A Masterpiece of Sound and Agility:

  • Centered Bell Taper: The Q13 bell, a 4 13/16-inch masterpiece, is hand-hammered with a centered taper in yellow brass, featuring a round brass bead. This bell design is crucial for producing a sound that is full and rich, yet remarkably agile across all registers, enabling musicians to navigate the complexities of their repertoire with ease and expression.

  • Optimized Leadpipe: Equipped with a Q leadpipe that boasts a .347-inch venturi in heavyweight yellow brass, the TRQ13S offers an open and free-blowing experience. Well-defined slots and an easy response ensure precise intonation and effortless playability.

  • Enhanced Sound Characteristics: The addition of nickel-silver balusters and valve caps not only elevates the instrument's visual appeal but also enhances its sonic qualities. These features contribute to a sound that is brilliantly clear, with a solid core and an immediate, clean attack.

Specifications Designed for the Discerning Musician:

  • Key: C, offering the clarity and projection needed for complex orchestral works as well as the subtlety required for solo and chamber music.

  • Bore Size: The .462-inch bore strikes a perfect balance between resistance and openness, facilitating a responsive feel and a broad tonal palette.

  • Precision Engineered Components: The hand-lapped monel pistons ensure smooth, reliable action, while the standard weight two-piece casings with nickel balusters enhance the trumpet's durability and resonance.

Elegance in Every Detail:

  • Artistic Finish: The silver-plated finish not only protects the trumpet but also accentuates its sleek design, complemented by the S.E. Shires maker's mark, model designation, and a traditional floral pattern bell engraving that signifies its elite craftsmanship.

Complete Professional Setup:

  • This trumpet comes equipped with a Q Series trumpet case, mouthpiece, and care kit, providing everything needed to maintain the instrument in optimal condition, ready for any performance scenario.
