Rotary Valve Design!
Meister Johannes Scherzer Trumpets are handcrafted instruments manufactured in the tradition and experience, based on centuries of music instrument making. Scherzer piccolo trumpets have a sound like no other. Because of the rotary valves, they have almost a "Piccolo sound with out the edge." Also the short throw of the rotary valves allows for speed that is unmatched. Includes case and mouthpiece.
This rotary piccolo trumpet comes standard with four mouthpipes, 1-A and 3-Bb. The A mouthpipe is the standard which is used for converting the instrument to the key of A. The variations of the 3-Bb mouthpipes deals with the resistance that each pipe can give a player. The decorative rings on the mouthpiece receiver specify the tapers of the mouthpipes: I (M), II (ML), III (L). The I pipe has a tight taper which will give the most resistance. This will allow a player to create a very bright sound and also it will help the high register speak more clearly. The II pipe has a standard, more common taper which will help in all of the registers of the piccolo trumpet. The III pipe has a more open taper, which offers the least amount of resistance to a player. This pipe will create an open feel with a full rich sound.

Comments about Scherzer Meister Johannes Rotary Valve Piccolo Trumpet:
The Scherzer rotary valve piccolo trumpet is one of the best horns I have ever owned. It has a even sound over the whole horn with a quick response and dead on intonation. Both the upper lower range were very easy and open, going up to G or A on a regular basis was not a problem. The rotary valves are quick and I never had a technical challenge that they couldn't meet. 3 Bb leadpipes lets you vary the sound and focus of the horn to your taste or the style of the music. I used the biggest, most open one for everything but that is just me. (I use big equipment mouthpiece and horn wise for everything) I found the A leadpipe a great match for the Bb one and it was easy to switch back and forth in a few seconds if necessary on recitals or other gigs. If you are looking for a great all around piccolo trumpet this is one you should try.
