Richard Wagner would have been delighted with our new bass trumpet’s tone! Both powerful and very soft, from piano up to fortissimo. But not only is its tone enchanting, its shape, its handling and most of all its intonation set new standards. Same as all of our instruments, the bass trumpet is entirely handcrafted. The hand-hammered bell and the tubings which are manually bent and meticulously calibrated guarantee ease of response and long life.
