This unique variation on the popular Shires Model A trumpet features a special, slightly squarer bell bend with a side seam and standard brass bead. It produces a brilliant, broad tone of medium density with marvelous projection and easy response. The WH leadpipe provides an ideal combination of stability and flexibility; its free-blowing character compliments the centered bell taper. Nickel silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character to the sound, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack. This trumpet makes a great choice as an all-around instrument for performance in a wide variety of musical settings.
