The Odyssey Premiere 'Bb' Trumpet, a favorite among musicians worldwide, boasts an attractive price tag, a generous bore size of 11.60mm (0.45"), and Monel valves for smooth operation. This trumpet delivers signature sounds with exceptional tonal qualities, combining optimal projection volume and airflow.
Constructed with red brass, or Rose brass, boasting around 90% copper content, the Odyssey Premiere features a 123mm (4.85") Rose brass bell, a Rose brass lead pipe, nickel outer brass tuning slides, water keys, and stainless steel valves.
