Intermediate trumpetsÂ â€¯are in a unique collection of instruments separate from beginner and professional models. As their name suggests,â€¯trumpetsÂ â€¯in this class are for players between the two aforementioned skill levels. They are made for serious or developing players.Â
All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. Itâ€™s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the â€˜wantsâ€™ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.Â Â
The attractive price tag, generous bore size (0.46"/11.73mm)Â and the smooth operation of the Monel valves, are just a few of the features that have made the Odyssey SymphoniqueÂ 'Bb'Â Trumpet a favourite with musicians around the world. The bore size alone combines the best of projection volume and air flow, delivering an abundance of signature Trumpet sounds with exceptional tonal qualities.Â
With a 4.8" one-pieceÂ yellow brass bell (4.79"/121.7mm) andÂ Cupronickel outer tuning slides, double braced main tuning slide,Â brass tuning slides, water key and Monel valves, the Odyssey SymphoniqueÂ 'Bb'Â Trumpet with a Bright Silver Plate finish is a real eye catcher without doubt, but itâ€™s also the performance to cost ratio that makes this beautiful SymphoniqueÂ 'Bb' Trumpet a winner. Players from students to seriously professional musicians have commented on the excellent response, superb intonation and the high quality materials chosen in the construction.Â
The 7c size mouthpiece, with its shallower, medium cup size, offering less effort to produce smooth sounds and reach the higher registers, whilst combining the natural deeper, darker tones the Trumpet is known for, tones that are unique among brass instruments and play a major role within orchestras, jazz and commercial bands.Â
The response, intonation and all around performance of the Odyssey SymphoniqueÂ 'Bb'Â Trumpet coupled with the high quality materials, make this an ideal instrument for the serious, developing player,Â or the most experienced musician.Â
As a company producing some of the worldâ€™s finest brasswind instruments, Odyssey recognise the fact that protection whilst travelling with a delicate instrument is paramount.
