Shires' most popular trumpet.
The Model A has become the most popular S.E. Shires Bb trumpet. It produces a brilliant, singing tone with marvelous projection and easy, centered response in all registers. The centered bell taper produces a focused sound and facilitates projection. The WH leadpipe provides an ideal combination of stability and flexibility; the free-blowing character compliments the centered bell taper. Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character to the sound, increase the core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack. The Model A makes a great choice as an all-around instrument for performance in a wide variety of musical settings. The Model A trumpet includes a case.
