Description:
Our recent design concept is the Equinox.

The Equinox model is essentially a more compact version of the Eclipse trumpet. The valve section has been moved closer to the player. Although the valve section is almost as close to the player as that of a cornet, the Equinox is most definitely a trumpet, in appearance, sound, and feel. It is approximately 4 1/2" shorter in length than a standard trumpet. This was accomplished by reducing both the bell and leadpipe length, and adding it back through an extra wrap around the main tuning slide, and also at the bottom leg of the bell section. Like all Eclipse trumpets, the tuning slide assembly has been attached to the rear bell assembly, resembling an added valve slide.

The Equinox is described by Noel Langley, who has played in leading UK orchestras, orchestral film sessions and much, much more, as responsive and rich toned yet with a screaming top end. Equinox possesses a focused sound with loads of projection. As far as the feel of the horn, it’s so well balanced that it seems to be lighter than a regular trumpet. It feels very intimate and personal, as if the trumpet were more part of you.

Pros: All aspects, to say the truth
Cons: $$$

 
I was very pleasantly surprised by this instrument. It had a beautiful, rich sound that I grew to love in the 30 minutes or so I played on it. The slots were (conveniently) closer to each other than on conventional gear, and made everything seem to much closer in reach. This, in my opinion at least, is a great substitute for cornet parts, and jazz combo work. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who has the interest and cash. Note: I only mention the financial aspect since I myself am a student, and can't afford anything that'll break the bank for me.

Pros: construction, intonation, appearance, tone quality
Cons: amado water keys

 
I have owned a satin lacquered model since November 2003. It seems to have the flexibility of a cornet, yet the projection and power of a trumpet. The valves are some of the best I have ever experienced, very fast and quiet. This horn can handle all types of music well. A strong recommendation.
