A word from Jon Boutin about Adams Trumpets;
“I spent years searching for a new trumpet with no success. At that time, I had been playing on the same set up for over ten years, but it had stopped working for me. I tried trumpets from the mega companies, and from small custom makers, but nothing seemed to fit. I needed to find something that is extremely versatile. I was about to give up, when I contacted Adams, and asked to come for a visit. I was firstly blown away by the amazing factory. Then I was blown away by the horns! No matter what kind of sound, or tone quality you are looking to get, you will find something that works for you. For me it was the A3! It fits my playing like a glove. I have had it now for a few months, and have played it on many various jobs. It's flexibility still amazes me every time. In one of my first emails I sent to Adams inquiring about a horn, I jokingly said that I needed “the world's most versatile trumpet”. I had no idea that is exactly what I was going to get! Thank you Miel, and to the whole Adams team!”
