Jon Boutin's Adams gear

“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!”

In addition to the demanding tour schedule, Jon is also sought after as a freelance player. This includes work in jazz, and commercial settings. Both as a trumpet player, as well as a vocalist.

He has also established himself as an educator, teaching students of all levels, as well as running a full Big band.

In spring of 2022, Jon released his first album of all original music, entitled "Finally". It is now available on all streaming platforms worldwide. Listen here:
