This is the perfect upgrade from a student/rental trumpet! A very lightly playtested RLGB trumpet in lacquer. This is one of our best selling entry-level professional trumpets at ACB. Check out the description below, and don't forget to pick up a mouthpiece (not included); our ACB Fab 5 mouthpiece is a great place to start! Give us a call at 816-410-0826 with any questions.
Manchester Brass RL-GB Trumpet
ACB is the exclusive North American dealer for these amazing horns!
(Trent plays one when he doesn't use his Adams)
We have been so pleased with the fantastic success of the Manchester Brass line that we asked our manufacturer to make us a completely custom model, the RL-GB. This is an AMAZING playing instrument, perhaps the best playing trumpet you will find at this price on the market.
Some key features:
- Reversed leadpipe
- Lightweight, large flare (think Bach 72), 5-inch bell in gold brass
- Nickel trim
- Nickel inner slides
- Stainless steel valves
- .460 ML bore
- Deluxe carry bag with backpack straps
- ACB Precision Valve Alignment
- (If you would like to add an ACB mouthpiece, click here!)
This horn has an absolutely huge sound profile and tons of versatility (recording clips below).
I can't begin to tell you how excited we are for this launch. This horn, I believe, could easily sell for $1500-1700 but it has never been our shop's mission to be greed based. We want to provide incredible equipment, personally tweaked and modified by our shop, for a great price.
Here's a quick little demo track (first take only, per my usual) with two ACB mouthpieces: ACB 3B and ACB Ta-Z.
From Mahler to Maynard in 30 seconds... this horn is incredibly versatile and sells for around $1,000!
Here's another example of the amazing RL-GB!
Here's a thorough review from our customer George in Canada (2.23.17):
"Last spring, after a 50 year break, I decided to take up the trumpet again. I had played a Conn 28B during the 50s and 60s so I knew what a good professional horn is all about, and deciding on the Manchester ACB custom model RL-GB was a bit of a risk because I live in Canada and couldn't take a test drive. But I had already bought a vintage Selmer sight unseen from ACB and it had been a positive experience. Trent and Josh are great guys and you can take them at their word, believe me.
