Learn more about the Adams ACB Collaborative Trumpet!!!
The Adams ACB collaborative model is a great trumpet, built by Adams and available exclusively from Austin Custom Brass! This trumpet is an extension of the incredibly popular Adams Prologue series, with custom tweaks to Trent's design specifications. In this updated design we use a 5-inch bell with traditional flare, added a standard weight body with nickel trim, and added a new custom leadpipe with nickel trim. The result is a fantastic trumpet, and due to some advancements in the Adams manufacturing process we can offer this model for a simply unbelievable price!
This is a wonderful horn for the player looking for their first professional trumpet, the serious amateur looking for a great playing horn, or the advancing student ready to move on from a rental or hand-me-down trumpet. If you want to experience the exceptional quality of an Adams trumpet but at a more affordable price point than their custom series, then this is the horn for you!
Check out how well the quality of the Adams ACB compares to some of the more expensive Adams horns:
The horn is made in the Adams factory in Holland by the incredible staff at their brass factory.
Here's what some of our customers have to say about this horn:
"I've only been playing trumpet about a year. The Adams ACB was my first horn and although my playing experience is limited, I've found the Adams ACB to be an excellent instrument. It's rather light weight and the thing I like most about it is its beautiful warm tone. It feels very nice in your hands and you can tell the quality in its construction is there and you sure can't beat the price. I would highly recommend this trumpet!" -Jon
"Been playing commercial, and big band lead for about 30 years now. Upon trying this horn I couldn't put it down! It really puts out whatever you feed it. Amazing at its price, and performs way above. Don't hesitate...it's outstanding, and with beautiful craftsmanship too!!" -Brian

- Comes with an Adams gig bag!
The Adams branded Gard gig bag is stylish and protective:
Made from 1680D ballistic nylon fabric with supple water buffalo leather, this is a stylish and sleek bag. Perfect for easy traveling! The superior protection is a result of Gard's patented mid-bag suspension system that holds the trumpet in place, and then reinforced by 2mm thick PVC inserts. This case also comes with a rain protector that can cover the case, and a luggage tag. It could be used as a backpack, or over the shoulder. The front pouch can fit plenty of accessories as well!
Here's a customer review of this gig bag:
"Great product!! I was a little skeptical about a gig bag as they usually sacrifice protection for convenience/light weight. That is not the case with this gig bag. Lots of padding and protection. A fixed cone pad inserts into the bell to stabilize the horn. Also shoulder strap makes it easy to carry. Outer ballistic nylon is a very nice heavy weight that adds to the overall quality of this product."
Of course you should NEVER DO THIS:
The ACB 3C mouthpiece:
The ACB 3C is my take on a fantastic Bach 3C mouthpiece from the late 60's. I had never played a 3C like it, and I immediately knew it would be a great starting point for my own customized 3C. I think the added mass and proper matching backbore make this a formidable all-around mouthpiece! It has become one of the most popular mouthpieces in the ACB Standard Series.
"Trent's own description of the ACB 3C mouthpiece is dead on: I have never played a 3C like it! I've played GR, Monette, Curry, Bach, etc. mouthpieces in the past and hands down this is best I've ever played. The sound it produces has such a warm, buttery core with sparkling overtones and it just feels right on your chops. I love the look of the mouthpiece too—I chose the standard ACB blank which has a real hip Al Cass-inspired look to it (that extra weight around the rim really adds weight to the sound too). You owe it to yourself as a trumpeter to try one of Trent's brilliant mouthpieces—you'll be glad you did!!!!" -Ray
Denis Wick Aluminum Straight Mute:
The Denis Wick aluminum straight mute is one of the most widely-used trumpet mutes on the market. It's an industry standard mute that many professionals keep in their collection. Made from high purity spun aluminum, these handmade mutes blend perfectly, provide unmatched brilliance and projection, and have excellent intonation. Available in aluminum, brass or copper bottom, Denis Wick offers the most comprehensive line of straight mutes available.
Hercules Stands DS410B TravLite In-Bell Trumpet Stand
The DS410B TravLite In-Bell Trumpet Stand offers a compact design for storage inside the instrument bell when your trumpet is in its case. This stand features a velvet base to protect the interior finish of the instrument bell plus a folding five-leg design that's very stable and folds up to 7 inches in length. It is very convenient in the fact that is it lightweight (adds a little under half a pound to the case) AND it can be stored in your bell in order to minimize the amount of extra room you need to carry it to gigs/rehearsals/etc. This is one of the stands that we use to display our instruments at ACB. Our customers like them too:
"This Hercules trumpet stand is the best. It's small, lightweight and does the job well. Very convenient and easy to use." -Garret
