  • B5 – Copper brass fixed bell. A medium-large throat #2 bell with a taper graduated for even and full-bodied tone.
  • B5B – Beryllium copper fixed bell. Medium-large throat #2 bell made from an extremely lightweight copper, this bell offers a more direct, compact projection.
  • B5L – Tunable copper 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.
