1600 Bb Trumpet 2017-05-01T21:18:09+00:00

Model 1600 Bb Trumpet

The Model 1600 was developed with Los Angeles big band and studio work in mind. It sounds warm and lyrical in the staff, but will really sizzle in the upper register when you want it to. Easy blowing and agile, this trumpet features a lightweight yellow brass bell carefully balanced with a special mouthpipe and medium large bore.

Formerly known as the “WB” Model, this trumpet was designed for the fabulous Wayne Bergeron whose sound can be heard on numerous soundtracks, jingles and the Big Phat Band. Other notable players include John Christianson of Reel Big Fish, Jumaane Smith (lead, Michael Buble), Bob Viavattine (Al Chez & the Brothers of Funk Big Band) and the great Walt Johnson. A Zig Kanstul Signature trumpet!
