Description

This trumpet model was built for the jobbing musician. It is made for a musician like myself (Kyle Lambert, KCTC owner). I often find myself playing at weddings and corporate events, playing top 40 and such. I needed something that could do that, but could also play a small group cocktail hour on the same gig. This is why this trumpet exists, for the working musician. It is modeled after the sound of players that I look up to, like the great Jerry Hey.

SPECIFICATIONS:

 

1 Leadpipe - a well rounded leadpipe that is more suited towards commercial work. It has just enough to give the player some resistance to push against, but it won't back up on you. 

 

YS Bell - This bell is more suited towards commercial work, but can warm up a bit for small group settings. It features a 5.25" flare, a french bead, and is made of yellow brass. It is a once piece, side-seam bell. 

 

Bronze Tuning Slide - This unbraced bronze tuning slide provides some warmth to the sound. It balances well with the YS bell!

 

Nickel Silver Z Braces - Our Z braces are made of 1 piece cast nickel silver, with a wide footprint, paying homage to makers like Calicchio and Benge. They provide great stability, and the nickel give the horn a bit more precision in terms of the attack

 

MAW Valveblock - Wonderfully handcrafted in Germany, the MAW valve block is in general a bit more open than a standard valve set. The notes feel much more connected, more like a rotary instrument.

 

Finish We have many finishes available (raw brass, brushed raw brass, 'gasoline' raw brass, satin lacquer, or combo satin lacquer), just reach out to us when placing your order!

 

 

 

No case or mouthpiece included.

No coupons can be used on this instrument. Thank you for understanding!

    I fell in love with this horn at ITG. Sold my Bach and ordered it last week. I immediately put it through a trial of fire, being in the midst of a 12 show run. It surpassed my expectations, notes above the coming out so cleanly and easily that I was literally laughing on stage. The MAW valve block allows the horn to blow very easily, but efficiently. I’m not as tired after shows now either. All in all, a great horn, from a great company! Thanks Kyle!!
