Description

Redesigned Adams A1 - All New in 2019!

Austin Custom Brass is proud to present the newest Custom Trumpet in the Adams line, the new A1! I helped design this horn with an all-new valve block, leadpipe, and bell taper. It's a fantastic horn with a rich spectrum of overtones and a brighter-than-center sound profile. It's a wonderful all-around trumpet, with a ringing, brilliant sound that really shines in commercial settings. The scale is super even and the valves of course are fantastic!

We designed the original A1 to be a versatile horn for the crossover player. It was the first trumpet in the Adams line (now there are over 10 different models) and it was a fairly traditional setup. We did include two different tuning slides which increased the versatility factor substantially. It's a great trumpet! But the fully redesigned GenII A1 takes full advantage of 7 years of experience in trumpet design and manufacturing to deliver an amazing upgrade over the original A1. Check out this video to hear some of the differences in sound and design:

The new valve block is a two-piece block with nickel balusters so you get a good crispness to the core of the horn. Plus the valve block feels great in your hand, with good balance and ergonomics.

The GenII A1 comes standard with a Saturn water key on the tuning slide (we found the horn sounds best with no water key on the third valve slide).

The tuning slide bend and tapers are all new, as are the bell and leadpipe tapers! The tuning slide bend and bell bow shape give it a really stylish modern look. 

The selected model has satin lacquer and a yellow brass bell with a .50mm gauge.

    Great All Around Horn!

    Posted by Gary J Greenfelder on 20th Aug 2021

    The updated Gen II model is great! It plays great at all volumes and any style music. I have played it for big band solo work, from Maynard to Ballads as well as my brass quintet. This horn responds well to mouthpiece changes so you can get the results you want! Will enjoy this horn for years to come I am sure.

    Adams A1v2 Gen II

    Posted by Brad on 22nd Jun 2021

    Quick review of this great horn: EXCELLENT build quality, slots are solid and stable without feeling “stiff”. Solid core to the sound, leaning a bit towards bright., or maybe resonant is a better term. I’m using this horn 95% for “commercial”, but I believe it would work equally well for legit (concert band, etc.). As usual, Trent, Josh, Nate and Kyle (I’m probably forgetting some folks) have done a great job in horn prep and quick shipping. Buy from ACB, you will not regret it!

    Very nice horn. Plays smooth and easy. Notes slot very well. Feels like it blows more free than my strad 37.

    A1Gen2

    Posted by Wayne on 24th Oct 2020

    To be honest I am Adams fan, I own A4Lt and A10 both are great horns. But my new A1Gen2 is beautiful and amazing. Love tones, the way it index.. The biggest difference is its easy of play, especially in upper range.. Again this horn is amazing, great job Trent.

    gen II A-1 trumpet

    Posted by Jeannette Walker on 15th Oct 2020

    I have just received the gen II A-1 trumpet. As promised it was lighter and easier to play then my current trumpet. This was an issue for me since I had a heart issue this last spring. This trumpet allows me to continue playing without the stress of using a lot of air so is great. The people at Austin custom brass were very helpful and even sent me a personal video of the trumpet being played before shipping. A nice touch! I love it.
