A seriously impressive trumpet
OneTimeRedhead, 19.01.2019
This is a seriously impressive trumpet. Its ML bore and 4.72-inch bell mean that there is no compromise on both timbre and volume of sound. So, whilst many will buy a pocket trumpet for travel and/or practice away from base, this instrument can easily match a regularly configured trumpet. And intonation is also as good. The third-valve tuning-slide ring is operated by the left-hand thumb and I find this very efficient (indeed, more so than the fourth finger standard operation) and remarkably easy to accommodate. However, this configuration means the first-valve tuning slide ring is moved by the right-hand thumb and its disposition is awkward: it is about 15 mm too low and, thus, slightly occluded by other piping and it leans away from the right hand thumb, making it less than easy to access. This could be remedied so easily by CarolBrass. However, unless you are continually growling away in the bottom-most register, as in some orchestral 2nd trumpet parts, this is inconsequential, and, even if you are condemned to dwell at and below middle C sharp, you can extend the third-valve slide more so than conventionally and, if needs be, ?lip? down a trifle!

Once you get used to lacing your fingers through the right gaps in the tubing, the instrument is very comfortable to play. There is, however, one change I?d definitely recommend to CarolBrass. There are two water keys. That on the first crook in the tubing is as expected and essential. That on the fifth crook (which is beyond the valve casing) seems largely redundant. Indeed, I find that nothing accumulates here but that significant amounts of water accumulate in the third crook (just before the valve casing). This is where a water key would be useful if, that is, aerodynamics permit. It would obviate having periodically to remove the second-valve slide in order to expel water that has accumulated in the third crook.

The finish on the instrument is superb and I found tuning slides and valves very smooth and manipulable ? even the third-valve slide with its widely-spaced sleeves. The case that has been supplied is very good. But, given that many will wish to buy a pocket trumpet to pack in their luggage, I wonder if a gig bag might be more appropriate? Regardless of any minor niggles, I fully endorse this impressive instrument.
