Red Brass Monster Bb Trumpet
Please have a look at these photos. If you look closely you can see the differences between the different RBM designs. All these differences are carefully planned and discussed before and sometimes during the building process. For overseas customers or customers that live too far to visit I offer a close monitoring service by sending picture, videos and sometimes even a live video feed of the building process. When it comes to the design I make sure that we never go over the line of functionality and playability but I will always try to make your instrument as personal as possible.
If you like to read about how people have experienced the process of ordering and the communication dynamics during the build please have a look at the customer reviews page.
Universal Work Horse Bb Trumpet
This instrument is a different kettle off fish. It has a slightly lighter build and it is meant to have in a similar kind of character as a “good old” Bach Stradivarius. The way they are (unfortunately) not made anymore, but then better, obviously. It is very responsive and will blend effortlessly. Just like any other trumpet I make the resistance is very even and it can have many custom options.
A big difference here is for example the lacquer that gives a classic feel to the instrument. In raw brass this instrument would look a lot less “classic”. I thought it was nice to show these differences. If you have any questions about the custom options and what exactly can all be customised then please contact me.
