Taylor Chicago Custom Trumpet
The Taylor Chicago Custom Trumpet is the big boy of the Chicago range. Massive big, dark sound. Capable of tremendous volume and extreme subtlety as well. Blow it hard and the sound just gets bigger and bigger, never really introducing much cut. It just gets louder and louder. There is no shut off point either. It will just keep increasing in volume till you physically can’t give it any more air.
But it also has a softer side. This is probably the main reason for the Chicago Customs popularity with Jazz soloists. A warmth of sound at lower volumes that other trumpets so rarely possess. The ability to taper off the volume to little more than a whisper without loosing control. The way you can change the tonal colours within the same musical phrase. This makes it one of the most expressive and lyrical trumpets you could ever play.
