This new Bb trumpet was developed in collaboration with Christian Martinez (a renowned French professional trumpet player), with the inspiration to combine a characteristic sound, versatility, playability and user-friendliness.
This trumpet has a full-bodied tone throughout its entire range rich in harmonics.
Its richness of sound, along with exceptional tuning accuracy, make it an obvious choice for all styles of music, from jazz to classical.
New lightweight gold brass bell with a French-bead at rim, hand-crafted and hand-hammered for better projection. Specially designed leadpipe for more ease and precision.
Completely redeveloped bore, from the leadpipe to the valve block, for stability of airfow and to enhance tuning precision.
New innovative system of 3rd slide stop.
Two full sets of buttons, top and bottom caps, enabling any musician to personalized his trumpet.
Top caps with a special “fast thread” to unscrew the valve in two and a half turns.
Standard waterkeys for more efficiency.
