Improved Projection

Overall design has been updated with a brace at the main tuning slide section and slightly increased playing resistance.With the capacity to maintain solid tone when overblown, plus outstanding projection, this instrument can deliver beautifully defined sound over long distances outdoors.

Ideal Weight Distribution

The leadpipe and main tuning slide have been redesigned, and the valve casing has been moved closer to the player to improve weight distribution. Because the center of gravity is closer to the player, the instrument is noticeably easier and more comfortable to hold.

Water Key Designed for Use While Playing

A water key added to the bell U tube can be operated by the left-hand thumb for easy water drainage while the instrument is held in the horizontal playing position.

Flag Rings

Flag rings on the bell provide a convenient way to attach flags that enhance to the atmosphere at colorful ceremonies.
