Austin Winds Ballanced Ballad #1 Bb Trumpet

Our flagship model - The Balanced Ballad #1 is a complete redesign and is designed to complement our Stage 470LT. This horn, unlike our Stage 470LT, is not intended to be an all around trumpet. It is designed to be a mellow, very dark, fluid playing trumpet for intimate studio and small ensemble situations - perfect for the dark, smokey jazz clubs.

Specs for Balanced Ballad #1:
- Heavy tube leadpipe design and mouthpiece receiver for high efficiency.
- Braced tuning slide and bell bend with our balanced Tai Chi (Yin and Yang) design
- Extra large bell flair in red brass with a nice natural patina beneath the lacquer (custom finishes available)
- Large .466" bore
- Stainless steel pistons (harder to manufacture, but more durable than monel)
- Extra Heavy finger buttons, stems, top caps and bottom caps
- Improved amado style water keys (functionally superior to past designs)
- Extra Heavy finger rings
- Nickel inner and outer slides
- 1st and 3rd valve slide stops
- Hand made in the U.K. to our specs
- Custom finishes available

Austin Winds Stage 466 Bb Trumpet

The Stage 466 is a free blowing, minimally braced trumpet with a consistant tone and feel throughout all registers and volumes.

Specs for Stage 466:
- Heavy tube leadpipe design and mouthpiece receiver for high efficiency
- Minimal bracing keeping the horn free to vibrate
- Large bell flair in red brass
- Polished/brushed clear lacquer finish(custom finishes available)
