The Mother from Del Quadro Custom Trumpets is one incredible horn! It's absolutely gorgeous (see photos) and it has a lot of thoughtful design elements.
Check out the copper bell! The diameter is 5.5 inches, although it opens up through the throat in a fairly traditional taper. The bell ferrule is quite long, which adds stability to the sound.
There's no bracing between the bell and the valve block, which gives you great tactile feedback of the resonance of the bell. The bell-to-leadpipe bracings are stress free point-to-point style bracings reminiscent of the Conn Vocabell bracings.
All of the inner slide legs are brass except the bottom leg of the tuning slide. The valves have nickel silver uppers which adds crispness to the sound.
This horn has a Getzen valve block (one of the best valve blocks on the market) and the valves feel fantastic.
The third valve slide has a removable harmonic balancer.
There's only one water key, an Amado key on the main tuning slide.
No case or mouthpiece included.
