In comparison to the A2, this trumpet has a larger mouthpipe which will cater to the stronger player or someone looking for a more open feel and response. Adams performing artist Willem van der Vliet helped us a great deal to create this particular model. Recently re-designed, this horn is probably Adams' finest all-around instrument.  

Ideally adept in jazz, commercial, and classical music, this is a very popular choice for the trumpeters of today who want a horn with versatility in terms of the sound shape and articulation spectrum. 


This horn would be made to order (email us if you have any specific questions about it).


Check out the YouTube video of a similar horn for sale. It's magnificent and super fun to play. I helped on the re-design of this horn and it's probably the most efficient and easy ML (.460) bore trumpet I have tried to date.
