CarolBrass CTR-3050H-GSS-Bb-L Bristol Model Trumpet
Here at Trevor Jones Brass & Woodwind we are so enthusiastic about CarolBrass trumpets we commissioned our own student model – The CarolBrass CTR-3050H-GSS-Bb-L Bristol Model Trumpet .
This new model is based on the 3050H but with a few tweaks aimed at the UK student market. It features a standard size and weight gold brass bell with gold brass leadpipe for durability and a fuller sound. The yellow brass body maintains a light-weight feel which is ideal for young players. With a squared main tuning slide for optimum resistance this trumpet is very easy to play.
We think this is a great student trumpet which could see players through from the early stages right up to grade eight. The Bristol Model utilises the same top quality stainless steel pistons used throughout the CarolBrass range to ensure years of trouble-free operation.
