This is the American rendition of the classic French Besson trumpets. It has tremendous projection and a lively texture to the tone that is both brilliant and warm.
The medium large bore makes it highly efficient, but never "stuffy". It is very flexible and agile in its response, allowing for great expressiveness, while maintaining a solid tone core and good intonation.
"My Chicago Bb is very responsive in all registers and at all dynamic levels. The intonation is outstanding. A great horn in any performance setting."
