I am really enjoying this horn and am glad I went with ACB for finding the right instrument for me. I'm a band director and primarily a woodwind player, but find myself modeling on trumpet during my rehearsals. I was looking for a step up horn from the student models I'd been playing that wasn't going to break the bank, and this is a great horn for my needs. The quality is obvious and has been a blast to play the past few weeks. I greatly appreciate all the advice and suggestions I got from ACB and will certainly be recommending them in the future!
Brand new horn that has been play tested but Otherwise is in great shape, and it plays wonderfully! Save a ton off of the price of a new RLGB!
Please note that this horn does not come with a case or mouthpiece
Manchester Brass RL-GB Trumpet
Exclusive North American dealer for these amazing horns
(Trent plays one when he doesn't use his Adams)
We are so pleased with the fantastic success of the Manchester Brass line we asked our manufacturer to make us a complete custom model. This is an AMAZING playing instrument, perhaps the best playing trumpet you will find at this price on the market. Some key features:
Light weight, large flare (think Bach 72) 5 inch bell in gold brass
Nickel Inner slides
Stainless steel valves
.460 ML bore
Each horn will be personally play tested and adjusted by me, optimizing the playability
Check out this video of this exact horn being played in the shop (around the 10:55 mark, make the video full screen)!
I can't begin to tell you how excited we are for this launch. This horn, I believe, could easily sell for $1500-1700 but that has never been our shop's mission to be greed based. We want to provide incredible equipment, personally tweaked and modded by our shop, for a great price.
Quick little demo.... first take only (per my usual)... with two ACB mouthpieces: ACB 3B and ACB Ta-Z
From Mahler to Maynard in 30 seconds... this horn is incredibly versatile and sells for around $1,000!
Here's another example of the amazing RL-GB!
Here's a new review from our customer George in Canada (2.23.17)
"Last spring, after a 50 year break, I decided to take up the trumpet again. I had played a Conn 28B during the 50s and 60s so I knew what a good professional horn is all about, and deciding on the Manchester ACB custom model RL-GB was a bit of a risk because I live in Canada and couldn't take a test drive. But I had already bought a vintage Selmer sight unseen from ACB and it had been a positive experience. Trent and Josh are great guys and you can take them at their word, believe me.
