Gabor Tarkovi, solo trumpeter for the Berlin Philharmonic has been working closely with the craftsman at Schagerl Musical Instruments to develop the finest rotary C trumpet ever made. The new Schagerl Berlin Heavy Z model rotary C trumpet features a special gold brass bell, tapered rotors, yellow brass lead pipe, high A & C vent keys, combination 1st & 3rd valve slide trigger, large bore and has weighted rotor caps. The tonal color is dark and is rich with overtones. The new gold brass alloy achieves great projection. The color of the sound is evenly balanced throughout the full playing range of the instrument. The new improved lead pipe makes the instrument play free and open and still achieves a secure feel throughout the full playing range. Truly the finest instrument of its type made to date.
