Baroque Trumpet, J. W. Haas, ca. 1690-1710

 

This trumpet is based on an original by J. W. Haas made around 1700, and is perfectly suited for baroque repertoire from the beginning of the 18th century and beyond. Its smaller bore and narrower bell flare produces a clear, bright sound, making it particularly playable in the high register.

A full set of bits and crooks is included with every instrument.
