The Adams A2 is one of the most popular trumpets in their line. It's an incredibly versatile horn that will serve you well in just about any musical environment you can think of. Here's an opportunity to save some money vs. buying a brand new horn. The leadpipe has been replaced, as you can see from the solder joints. Tuning slide feels best with a heavy grease like Ultra Pure Heavy. Valve compression is great. There's some plating wear on the leadpipe. There's a dent on the second valve slide, a smaller ding on the bell tail, and a few small mute pings on the bell. Comes with the fantastic Adams Gard single bag.
Adams A2 Bb Trumpet - Great All-Around Player!
The new A2 has been redesigned and developed with some of the UK's leading orchestral B-flat trumpet players. Tested throughout Europe and the US, this new model is a true international collaboration and a very popular new addition to the Adams range.
It is a very well balanced trumpet, combining reassuring stability and great projection, with a full even sound across the whole range of the instrument.
This trumpet is very responsive in every dynamic and has the agility to adapt to all playing styles, from solo recitals to concert halls.
The A2 is one of the finest all-around trumpets that Adams has built to date! Here's a quick comparison video with the Adams Sonic trumpet (released 2019) and our ACB Adams trumpet:
