Eclipse C Trumpet (UK), Custom built in Feb. 2019, Tuning Slide Trigger, Silver plate with Gold accents

Custom built for me in Feb. 2019 by Leigh McKinney at Eclipse Trumpets (UK).

Silver plate with gold accents.

Played professionally but still like new. No dents or dings.

No brace from 2nd valve casing to bell to allow more resonance in the hands. Horn still projects like crazy with a beautiful, in-tune sound!

Trigger to tuning slide allows for micro-tuning during play to tune down any pitch on-the-fly, especially for playing with organs where the pitch center shifts from stop to stop, quick mute/mouthpiece/horn changes in cold rooms, a simple option to lipping down notes played Open or 2nd valve, like high notes at the end of a long concert. Excellent sound, response, pitch (without use of trigger)!

Two Saturn water keys.

The 5th harmonic E and Eb do not require alternate fingerings.
