Adams A9 Trumpet

Many of our clients have been asking to take the classic design concept of the Martin Trumpets of the mid-20th Century and improve on the sound, intonation and slotting. The result after much prototype work is the A9 Trumpet. This trumpet comes standard with a large bore of 12 mm, but is also available in a medium large 11.5 medium bore when ordering as a custom instrument.
