Transposing Made Easy!
Many classical pieces of music were written for trumpets in differing keys, including the C trumpet. Rather than transpose in to different keys from a Bb instrument, this Coppergate Trumpet eliminates the need for transposing with a slightly smaller trumpet pitched in a more convenient key of C.
Higher pitched cornets and trumpets generally suffer from intonation issues, particularly on higher pitched notes. However, the Coppergate C Trumpet does not suffer from these problems, creating an instrument that is easy to get in tune, but also to maintain tuning during performance.
The Coppergate C Trumpet has been built to be robust and hard wearing. Featuring a Yellow Brass bell design, this instrument not only gives a warm and characterful tone, but is also rugged and robust. The Cupronickel slides reduce tarnishing and rusting at points where moisture can build up, meaning the instrument will last for many years with only minimal maintenance. The Stainless Steel eliminates tarnish and rust on the valves, giving them a super fast response for years to come.
Everything You Need
The trumpet doesn't just come on its own. Included with this instrument is a mouthpiece that enables you to get playing straight out of the box. As well as this, a hard case has been included, meaning the instrument can be stored and carried safely.
