Pros: Everything
Cons: Price...but it's worth it...

 
Hi Everyone,
My name is Daniel Rosenboom. I've been working with Ken Larson as long as I've been getting work done on my trumpets, and I can say with full enthusiasm that Ken is a master craftsman. I've had my C, B-flat, and E-flat modified and customized by Ken Larson and these instruments were the pinnacle of what I thought possible, even when compared with the newest, hottest instruments on the market. But when I tried Ken's new GFT line of custom instruments, I was completely blown away. I'm actually trying to sell my current instruments, which are spectacular horns, so that I can buy a complete line of these horns. The C trumpet comes in 2 models, which are very similar. The main difference is the width of the tuning slide: one is a standard width and the other is the New York Bach width. The latter is what I prefer. The horn has an unbelieveable range of color and flexibility, but slots and plays in tune like a piano. It sings with a beautiful tone at all dynamic levels, but can sounds like a flugel or a sizzling lead trumpet if you need it to. The response is immediate and clear and articulation is easy. I can't say enough good things about this instrument. I absolutely love it and could not be more impressed. Ken Larson's GFT C trumpet is perfect for anyone looking for an artist-level instrument. Bravo Ken!

Pros: An advantage to all pro players,one hell of a spectacular horn.
Cons: addictive.

 
May 2007, I contacted Ken with the project of making me one of his GFT C's which was to be quite a heavy task as I live and work in Spain and not able go to him and try out his trumpets before starting work on mine. However after many e-mails and phone calls to Ken explaining exactly the feel I wanted, he just seemed to know what I was looking for and set to work right away.Everything was comunicated to me as he worked on the trumpet and as he comleated each section was finnished and sent to me on the date he said.I received it at my home in perfect condition

I,ve spent a couple of weeks getting adjusted to the feel and I can only say a huge amount of positive things about this horn, she plays increadably well,all notes just seem to be in there place, tuning is perfect and responce is excelent and just to top things the tone quality is great.(makes my exsisting Bach,s feel like biginners trumpets).A huge thanks to Ken Larson and brasswerks for making my life as a pro musician become even more enjoyable. She,s one hell of a Trumpet!! Thank,s Ken.

Pros: Efficient and adaptable
Cons: Not made in Australia!

 
G'day everyone,

I have been playing one of Ken Larson's BrassWerks GFT C trumpets in my capacity as a pro trumpeter within a service band for over 12 months now. I have found Ken's horn to be a most efficient and adaptable instrument for my primary performance applications of brass quintet and concert band playing. After an initial stage of re-adjustment from playing a Bach C, Ken's horn just took over as a superior instrument in terms of intonation, efficiency and eveness across the pitch register. Ken's trumpet has great response across the dynamic range and a core resonance that is more adaptable and colourful compared with my old Bach. Discussing the specifications with Ken along the way was an interesting and enlightening experience- it was great to have real options to choose from. I have found Ken's GFT a really exciting horn to play.

Cheers

Jason
