Hello all.
Anyone out there have an opinion about the Naumann Baroque trumpets?
Three hole? Four hole? Hass or Ehe bells?
Any input form someone who has played these instruments is welcomed.
Thanks very much.
Rob

I got to noodle around in a three-hole some years back. I knew nothing about how to use them, so I just covered them all up.

Was an incredibly easy horn to play, despite the fact that I had never played anything like it before.

I walked out of the shop wishing I could have bought it.

Naumann trumpets are nice baroque trumpets at a great price. I have three of them in my studio here at Hastings College. If you are mostly interested in dabbling, they're perfect. If you want to do some serious study and eventually gigging on baroque trumpet, I would suggest shelling out the extra $ for an Egger, Norwich, or other higher end horns. Think of a Naumann as comparable maybe an intermediate model. I played an Egger and recently switched to a Norwich, and the Naumanns just simply do not compare to them.

As far as 3 vs. 4 hole... if you have shorter arms, 4 hole can be a stretch. But 4 hole is more versatile as far as tuning, etc. It just works better. Both hole systems are a compromise, though.

Bell profiles work better in certain keys as well as on a 3 or 4 hole model. The Haas bells tend to work better on 3 hole horns (especially in the key of C) and the Ehe bells tend to work better on 4 hole models (especially in the key of D). These are just my observations, of course. YMMV.

I hope this is helpful!

With both an (old) Egger from 1988 and one of the first Naumanns ever made - both with Ehe bells, I find the Naumann to be a little less of what I think of as a baroque sound. It plays very well, and seems to be terrific as a compromise instrument for Mozart etc.

As my Egger is not as refined as current models, you can probably expect a ot more bang for the buck using a new, top spec, hand hammered Egger.

cheers

Andy

I played on a 3-hole Naumann for a brief time, and found it pretty hard to play. Playing a 4-hole Egger, Parker, or Tomes was like driving a sports car in comparison.

Thanks for the input y'all. It's for the conservatory so I'll check out the budget.

Isuggest you to check out the baroque trumpets made by the french maker Laurent Renaud. I know many pro players in Europe bought his trumpets and quality is excellent for the price.

Laurent is a nice guy. Talk with him and tell him what you want. He speaks english.
