Q Series Trumpets
Using the resources of S.E. Shires' parent company, the Eastman Music Company, we have been able to develop a more affordable class of professional brass instrument: the Q Series. These instruments represent the philosophy of Eastman Music Company, to produce the finest musical instruments at every price point. Q Series are entry level professional instruments that have many of the same features as their custom counterparts. When you purchase a Q Series instrument you join the S. E. Shires family, a family which includes some of the finest professional musicians in the world.
The Model Q10S trumpet produces a warm, singing sound with marvelous projection and easy, centered response in all registers. This trumpet makes a great choice as an all-around instrument for performance in a wide variety of musical settings.
A unique variation on the TRQ10S, the Model Q10RS trumpet features a reverse leadpipe to further facilitate response and cushion the blow.
A fantastic orchestral C trumpet, the model Q11RS trumpet features our more open bell taper which produces a big, powerful sound with easy response.
The Model Q13S trumpet features a centered bell taper helping it to produce a full, rich sound while maintaining incredible agility throughout all registers of the instrument. The Model Q13S trumpet is equally at home in orchestral, solo and chamber settings.
