Description

I hate to put this horn up for sale, because it's the very first one that came off the line after I helped redesign the A1 in 2019. It doesn't even have a serial number, just my name engraved on the lower tuning slide leg. But I'm working on another A1 project with Adams now so selling this horn will help with the funding for that. This horn will come with three different tuning slides, one each in brass, nickel, and Sterling silver (pictured). And of course the beautiful blue abalone finger buttons! This horn has been my daily driver for a while so there are a few spots of lacquer wear and some pings in the bell, please check out the photos. I'm hoping to find this horn a great new home, it's a great player!

Older style Adams gig bag included. No mouthpiece included.

Redesigned Adams A1 - All New in 2019!

Austin Custom Brass is proud to present the newest Custom Trumpet in the Adams line, the new A1! I helped design this horn with an all-new valve block, leadpipe, and bell taper. It's a fantastic horn with a rich spectrum of overtones and a brighter-than-center sound profile. It's a wonderful all-around trumpet, with a ringing, brilliant sound that really shines in commercial settings. The scale is super even and the valves of course are fantastic!

We designed the original A1 to be a versatile horn for the crossover player. It was the first trumpet in the Adams line (now there are over 10 different models) and it was a fairly traditional setup. We did include two different tuning slides which increased the versatility factor substantially. It's a great trumpet! But the fully redesigned GenII A1 takes full advantage of 7 years of experience in trumpet design and manufacturing to deliver an amazing upgrade over the original A1. Check out this video to hear some of the differences in sound and design:

The new valve block is a two-piece block with nickel balusters so you get a good crispness to the core of the horn. Plus the valve block feels great in your hand, with good balance and ergonomics.

The GenII A1 comes standard with a Saturn water key on the tuning slide (we found the horn sounds best with no water key on the third valve slide).

The tuning slide bend and tapers are all new, as are the bell and leadpipe tapers! The tuning slide bend and bell bow shape give it a really stylish modern look. 

The selected model has satin lacquer and a yellow brass bell with a .50mm gauge.
