Description:
C- Trumpet, model T 053 / C


The C- trumpet corresponds acoustically to the model T 053/Bb. For its development a great deal of experience with the Bb- trumpet manufacturing was successfully drawn upon. According to its shorter length this trumpet is equipped with a slightly narrower bell in medium ( 125mm) or large ( 130mm).

Pros: good intonation, warm but brilliant sound, very free blowing
Cons: small production, not available everywhere

 
The Ricco Kuehn 053 C Trumpet allows to play all classical musical genres. The trumpet is at home in a big symphony orchestra but also in small ensembles or in solo concerts.
The product quality is very high, the tunes never block when they are pulled in or out. The finish looks excellent (my trumpet is gold plated). The craftmanship is in the best German tradition.
Blowing this horn is a real pleasure: every register comes very easily the air flows very free through the instrument. No problems when changing the registers, no interruption between. The high register? Very free up to high f. The intonation is excellent in all registers, no tone falls out.
The trumpet is at home in all dynamics. From ppp to fff, the sound is always wonderful warm with a small brilliant and bright attitude, but never sharp. The sound is not as dark as other rotary trumpets in the German tradition and that makes the trumpet familiar with all classical styles.

Pros: Sound, intonation, versitility, craftsmanship,
Cons: nothing!

 
I bought this Ricco Kuehn rotary C trumpet in gold plate after owning a Monke Herseth for several years and playing a Ganter for a year or so. The Kuehn is by far the finest rotary I've played. The sound is so versitile with a solid core and some brilliance. I got the large orchestral bell which is still tons smaller than the Monke Bb bell on the Herseth. Intonation is a dream on the Kuehn. I play it with either a Schilke F1 or Curry 1.5TFL depending on sound and range. Valves/slides work great! The plating is unbelievable (24k GP). Vienna key works well also. Beautiful horn!

Pros: versatility, huge sound comparable to B trumpet, easy to play
Cons: none

 
Certainly one of the finest rotary C trumpets available today. Blowing is very free and the trumpet is extremly responsive. Even at fff it doesn't start belting out in the slightest - the sound simply remains amazingly warm and just gets bigger and bigger, gaining more brilliance the more you push it.
From Mozart symphonies to contemporary orchestral pieces that often require quite extreme dynamic differentiation, the Kuehn has become my C trumpet of choice.

Pros: Tone, intonation, center, beauty
Cons: none

 
I bought this horn in like new condition from a Swiss player who's going over to the jazz side and didn't need it. I think I got a great deal on it. I spent some time with a colleague who has a Schagerl, and we both agreed the Kuhn had a better core, great response and a slightly brighter tone than the Schagerl (I don't know which model it was). The Kuhn also fits the left hand easier, not such a big stretch. I think this is a superb trumpet, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great C rotary.
