Wonderful horn! Does play in tune as demonstrated. However I still need to use a 2-3 valve combination for the in staff C. Though that is likely due to my mouthpiece issue and not the horn. The trumpet has a nice full and warm sound , bright but not edgy and an excellent range. Very nice to have a C trumpet that is not flat on the high concert C above the staff! I look forward to playing it in the brass ensemble this fall. You guys rock!
One of the super finds at the 2014 NAMM was this incredible playing Brasspire Unicorn C Trumpet in silver plate. Years later this is still an amazing horn!
This one is a recent demo we sent out to a few universities to check out. It's a fantastic horn at ANY price point. We have a couple at the demo price so grab one today at ACB!
It features a Large .462 Bore, Red Brass Bell with nice semi-flat bead, and great slide rings.
This is IMO the perfect C trumpet for the occasional player, 1st C for the student, or someone who doesn't want to deal with all the alternate fingerings needed to make a traditional C trumpet play in tune. This horn is really incredible.
