Description

Here's a cool horn from Trent's quiver.  As you know his house rule is "one-in and one-out".  This is a very special horn as Trent  worked on this exact horn with Miel Adams and it's completely handmade.  This one was made for the incredible Frank Greene (currently lead trumpeter in the Count Basie Orchestra). Frank was the main influence on the A5 and worked at the factory many times with the team at Adams to create one of the finest commercial trumpets in the world.    It's in incredible playing condition.  I think Frank had taken off the leadpipe to "clock it"  and have it custom mounted so you can see the wear at the solder points in the lacquer. That is strictly cosmetic as the horn is in wonderful condition otherwise.  A few small pings and dings (T put those in on commercial gigs).

 

 

We could strip and polish the horn for an additional $175 and it would look in excellent +  condition.   T's priced it accordingly given the handmade nature of the horn and the provenance. 

 

If you're looking for a killer commercial trumpet at an affordable price, grab this horn while you can!

The Adams A5 Bb Trumpet - A Commercial Powerhouse

This is a killer horn - huge tonal spectrum (see video below) and we love the gold lacquer. It's durable and it looks so good!!

The A5 is perfectly suited for the commercial trumpeter looking for a lightweight horn with excellent intonation, slotting, and response. Initially when we designed this instrument here we thought it was only going to cater towards the commercial/lead trumpeter but we find many of our classical artists looking for an easy-playing instrument for “pops” work also liking this very much.
