C Trumpet Customisation
  • New maximum length heavier leadpipe
  • Shortened 1st valve slide (with optional spring loading)
  • Stays repositioned
  • Bell changed (if required)

This improves the overall intonation and makes the trumpet freer blowing, resulting in a fuller sound (often asked for for orchestral playing).
