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.

  • Larger bell

The bell is 8 2/3" in diameter. The larger bell in combination with other design improvements, produces a singing, colorful open sound with a projecting solid core.

  • Open wrap F attachment

The open wrap has a more open feel and quicker response while using the F attachment.

  • Narrow slide

Having a narrow slide results in a faster slide technique allowing the player to get around the horn easier.

  • Rounded Slide Crook

Eliminating sharp turns in the crook will open the feel and response of the instrument.

  • Adjustable Thumb Paddle

The rotor paddle is adjustable for optimum comfort.

  • Counter Balance Weight

  • Mechanical Linkage

Using a mechanical linkage on a rotor gives it strong, smooth operation.

  • Slide lock

  • Pressure-formed tubing

Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and smoother air flow.

  • Newly designed case
