C Bore Size:
L - .462"

The Generation II Bb and C offer an integral leadpipe system which allows a player to change leadpipes efficiently. This design creates improved stability throughout the harmonic series compared to non-modular trumpets.

Generation II Bells are handcrafted (one piece) in yellow brass, bronze, or sterling silver available with either 4 7/8" (standard) or 5 1/4" (special order) bell flares. Five leadpipes are also available. Please refer to Bell Options and Leadpipe Options for more information.

Valve sections are available with nickel silver pistons. Nickel silver offers the highest quality action with a very smooth blow. Edwards offers a lifetime warranty on all nickel silver valve sets.

Vented valves are an option on all valve sets. Vented pistons create an effortless approach to using the first and third valve slides. When pistons are vented, the first and third slides move freely whether the pistons are in the up or down position. Vented valves seal as normally as standard valves and possess the same playing characteristics as a standard valve set. Vented valves must be requested at the time the order is placed.

Pros: tone, slotting, finish, valves, adjustments in tone
Cons: none

I tested every "C" horn I could lay my hands on at the recent International Trumpet Guild in NJ (6/06). For me..."this" is the horn, best tone, free blowing, everything about it is superlative. I had them accent the silverplate with "gold" trim just to show it off a bit...and while its only a little...its really sharp. I especially LOVE the feature where there is an "adjustment-nut" between the valve casing & the bell tube that changes the "brightness" of the horn; tightend against the bell tube...bright; loosened a bit...darker, more mellow. I had the valves vented, which is a nice touch on the 1st & 3rd slides. I cannot recommend this horn enough, with the caveat that "to each his own". At this level of pricing...check all the competition. My second runners-up were the new Yamaha NY and/or Chicago "C", in the same price range.
