Versatile trumpet.

The S.E. Shires Model B trumpet features a broad bell flare taper that produces an open, warm, round tone coupled with agile, smooth articulation. The WH leadpipe provides an ideal combination of stability and flexibility; its relatively fast taper adds brilliance to the characteristic warmth of the B bell taper. Brass balusters and valve caps contribute character to the sound, increase its core and facilitate cleanness and immediacy of attack. Commercial, jazz, and classical players alike love the breadth and malleability of the Model B’s sound. Appropriate to multiple professional environments. Order one soon.
