Ah yes, the Model Custom™. This instrument has a special meaning to me. Attached to tradition, I was bound to go back to my roots. The pre-war French Besson had a unique sound and so did the Chicago Model Benge. The Vermeer™ Model Custom™ is reminiscent of those types of Trumpets. Traditional “Classic” trumpet sound, suitable for most musical situations. Also features a 4¾ bell diameter with no tuning slide brace.
