The New Blessing BTR1660 ‘Artist’ Bb Trumpet offers a professional musician the flexibility to move the sound dynamically and tonally. The BTR1660 was designed for a modern player that demands a versatile instrument. It features an American made one-piece, hand-hammered, side seam, yellow brass bell with a steel bell bead and two-piece valve casing with nickel balusters. The result is a resonant trumpet with great character and a broad range of color. Easy to play and even throughout, the sound is brilliant, providing great feedback and projection off the bell. Aiming for the American sound concept, the BTR1660 Artist Trumpet provides the build quality and precision expected by the advanced player of any age.

BTR1660R with Raw Brass Finish: The finish on a trumpet is primarily aesthetic and a personal choice. The difference between a plated trumpet versus an unfinished instrument is tonally subtle. Buffed and polished, an un-plated raw trumpet will naturally tarnish over time. It provides the classic patina consistent with the character of a vintage brass instrument.
