This Carolbrass CCR-7772R-GSS(5.25D)-Bb-L is in near pristine condition. Its pistons & slides are buttery-smooth. Only 14 inches long, -it delivers a gorgeous
tone ranging from golden dark with a deep mouthpiece, to brilliant and sparkly with overtones When played through a shallow cup.


• Triple crooks: on bell branch, 3rd slide, and outflow of lead pipe are key to its golden warmth.
• Custom large 5.25-inch bell in medium weight gold brass for an expansive core-rich tone.
• Large 0.465 bore for flexible power.
• Highly reliable stainless-steel valves.
• Weight-optimized Bottom caps for snappy intonation: medium on 1st valve, light on 2nd, and Heavy weight on third.
• Medium weight top caps and brass finger buttons
• Near pristine clear lacquer finish for low maintenance.
• Carolbrass Classic mouthpiece
• Original Carolbrass hard wood-shell case with generous compartment for accessories. It features a rip-resistant black cloth cover. Reinforced brown edge
trims. Brass clasps, hinges and corners. And inner protective form-fitting foam with plush lining.

The CCR7772 Bb is a musical chameleon: The Curry TC makes it lush and expansive. it sings orchestral under a Curry DC. Ballades are Dark and smoky with
a Wick 2 or custom Curry 7 FLD (cornet shank), Yet, in bebop my short triple-crooker zings brilliant when driven by a Stork D or a Curry P cup.

Here are my own impressions of this CCR7772 on TrumpetHerald, starting at:
