard brass bead. It produces a brilliant, broad tone of medium density with marvelous projection and easy response. The WH leadpipe provides and ideal combination of stability and flexibility; its free-blowing character compliments the centered bell taper. Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character to the sound, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack. This trumpet makes a great choice as an all-around instrument for performance in a wide variety of musical settings.
