Model 45

With Meinlschmidt valve section, vienna key for C, double trigger, gold plated finish

The model 45 – Our C trumpet with the large, round and full orchestral sound. It was developed with the aim of transferring the great sound of the Bb trumpet to the C trumpet. Immediately after completing the development, the instrument was selected for the entire trumpet section of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. A wonderful instrument for the big romantic repertoire.

The C-trumpet perfectly implements my musical ideas in the orchestra, which is shown on the one hand in its tonal projection into the concert hall and on the other hand by the richness of colours in combination with other instruments.
