Coppernicus: The All-New Austin Custom Brass by Adams Trumpet in Copper!

(4 reviews) Write a Review

"Miel and Trent knocked it out of the park with the design of the Adams ACB Coppernicus. The sound pallet features a range of anything from smokey, ethereal and dark to a bright commanding presence. This trumpet is perfect for an artist who might find themselves playing in a wide variety of settings. If you perform as a soloist, but also play some lead, this is the horn for you. The instrument sounds beautiful in a concert hall, but can also scream in a club. It has the feel of a medium bore horn, but sounds large, and is extremely easy to play. The copper finish is unique and compliments the overall design well. Thanks so much to the entire team at Austin Custom Brass for helping me select this beautiful, playable work of art. "

"Wow!!! This is my favorite. Playing it for five days, including 1 rehehearsal and 2 concerts it excels in slotting, tone, sound and build quality, and effortless projection. The moment Miel and Trent handed me this trumpet, I knew I had to have it. Thanks Miel and Trent for making a trumpet designed especially for me, sorry Trent!!!!" -Ralph Bill

Description

Introducing Coppernicus, the Double Shepherd's Crook Trumpet from Austin Custom Brass!

The ACB by Adams Coppernicus is an exceptionally versatile trumpet due to its great efficiency and broad tonal spectrum. There is so much room to explore and find your own sound on this instrument. No wonder it's so popular with our customers! Check out all of the videos on this page to hear a small sample of the possibilities:

Coppernicus is completely handmade by my friends at Adams in the Netherlands. After many years of collaborating on trumpet designs we decided to take our relationship to another level with the Coppernicus. This horn is an evolution from our previous instrument, the Hornet, and it's much more versatile both in sound shape and efficiency.

We intentionally designed this trumpet to be very mouthpiece sensitive. This is one of the things that makes Coppernicus so wonderful for road gigs or small clubs (or in this case the home studio). Enter a new sonic world just by switching up your mouthpiece! Check out how the sound changes over the 6 mouthpieces in this video:

But don't just take our word for how great this trumpet is, check out some of the reviews we've gotten from our customers who love it too!

Here is a review from our customer Richard Harris (3/27/19):

"The Coppernicus arrived today and it is BEAUTIFUL!!! I had previously owned an [Adams] A4, and although the horns look similar, there is no comparison in the way they play and respond. The Coppernicus is better in every way that the A4... the sound in every register of the instrument is better, and with the double shepherd's crooks, the horn can really take on a gorgeous, rich, robust tone that I believe to be superior in every way to the A4, which was itself a very good horn. Please pass on a string of superlatives to Trent and to Miel Adams for having designed and built ONE HELL OF A FINE HORN!!! I am going to flat out LOVE this fine instrument!" 

Hear how the Coppernicus compares with some other high-end instruments:

Here are some basic specs on the horn:

  • Copper plated finish with clear lacquer
  • Poly bore setup to maximize efficiency and volume palette (overall feel is similar to a medium large horn)
  • 5.5 inch bell with extra large flare
  • Amado water keys
  • Double Shepherd's crook design
  • All-new valve block design
  • New leadpipe design
  • Recessed caps
  • Lightweight (lighter than a stock Bach Trumpet) and extremely well balanced in the hand
  • Completely handmade at the Adams factory (including valve block and copper plating)
  • Comes with the great Adams Gard single bag!
  • Mouthpiece not included (click here to see our Standard Series mouthpieces!)

Here's a review from our customer Steve on 1/2/19:

"The Coppernicus caught my eye because I love the look of copper. Knowing it was offered by ACB and made by Adams was the clincher. ACB has been my go-to for anything trumpet for a few years now and will be forever. I played the Coppernicus as soon as it arrived (which was very quick even though it was a week before Christmas) and totally love it!!! I’ve been playing for 57 years and other than the picc I got from ACB, the Coppernicus is my first non hand-me-down horn. Great horn from great people!!!"

    Fun to Play!

    Posted by Gary J Greenfelder on 20th Aug 2021

    This is a great solo ballad horn with a velvety smoky sound. I play my regular mouthpiece on this horn and it is still so mellow. With other horns I have darkened my sound by using a deeper cup mouthpiece. This play fine with my (medium) cup mouthpiece. Band and audience feedback is... they LOVE the new sound! 100% positive feedback on this horn so far! I can't stop playing it!

    Big sound!

    Posted by Robert Turchick on 16th Jan 2021

    I was lucky to find one on the used market. At the time I was looking for something completely different from my Bach 37. From Trent’s videos and talking at length with the previous owner I pulled the trigger! I couldnt be happier with this horn. It is so easy to play with crazy fast valves and easy blow. But this is all about the sound. It is thick and warm with my standard mouthpiece and with ACB’s “magic” deep V mouthpiece turns into a flugelhorn! The last season our community band met I used this horn. I noticed the director (a fantastic trumpeter) glancing at me when I pushed more air in loud passages. This horn projects!! Not bad to back down and blend in... easy on the chops! From recording several things with all my horns, this is the biggest, warmest sounding horn I own or have ever played. Do I have to mention the color?
