Recently purchased Austin Custom Brass pocket trumpet. Honestly my expectations where fairly low given the form factor and the price. I was quite surprised with the quality and sound I ended up with. It’s no Martin Committee or anything, but it competes fairly well with my 1980’s back strad 43. At least in terms of sound projection and tone within a more modest range. Doesn’t slot nearly as well or screech quite as nice above the staff, but hell, it was less than $300 and that was with a very nice case. Feels good in the hand, and definitely seems quality. Highly recommended.
Austin Custom Brass Pocket Trumpet
A fun little horn for the money. It's a small bell Don-Cherry Style horn in a polished lacquer Finish. Comes with Hard case.
Bell is made from Yellow Brass
3rd slide adjustable ring
Bell: 3.667 inch (93 mm) bell (piccolo trumpet practice mutes would fit in this horn!)
Bore size: ML .459
The ML bore nicely compensates nicely for the tighter wrap of the trumpet.
Included in this horn are a nice ACB-Logo Polyfoam gig case, 7C, backpack straps, and ACB oil.
This is most definitely not a toy, it's a nice playing horn! Perfect for travel as well.
Plug a practice mute in and play to your heart's content!
All ACB pockets will be cleaned and optimized prior to shipment.
