This trumpet is no showpiece. It is a reality. It's a great sounding, great playing, practical and fully functioning trumpet. If you can handle being noticed, then this is the place to look. Some of you want the edge image wise, well, what are you waiting for? And you can sound great into the bargain.

On the technical side, the 'Phoenix' is available in ML (.460") and L (.470") bores. The Standard 'Phoenix' has very subtle sheet bracing to emphasise the side shape profile. The Custom has the stylised flame cut out bracing on all four plate braces. All Phoenix models have 'forward slash' cut ferrules on the tuning slides (except on 2nd valve tuning slide, not enough room!)
The rectangular bell shown in photo is an optional extra (at extra cost) and does not effect the sound in any way. Flamed engraving on the bell on all models. The total weight of the Phoenix Custom comes in at slightly less than the Chicago Custom

All the internal tapers are based upon the tried and tested Chicago models, so you know it will play well. By doing less heat treating on this trumpet it has a slightly brighter sound making it more versatile than the darker Chicago Custom.

You can choose from the usual Taylor finishes including our new 'Olive' finish. This emulates that gorgeous colour found on trumpets 30-40 years old that have never been touched. It's darker, slightly greenish but very natural looking. The rare 'Vintage Find' look, and it suits the 'Phoenix' very well.
