The S.E. Shires Model 401 trumpet is the latest version of S.E. Shires' original signature C trumpet. It features a uniquely balanced heavyweight “4” bell taper, which combines a big, powerful sound with easy response. The bell of the 401 updates the design of traditional C trumpet bells in that it is bent slightly shorter, resulting in a Z-brace placement closer to the bell bend. For some players, this can solidify the feel and quicken response. Matched with the open 401 leadpipe and the centered and projecting WF tuning slide, it produces an ideal balance of breadth, clarity, depth, and projection. Yellow brass balusters add warmth to the sound while nickel-silver valve caps add brilliance and character, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack.
