You know I love Adams instruments. The reason is the creativity of Miel Adams (the head designer at Adams), the warmth of sound, the huge tonal palettes, and the amazing Bauerfeind valves! Intonation is incredible and even. And of course the best fit and finish on the market! Adams has an incredible diversity of trumpet models so you have a huge choice of options!
Selected A1 Gen II - Yellow brass bell with 5" diameter and .50mm gauge in satin gold lacquer with a Saturn water key in the ML bore. This is a fantastic commercial trumpet with a slightly brighter-than-center sound profile and a super fast response!
Selected A2 - Yellow brass bell with 5" diameter and .50mm gauge in either polished lacquer or silver plate. ML bore. This is an incredible horn for classical and all-around work Thick core, crisp articulations, and a super fast response!
Selected A3 - Yellow brass bell with 123mm diameter and .60mm gauge in either polished lacquer or silver plate. ML bore and reversed leadpipe. Thick, warm sound with lots of core and projects to the back of the hall!
Selected A4LT - Yellow brass bell with 5" diameter and .45mm gauge in satin gold lacquer with an amado water key. L bore (.470"). A fabulous free-blowing instrument that can be dark or brilliant depending on the mouthpiece. Popular with both jazz soloists and salsa musicians!
Selected A4 - Gold brass bell with 5.5" diameter and .40mm gauge in satin lacquer with an amado water key. L bore (.470"). A broad, warm sound in a heavy style horn with ovate tuning slide and heavy receiver! (weighs about 2.5lbs) Such a beautiful horn and very popular with jazz soloists!
Selected A5 - Yellow brass bell with 5" diameter and .45mm gauge in gold lacquer and ML bore. The brightest horn Adams makes with a quick response and excellent for commercial work!
Selected A6 - Yellow brass bell with 5" diameter and .45mm gauge in lacquer and S bore (.438"). This horn is reminiscent of the best of the Connstellation models but lighter and more responsive!
Selected A7 - Gold brass bell with 5" diameter and .40mm gauge in lacquer with the L bore (.470"). Very free-blowing and warm sounding trumpet that's popular with European orchestral musicians!
Selected A8 - Gold brass bell with 5.5" diameter and .45mm gauge in satin lacquer with the L bore (.470"). The integrated mouthpiece and thicker bracing make this horn a thick, broad, and dark sounding horn perfect for soloists!
Selected A9 - Yellow brass bell with 5" diameter and .50mm gauge in copper lacquer comes in the large bore (.468"). This trumpet is inspired by the Martin Committee and has a velvety, veiled sound and is very fluid!
Selected A10 - Yellow brass bell with 4.7" bell and .50mm gauge in either gold lacquer or silver plate. This is a ML bore trumpet with an open leadpipe. Like the A2 it has a quick response and solid core, though it is a little darker than the A2. It's a fantastic horn for all-around work!
Coppernicus - Copper plated polybore trumpet with 2 shepherd's crooks and 5.5" bell. The lightest trumpet Adams makes. This is the most unique design Adams and I have worked on. It is EXTREMELY versatile with an efficient and quick response and very broad sound! Check out how mouthpiece responsive it is in the video below!
I have literally hundreds of Adams videos! Here are a few:

The best flugels on the market! Handmade in the Netherlands with Bauerfeind valves and the best materials and fit and finish! The flugels have rich, warm, and dark sound with impeccable intonation. All four models come with 2 leadpipes to dial in the blow (both with the same receiver taper).
Selected F1 - Red brass bell and nickel silver flare with 160mm diameter and .45mm gauge. Satin lacquer finish with .413" bore. Quick and responsive with a "Couesnon style" sound!
Selected F2 - Gold brass bell with 170mm diameter and .55mm gauge. Brushed lacquer finish with .413" bore. Big, broad contemporary flugel sound for the perfect soloist sound!
Selected F4 - Red brass bell and nickel silver flare with 160mm diameter and .45mm gauge. Polished lacquer finish with .413" bore (reaching to .433" through the 4th slide). The 4th valve drops the pitch down a 4th for ensemble work or playing in the tenor register!
Selected F5 - Copper bell with 160mm diameter and .60mm gauge. Polished lacquer finish with .413" bore. Straight thru valve block with short stroke, bottom sprung valves - this is a super dark but not tubby flugel!

"Making custom mouthpieces is one of the main reasons I opened up my shop. I wanted to make a mouthpiece that felt comfortable, had a rich sound full of overtones, and didn't zap my endurance! After a lot of time on the lathe, I'm proud to say I've developed a comprehensive offering of mouthpieces sizes for any gig! We have the absolute highest tolerances in the industry!" -Trent Austin
