This bell has a
moderately-shaped taper throughout, but it's just a bit
larger than average, which makes it great for producing a
massive amount of sound and a lot of flexibility.
The final flare diameter is oversized
compared to common trumpets, which helps give the sound a
wider projection and a richer core to the sound.
This is the only bell we produce with
a flare of pure silver, and it has a very different sound
signature as a result.
Soloists looking for a wide range of
expression with a unique palate of colors will find lots to
love about this horn.
As Marcus Printup's gorgeous playing
conveys so well, the best way to describe this tone is that
it’s sweet & juicy; thick & rich
and also very shiny
at the same time.
