The Rick Braun model is a wonderful instrument, which was designed for Rick's unique tone and sound requirements. It
is perfectly suited for players looking to have a rich, dark sound. This Rembrandt model is designed with a 4X copper bell,
custom lead pipe (.358), and in a medium large bore. The bracing on this horn was modified to fit Rick's needs for sound
and feel. It was made specifically to highlight his style and his beautiful tone. And although it has a darker tone, the upper
register on this trumpet is still easily played, and it sounds great! It is truly a masterpiece.
Johnny Coppola is a trumpet legend. Johnny has played with some of the greatest players of the 50s, 60s and 70s. The
Coppola model is designed on a large bore, Vermeer platform utilizing a three yellow brass bell, and a .350 large reverse
lead pipe. With this combination of bell, pipe, and bore, the horn produces a clear tone with superior projection and
clarity. This horn is great for players looking to play in a variety of settings and music styles.
Claude Gordon is one of the most influential trumpet players and teachers of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. The Claude Gordon
Trumpet is designed with a traditional Vermeer configuration. This horn utilizes a lightweight bell with a 4 3/4 inch bell bead,
which is specific to the Gordon model. The tone is big, bright, and ideal for most playing situations. The large Lead pipe
is also specific to the horn, and creates a free blowing, broad playing trumpet. The horn is offered in two bore sizes: .468
and .470 bore. Regardless of bore choice, both horns use the same bell, pipe, and valve cluster.
