The J. Scherzer “Cologne” model 8217 rotary valve trumpet in C is ideal for the romantic style of repertoire with a gold brass body that blends much easier with other members of the brass section.The 8217 features a larger 5.197″ bell which allows the instrument to have a balanced feel in terms of resistance, resonance, and intonation.
This instrument is ideal to perform music intended or written for natural trumpet due to the ability to play at full volume without being overpowering. With its high quality of German craftsmanship, Johannes Scherzer has a deep family history of making brass instruments for over 100 years: In 1900, Emil Knoth founded and ran the Rino workshop in Marknuekirchen until his son, Kurt Knoth, took over and eventually put the business in the very capable hands of his nephew, Johannes. Ever since, J. Scherzer has been manufacturing only the highest quality hand-crafted rotary valve trumpets.

Valves: conical rotary design; 3B linkage system
