Large Bore Trumpets

Trumpet Buying Guide
From the bell size to the number of valves to even the leadpipe, a trumpet's performance depends on many factors. Of course, the bore size will have a massive impact on how much volume a trumpet delivers, which is why so many concertists opt for large bore trumpets. Whether you play in the key of Bb, C or Eb/D, you'll find large bore models for all the major trumpet types. In fact, this catalog is your one-stop shop for large bore trumpets from all the most respected brass instrument brands, including Conn, Kanstul, Getzen and many others.

In order to make the most of a large bore trumpet's capabilities, you need to have a strong embouchure and plenty of air control. It's for this reason why large bore trumpets are usually recommended for experienced musicians only. With that being said, there are many large bore trumpets here that are crafted with a very open free-blowing feel so that even intermediate players can enjoy producing a boisterous sound from their instrument. Need an example? Check out the Conn 52BSP CONNstellation Series Bb Trumpet. This horn features a .462" large bore, reverse leadpipe construction, professional Montel piston material for quick action and a silver-plate finish. Simply put, the 52BSP is one of the most versatile large bore trumpets on the market today.

There are also plenty of large bore C trumpets here that deserve your consideration. The Bach Chicago Series Stradivarius C Trumpet, for instance, is a top-rated horn that's modeled after the instruments that have been used by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for over 50 years. Featuring a 1st valve thumb ring for effortless tuning adjustment and a classic French bead flat rim on the bell for stunning tone and projection, this is one masterpiece that was clearly made for the discerning stage veteran.

And don't think for a second that your choices stop there. Bass trumpets with large bores can also be found here courtesy of Bach and Kanstul, so have a look around. A hard-earned talent calls for a pro level instrument, and the large bore trumpets that are waiting in these pages were obviously designed with serious performers in mind.
