BELL

This bell has a medium taper throughout, but it's just a bit larger than average, which makes it great for producing a broader sound.

The final flare diameter is quite oversized compared to common trumpets and combined with the copper stem produces an incredibly wide range of tone colors, increased projection and a darker sound.

Solo MAX 6 - DSC_8594_edited.jpg

This horn produces a full-bodied sound complete with shiny overtones and warmth in all registers, at all dynamics and it's ideal specifically for jazz soloists/non classical players who prefer an oversized bell horn.

We do not recommend this horn for orchestral players or classical players that play in a section.

An XL or XL2 cup will obviously have a huge tone but the really amazing combo with this horn is just how rich and full-bodied the medium cups sound. With the horn applying a filter of deep saturated tone color, the M cup can sets off a canopy of shimmering fireworks over everything. It plays with incredible stability and agility 

which gives you wings to musically go places you’d never even dare to try with most oversized bell horns.
