ODYSSEY PREMIERE C KEY TRUMPET W/CASE
Two Trumpets on one - Comes with extra B flat slides
B-flat and ?C Trumpets ?are the standard trumpets commonly? seen. In bands, the B-flat ?Trumpet ?is king, whereas the? C Trumpet? is much more common in the orchestra and in Europe. The? C Trumpet ?is written at concert pitch, allowing the trumpet to follow the vocal or piano score, while the B-flat sounds a second lower than written.
All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. It’s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the ‘wants’ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.
The attractive price tag, (Basically two trumpets for the price of one - Bb/C) generous bore size (0.46"/11.73mm) and the smooth operation of the Monel valves, are just a few of the features that have made the Odyssey Premiere 'C' Trumpet a favourite with musicians around the world. The bore size alone combines the best of projection volume and air flow, delivering an abundance of signature Trumpet sounds with exceptional tonal qualities.
Red? Brass, also known as? Rose brass has the highest copper content at around 90% and gives a warmer and mellower tone than that of alloys with a higher zinc content.
With a rose brass bell (4.79"/121.7mm and rose brass lead pipe, nickel outer brass tuning slides, water key and Monel valves, the Odyssey Premiere 'C' Trumpet with a clear lacquer finish and two material build is a real eye catcher without doubt, but it’s also the performance to cost ratio that makes this beautiful Premiere 'C' Trumpet a winner. Players from students to seriously professional musicians have commented on the excellent response, superb intonation and the high quality materials chosen in the construction.
The 7c size mouthpiece, with its shallower, medium cup size is ideal for beginners, offering less effort to produce smooth sounds and reach the higher registers, whilst combining the natural deeper, darker tones the Trumpet is known for, tones that are unique among brass instruments and play a major role within orchestras, jazz and commercial bands.
The response, intonation and all around performance of the Odyssey Premiere 'C' Trumpet coupled with the high quality materials, make this an ideal instrument for the first time player, teacher, or the most experienced musician.
