Shires Q10RS Bb Trumpet: A Harmonious Blend of Response and Warmth

Introducing the Shires Q10RS Bb Trumpet, a distinguished member of the esteemed Shires family that takes the renowned TRQ10S model and elevates it with a unique twist. Featuring a reverse leadpipe, this trumpet is engineered to enhance the player's response and soften the blow, making it a remarkable instrument for musicians seeking unparalleled ease of play without sacrificing sound quality.

Exceptional Design for Optimal Performance:

  • Reverse Leadpipe: The Q05R reverse leadpipe, with its .345-inch venturi in heavyweight yellow brass, is designed for open and free-blowing playability. It ensures well-defined slots and effortless response, making even the most delicate passages accessible.

  • Warm, Singing Sound: The Q10 bell, a 4 13/16-inch one-piece, hand-hammered "Q" (centered) taper in yellow brass with a round brass bead, contributes to the trumpet's ability to produce a warm, singing sound with marvelous projection across all dynamics.

  • Dynamic Versatility: Whether delivering powerful forte passages or gentle piano tones, the Q10RS maintains its characteristic warmth and focus, offering a veiled sound at lower dynamics without losing clarity.

  • Enhanced Tone and Attack: Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps not only add brilliance and character to the instrument's sound but also increase its core, contributing to the cleanliness and immediacy of attack.

Key Specifications for Discerning Musicians:

  • Key: B♭
  • Bore Size: .459 inch, creating a perfect balance between resistance and open playability.
