Model TRQ11RS

A fantastic orchestral C trumpet, the model Q11RS trumpet features our more open bell taper which produces a big, powerful sound with easy response. Matched with a firm, yet flexible slotting reverse leadpipe, this trumpet achieves an ideal balance of breadth, clarity, agility, and projection. Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character to the sound, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack.
