Thein Rotary Trumpet in C
This is an excellent Thein Rotary trumpet in C.
The trumpet is laquered and has a detachable rose brass bell
with garland. It is fitted with two triggers: one for
the third valve trigger slide, and a pitchfinger
operating on the truning slide. In addition to the water key, the
trumpet also has a C Wiener Klappe (key) to assist with
pitching of the high C (and also high A-flat and E-flat). The
trumpet has recently been serviced
by Thein. The leadpipe is also detachable and the end of the third
valve slide is removable to assit with emptying the water.
This is a great trumpet for orchestral work and for playing solos. Most
of my orchestral work is played using the C trumpet, and I've found the
rotary trumpet has a particuarly good sound for orchestral work, also
blending well with other trumpets (including piston trumpets).
