This is a new Shires Q10R. A unique variation on the Q10, the Model Q10R trumpet features a reverse leadpipe to further facilitate response and cushion the blow. This trumpet produces a warm, singing sound with marvelous projection and easy, centered response in all registers. It also features a heavier bell that helps to maintain its characteristic warmth and focus at louder dynamics, while providing a more veiled sound at lower dynamics. The Q05R reverse leadpipe provides an ideal combination of efficiency and flexibility, allowing the player to produce the most delicate passages with ease. Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character to the sound, increase its core, and contribute to cleanliness and immediacy of attack. This trumpet makes a great choice as an all-around instrument for performance in a wide variety of musical settings.
