Wow!!! This is my favorite. Playing it for five days, including 1 rehehearsal and 2 concerts it excels in slotting, tone, sound and build quality, and effortless projection. The moment Miel and Trent handed me this trumpet, I knew I had to have it. Thankks Miel and Trent for making a trumpet designed especially for me, sorry Trent!!!!
Introducing the new Austin Custom Brass Double Shepherd's Crook Trumpet
Handmade completely by my friends at Adams in the Netherlands
After many years of collaborating with my friends at Adams we finally decided to take our relationship to another level with this new model. Be sure to check out all the clips below to hear this horn's incredible tonal spectrum!
This horn is an evolution from our previous instrument, the Hornet, and made this much more versatile both in sound shape and efficiency.
Check out this additional video (around the 25 min mark):
Here are some basic specs on the horn:
Copper plated finish
Poly bore setup to maximize efficiency and volume palette
(overall feel is similar to a medium large horn)
5.5 inch bell with extra large flare
Double Shepherd's crook design
all-new valveblock design
Lightweight (lighter than a stock Bach Trumpet) and extremely well balanced in the hand.
This model will only be available for sale at Austin Custom Brass and we have many on order. Email us at email@example.com for more details and delivery schedules.
