A super beautiful looking horn that plays even better than it looks!
This horn is an A-stock horn. We bought it from Adams which used it for a few trade shows. Because of them using it at a few shows it has some slight surface imperfections. I have tried to take a picture of one of the imperfections but it's quite challenging even with my good photo gear. The horn almost can pass for new but because of the prior testing at shows we are able to sell it at a slightly discounted price.
Normally this horn is close to $4000 when imported and takes 16-20 weeks for building.
The A4 is one of our most popular models in the trumpet line. This horn is a result of extensive collaborative work with Adams Performing Artist Amik Guerra. This is one of our heavier models. Featuring a 5.5-inch one-piece bell and also a heavy chassis this horn is an ideal choice for the soloist looking for an extremely rich, warm, fluid, and thick sounding horn. One of the things we stress about this instrument is the fact it will work in many different musical environments due to wonderful coloring and richness on this horn. While most people order this horn in the larger .470 (12mm) bore we do make a .460 (11.7mm) bore instrument on request for clients. Also available in this model is a shepherd´s crook model which allows for more personal expression in the dynamic and articulation palette.
Bell: Red Brass - 140 mm
Bore: ML 11.7 mm
Finish: high gloss polished lacquer
Gauge: 0.45 mm (medium light thickness from Adams)
