The Model Q10S trumpet produces a warm, singing sound with marvelous projection and easy, centered response in all registers. The Q10 bell maintains its characteristic warmth and focus at louder dynamics, while providing a more veiled sound at lower dynamics. The Q05 leadpipe provides an ideal combination of efficiency and flexibility, allowing the player to produce the most delicate passages with ease. Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character to the sound, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack. This trumpet makes a great choice as an all-around instrument for performance in a wide variety of musical settings.
