Features

  • Available versions: B4, B4B, B4L, B4LB
  • B4 – Yellow brass fixed bell. A medium throat #3 bell with a taper graduated for even and full-bodied tone.
  • B4B – Beryllium copper fixed bell. Medium throat #3 bell made from an extremely lightweight copper, this bell offers a more direct, compact projection.
  • B4L – Tunable yellow brass bell. The detachable bell design allows tuning from the bell, to offer a more open, free feeling in the upper register. With less bracing, the response feels quicker by allowing the bell to resonate more to improve projection.
  • B4LB – Tunable beryllium copper bell. The combination of direct projection and quicker response, this version is the most free-blowing and resonant available.
