Model description

The low F trumpet was developed from the baroque trumpet in the 19th century. The addition of 3 valves made it possible to play chromatically, even in the lower range.

The rotary valves were used in the German-Austrian region, the Piston valves in the French region. THEIN Brass offers both versions of the low F trumpet.

THEIN offers a Bb-set to change the tuning of the low F trumpet to a piston or rotary Bb-trumpet.
