|Launched by PJLA at winter Namm, the Phaeton FX custom trumpets will debut Europe at Musikmesse Frankfurt 2007, along with Newport Jazz saxophones and a Phaeton flugelhorn.
The advanced Phaeton FX trumpets are designed to offer the finest mechanical and aesthetic design providing balance, brilliance, articulation plus tonal focus with absolute control. Multiple bracing options for the most discreet performer offers adds an advantage for that personal precision tuning artists search for. "We have spent years studying the tastes and requirements expressed by professional trumpet players throughout the world and are confident these demands have been met with the new Phaeton FX 2007."
The Phaeton FX trumpet offers a number of innovations developed by the manufacturer's acoustical engineers including three sets of interchangeable bracing machined from Bronze, Stainless Steel and annealed Brass. The player now has the easy option for fine tuning his instrument to suit his taste and performing requirements. The beefed up one piece mouthpiece receiver adds a new dimension of control at the point of critical tone production.
Rifle drilled openings in both horizontal Phaeton style braces reduces weight while adding essential response in every register. A faster tapered lead pipe with a larger bore adds more dynamics when needed. Coupling this with a larger bell makes it impossible to over-blow this horn. Reversed tuning slides and lead pipe provide for the smoothest uninterrupted air flow. A short piston stroke design provides speed.
The Phaeton FX trumpet ist made of one piece Yellow Brass with wire bead. Features include 128 mm bell size, 11.9 mm bore, 1.122 kgs weight, slides' outside of Yellow Brass with inside-solid Nickel Silver, mouthpiece receiver machined of solid stock Brass, Bronze/barrel springs, Monel pistons with Red Brass ports, Brush Brass finish, weighted top/bottom caps and finger buttons of solid Brass.
