Bb trumpet “Exclusive”

The new " Exclusive" is so far the only Ricco Kühn trumpet with " round " valve passage .

Larger valve diameter and one-piece valve slides allow an almost trouble-free geometry in the valve section. Objective measures , compared with our conventional valve section can hardly recognize acoustic advantages , although the feeling when you play and the sound of the "Exclusive" is very interesting.

Die Trompete wirkt vor allem in der oberen Lage offener, Bindungen gehen weicher, genaue Artikulation erfordert jedoch etwas mehr Aufmerksamkeit.

Klanglich passt dieses Modell sehr gut für Brass- Ensembles, Blasmusik oder auch für sinfonische Besetzungen mit hellem Trompetensatz.
