Pre-Owned Adams A1 Trumpet in satin matte gold lacquer

Excellent condition

.55 thickness  Yellow Brass Bell

Also included with this horn is a third slide,  a conical bore pure Sterling silver crooked slide,  which is an additional $250 option from Adams!


This horn is being sold for a friend on consignment who's paring his collection due to some expenses.




This trumpet has a ML bore of .460 (11.7mm) and is all-around trumpet with a particular nod towards the crossover player who demands an extremely versatile instrument. Developed in collaboration with US-based trumpeter Trent Austin the horn features a warm sound when played at a softer dynamic with good overall sound dispersion and colors. Once you push the instrument volume-wise the horn becomes more refined and energized.



Adams a1 selected

Delivered with two tuning slides

The A1 is available with a conical and a cylindrical tuning slide. Both sound distinguished. The conical sounds more compact and bright. It is also easier to play than the cylindrical slide. The cylindrical makes the sound of the horn broader. You have to work harder, but you get a more robust sound and free blowing horn in return.
