Description

Austin Custom Brass is proud to present the newest Custom Trumpet in the Adams line, the A10. This horn was built for trumpeter Ludovic Louis who most notably performs with Lenny Kravitz. I did also help a bit on the horn's design and playability as well. The horn has elements of some of our most popular horns such as the A1, A4, and A5  but is very much it's own instrument. Sound wise it is rich and free with great carrying power in the upper register. A unique bell shape, tuning slide, customized lead pipe, and all-new Adams valve block really make it a wonderful all-around trumpet. 

 

Need help choosing your options? Give us a call at (816) 410-0826 and we'll be happy to discuss your custom A10 build.

Custom Bell Gauges:

- The thinner the gauge of the bell results in a more energized, faster response.


- The ticker the gauge of the bell will result in more stability and density to the sound

 

Bell Materials:

Yellow Brass

This bell is an excellent mix of materials for all round work as this material is very versatile. The sound is clear and brilliant at all dynamic levels, with a good core and great projection. This alloy is ideal for lead trumpet, commercial playing and studio work. Also a good choice for principal trumpet players in symphony orchestras or someone who is looking for good crispness to the articulated sound.


Gold Brass

Like the yellow brass bell this is a very versatile horn - a near perfect blend of warmth and projection. The gold brass brings a depth to the sound which is very smooth, rich and dark, however it is still a lively and agile trumpet. It responds quickly and has good projection without getting as brilliant as the yellow brass bell. We find it to be suited to a host of applications: be it in the jazz soloist, the crossover artist, the classical soloist, or someone who is looking for depth to sound while still retaining projection.


Red Brass

The Red Brass bell material is an ideal choice for the soloist who is looking for the richest, warmest, thickest sound available. Higher in copper content than our other two bell choices this provides the player with the smoothest transitions from note to note. Articulations are veiled (although with a lighter Red Brass bell option it is greatly improved) and sound shape is overall a bit wider in shape.


Sterling Silver

We do offer all Custom Series Trumpet Models with a solid Sterling silver bell. Sterling silver is a very versatile material but also much more dependent on the individual’s particular ability level. Therefore we recommend this bell option for the serious amateur or professional. The general characteristics are the bell is much darker and thicker when played at soft to medium volumes. When this bell is pushed the higher overtones are much more present and the result is a wonderful sound with great “sparkle.”

 

Finishes:

Raw Brass

This is actually no finish. The raw material of the instrument is only polished.


Silver Plated

This finish will liven and energize the sound slightly.


Gold Plated

This finish will leave the sound very similar to the original raw state.


Clear Lacquer

The instrument keeps the look of the raw material.


Gold Lacquer

A gold tone is added to the clear lacquer.


Copper Lacquer

A copper tone is added to the clear lacquer.


Antique

Colored lacquer which gives the instrument a typical antique look.

    Beyond my expectations! I'm looking forward to lesson to get the most out of this horn as I can. Have never had a horn that compared.

    Solid from top to bottom!

    Posted by Roger Levering on 21st Dec 2015

    As a current Adams owner, it is very hard to beat the quality of my current trumpet. The A10 takes it to a whole other level of playability! First and foremost, it plays INSANELY in tune though all registers! Secondly the ease of playing, from slotting to note to note is by far the easiest I have ever played. Lastly, the .50 weight with the well thought out craftsmanship of the horn gives it such a solid core to the sound like no other! If you are in the market for a fantastic Adams trumpet, add the A10 to your list!!
