The Model A has become the most popular S.E. Shires B-flat trumpet. It produces a brilliant, singing tone with marvellous projection and easy, centred response in all registers. Its centred bell taper produces a focused sound and facilitates projection. The WH leadpipe provides and ideal combination of stability and flexibility; its free-blowing character compliments the centred bell taper. Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character to the sound, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack. This trumpet makes a great choice as an all-around instrument for performance in a wide variety of musical settings.
