For sale in the shop is a beautiful pre-owned Adams A6 trumpet in gold lacquer. This horn was a custom build for an Adams artist and has the artist's initals "JH Custon A6" engraved on the lower tuning slide leg as can be seen in our photos. This horn has a .45 solid nickel bell and is in gold lacquer. Many of the features on this horn are custom including the round pinky ring, first slide thumb ring and slide stop (instead of the trigger that comes standard), an amado water key on the main tuning slide with no water key on the third slide. This horn also features custom finger buttons! New this corn would cost roughly $4000 with all of these custom options!
Here is some information about this model:
The A6, designed in collaboration with Adams Performing Artist Dontae Winslow, is a fantastic combination of old-world craftsmanship with modern improvements. Originally based on the classic “Connstellation” this horn possesses many of the same features of the older instrument, such as the smaller bore (.438/11mm), wide wrap, ergonomics, first-valve trigger assembly, and counterweights. While the original instrument is still quite wonderful we worked at improving the overall sound color palette, the intonation, the centering, and weight balance. The result of years of refining is the bond of old and new!
