Description

In comparison to the A2 this horn 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. This trumpet has very big targets, and it will slot easily.

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.

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.

    Great all around trumpet

    Posted by Tung Pham on 15th Nov 2016

    Quick and responsive. Tonal spectrum is warm to bright. Small in the hands. Adams craftsmanship is the best!
