Model TRQ13S

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. Matched with a firm, yet flexible slotting 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. The Model Q13S trumpet is equally at home in orchestral, solo and chamber settings.
