Adams A5 Trumpet

Crafted with the commercial trumpeter in mind, the A5 offers exceptional intonation, slotting, and response, catering to the demands of lead players. Surprisingly, its lightweight construction also appeals to classical artists seeking an easy-playing instrument, broadening its appeal beyond initial expectations.

Drawing inspiration from renowned vintage commercial trumpets (like Calicchio, Benge, and Besson), the A5 embodies the best features of each, enhanced by the superior Adams valve block. Despite its lightness, the horn packs a punch, delivering impressive performance even without specialized mouthpieces.

The A5’s responsiveness adds a thrilling "zippy sports car" feel to every performance. The well-balanced design of the instrument ensures a comfortable grip, enhancing the overall playing experience.

In essence, the Adams A5 stands as a testament to excellence in commercial trumpet design, blending the best qualities of renown horns into one exceptional package. Whether in a large ensemble or a small group setting like brass quintets, its balanced core and lightweight build make it a preferred choice for discerning musicians seeking both quality and versatility.
