New for 2005 the Lawler BC takes design cues from the Bach trumpets of the 50's. The bell is a copy of the 37 taper and is made with a one piece seam and hand hammered. The bells are soft tempered to give it that warm full resonant sound. The leadpipe is also a #25 taper with a slight modification for better intonation. The main tuning slide is non-reverse but can be ordered reversed. You will find that the articulation and response is better than to older trumpets due to stress free assembly. Bore sizes available are ML .459 L .464 XL .468. All finishes are available.
