The 9630 is especially well suited for use in place of B or C trumpets, due to its large sized 5″ bell (bigger than the bell of many B trumpets) which gives a broad warm sound. A 4th valve extends the lower range making it possible to play most B and C trumpet parts, and the added weight from the extra valve adds substance to the sound.
Hand-hammered one-piece bell
A one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the instrument’s material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered yellow brass bell produces a perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing.
Hand-lapped pistons and slides
Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
Laser-fused pluzuma-welded bell
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
One-piece, drawn gold brass leadpipe
This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance.
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
