The SC Rembrandt trumpet is characterized by its patented shepherds crook bell bend. Inspired by the cornets of old, the
unique bend of the bell allows the horn to play open and freely by allowing the air to travel through the instrument with
less resistance then traditionally designed bells with tighter bell bends. The free blow allows a player to produce a bigger,
broader tone and fuller sound without having to work harder. Whether in a Bb or C trumpet, flugel, or quarter tone horn,
the Rembrandt bell bend is truly unique.
(The Rembrandt and Vermeer both use the same valve cluster, however the Rembrandt models utilizes a nickel lead pipe,
and outer slide tubes. The upgraded nickel tubing is more resistant to corrosion and wear.)
About the Rembrandt Name:
Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669) was a Dutch painter and etcher. He is considered one of the greatest
Dutch painters and printmakers in European art history. His contributions to art came during a period of great wealth and
cultural achievement which historians call the 'Dutch Golden Age'. Rembrandt's greatest creative triumphs are exemplified
especially in the portraits of his contemporaries, his self-portraits, and his illustrations of scenes from the Bible. His self-
portraits form a unique and intimate biography, in which the artist surveys himself without vanity and with the utmost
sincerity. In his paintings and prints he exhibits the knowledge of classical iconography, that of which he molds to fit the
requirements of his own experience. Because of his empathy for the human condition, he has been called "one of the great
prophets of civilization." Simply put, Rembrandt is one of the best.
