This is a new Shires model AHW Bb trumpet. This variation on the standard S.E. Shires Model A trumpet features a heavier bell that helps to maintain its characteristc warmth and focus at louder dynamics, while providing a more veiled sound at lower dynamics. It produces a powerful, singing tone with marvelous projection and easy, centered response in all registers. Its centered bell taper produces a focused sound and facilitates projection. The WH lead pipe provides an ideal combination of stability and flexibility; its free-blowing character compliments the centered bell taper. Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character to the sound, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack. This trumpet makes a great choice as an all-around instrument for performance in a wide variety of musical settings.
