Odyssey Premiere Bb Pocket Trumpet W/case
All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. It’s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the ‘wants’ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.
A POCKET Trumpet is the perfect instrument for keeping your lips 'ticking over' whilst away from home. As they use a standard Trumpet mouthpiece, the player is able to take their normal mouthpiece with them to use whilst practicing on their Pocket instrument.
For the young student who wants to start on a brass instrument and the gigging trumpet player who needs to take a practice instrument on the road with them, the Odyssey Premiere 'Bb' POCKET Trumpet features a bell and lead pipe in rose brass and a handy throw on the main tuning slide to fine tune as you play.
MASSIVE SOUND FOR SUCH A SMALL TRUMPET
The attractive price tag, generous bore size (11.65mm/0.45" and the smooth operation of the Monel valves, are just a few of the features that have made the Odyssey Premiere 'Bb' POCKET Trumpet a favourite with musicians around the world. The bore size alone combines the best of projection volume and air flow, delivering an abundance of signature Trumpet sounds with exceptional tonal qualities.
Red Brass, also known as Rose brass has the highest copper content at around 90% and gives a warmer and mellower tone than that of alloys with a higher zinc content..
With a Rose brass bell (93.20mm/3.7") and Rose brass lead pipe, nickel outer brass tuning slides, throwable main tuning slide, water key and stainless steel valves, the Odyssey Premiere 'Bb' POCKET Trumpet with a clear lacquer finish and two material build is a real eye catcher without doubt, but it’s also the performance to cost ratio that makes this beautiful Premiere 'Bb' POCKET Trumpet a winner. Players from students to seriously professional musicians have commented on the excellent response, superb intonation and the high quality materials chosen in the construction.
The 7c size mouthpiece, with its shallower, medium cup size is ideal for beginners, offering less effort to produce smooth sounds and reach the higher registers, whilst combining the natural deeper, darker tones the Trumpet is known for, tones that are unique among brass instruments and play a major role within orchestras, jazz and commercial bands.
The response, intonation and all around performance of the Odyssey Premiere 'Bb' POCKET Trumpet coupled with the high quality materials, make this an ideal instrument for the first time player, teacher, or the most experienced musician.
As a company producing some of the world’s finest brasswind instruments, Odyssey recognise the fact that protection whilst travelling with a delicate instrument is paramount. To ensure players can maintain a high standard with this instrument, Odyssey has included gloves and a cleaning cloth, whilst a plush lined, Zero-gravity ‘backpack’ hard foam, canvas covered case with shoulder straps takes all the worry out of commuting with such a delicate instrument.
