OVERVIEW

Pro trumpet from Blessing.

The Blessing BTR-1580B features a one-piece hand-hammered bell, Monel valves, lever water key, nickel and brass slide tubing, external valve caps, and a .460" bore. It is a modestly priced, beautifully constructed, great-sounding professional trumpet. Comes with case and mouthpiece.

This instrument features the all new Blessing Bead Blast finish, a truly charming look that is unlike any other. It is a textured finish with almost an egg shell texture, one that is not reflective or shiny, but not flat or dark either. It is both beautiful and unusual, and will enhance pride of ownership.

E.K. Blessing has rededicated itself to the tradition, heritage, and artistry of trumpet making. Beginning with the redesign of the student instruments and most recently the introduction of the first professional trumpet made by Blessing since the 1960s, Blessing instruments have seen a revolution. The introduction of new combinations of bell shapes, tapers, lead-pipes, tuning slide assemblies, valve and piston dimensions have created instruments that have consistently exceeded the player's expectations.

Comments about Blessing BTR-1580B Classic Series Bb Trumpet:

I bought this after practicing some time on my old school band horn from many years ago(Yamaha 2320) and this really steps it up a few notches. Firstly, it has a one-piece bell, which is rare in the under 1k range. I could feel the overall weight and power of this horn was much greater than the predecessor. It feels like it really wants to be played loud and just feels comfortable in that blasted jazz kind of sound. I had one valve with some poorly finished threads that loosened up after playing, but after oiling it and cranking it down extra tight, it seems to be holding fine. This trumpet appears to be modeled after a Bach Strad., but I haven't compared them side-by-side. I wouldn't be surprised if this could be comparable to the 3k ones though. The bead blast finish is awesome. It looks like cold aluminum with condensation on it, should be interesting to see how it ages. The mouthpiece appears top-notch, one-piece and all, no complaints. Overall, I'm happy with this trumpet, it has a great look and tone for funk and jazz. Maybe the q.c. let some some stuff slip though.
