This is the top-of-the line bass trumpet in the world, at a great price. Initially designed as a alternative to the valve trombone, the B188 bass trumpet is well suited for everything from Wagner operas and solo work, to jazz ensembles, brass quartets, and marching bands. The 7" diameter one-piece hand-hammered professional yellow brass bell provides tremendous volume and projection. It requires the use of a small shank trombone mouthpiece. The 1st valve thumb ring allows for quick intonation adjustments while the Monel pistons provide smooth and quick action. The clear lacquer finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. These features combined with a .485" bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound well suited for all types music.
