The FX-1100 Trumpet offers a number of exclusive innovations, including three sets of interchangeable bracing machined from Bronze, Stainless Steel and annealed Brass. The new beefed-up solid brass stock mouthpiece receiver adds a new dimension of control. Rifle drilled openings in both horizontal Phaeton style braces reduces weight while adding essential response in every register.

A faster large bore tapered lead pipe adds more dynamics when needed. That, coupled with the trumpet's larger bell, makes it virtually impossible to over-blow this horn. Reversed tuning slides and lead pipe provide for the smooth, uninterrupted air flow. The trumpet also features a short piston stroke design for high speed and a signature Brush Brass finish and Solid Brass hex shaped weighted top/bottom caps & finger buttons. An all-wood, oversized Vintage Tan Tweed carrying case is included, with leather trim and brass hardware and a burgundy velvet plush interior throughout.
