Features

  • Available versions: X4, X4B, X4L
  • X4 – Yellow brass fixed bell. A large throat #1 bell with a taper graduated for even and full-bodied tone.
  • X4B – Beryllium copper fixed bell. Large throat #1 bell made from an extremely lightweight copper, this bell offers a more direct, compact projection.
  • X4L – 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.
