Features

  • Available versions: B6, B6B, B6L, B6LB
  • B6 – Copper fixed bell. A medium-large throat #2 bell with a taper graduated for even and full-bodied tone.
  • B6B – Beryllium copper fixed bell. Medium-large throat #2 bell made from an extremely lightweight copper, this bell offers a more direct, compact projection.
  • B6L – 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.
  • B6LB – Tunable beryllium copper bell. The combination of direct projection and quicker response, this version is the most free-blowing and resonant available.
  • Medium bore
  • Medium-large throat bell
