Model 6F

The S.E. Shires Model 6F/6FD E♭/D trumpet offers all the security and agility that you would expect from a small horn, but with a sound is powerful enough to lead a large orchestral brass section. The standard weight 6F bell provides a bold, centered core that holds together at even the fullest dynamics—characteristics tempered by the easy response and warmth of the Y6H leadpipe.
