Looking for a truly custom Adams trumpet at a killer price? How about an A4 with a gold brass shepherd's crook bell!
Here's a sweet deal on a find from the Adams factory! . They're based on an earlier build spec than the current A4 shepherd's crook, so we're able to offer it at a juicy discount (about $1000 under 2022 pricing for a new one). This is a fantastic instrument in beautiful brushed lacquer. This trumpet has a great combination of lush soloist sound with lightening fast response!
Check out the video demos of the A4 shepherd's crook model:
Here's a video of a pre-owned A4 shepherd's crook trumpet we previously sold at the shop!
The shepherd's crook bell is a popular custom option on the A4 for a number of reasons. The shepherd's crook design brings the end of the bell slightly closer to your ears than with a straight bell trumpet, so you'll experience excellent feedback while playing the horn (the thick bell bead helps with this as well). This bell style also gives you a broader palette of timbre and articulations to work with, which makes this horn a great choice for the expressive player.
The A4 is one of the most popular models in the Adams trumpet line, and for good reason! This horn is a result of extensive collaborative design work with Adams Performing Artist Amik Guerra. One of the heavier models from Adams, the A4 features a lighter-gauge 5.5-inch one-piece bell and a heavy chassis (valve block, bracings, etc.). This horn is an ideal choice for the soloist looking for an extremely rich, warm, fluid, and thick sounding horn.
One of the things we love about the A4 is its versatility! This trumpet is great in many different musical environments due to the wonderful coloring and richness of the sound.
