These instruments are very well balanced for openness of blow and the size and quality of sound. These are the most open, free blowing trumpets ever made. With the fastest response, wonderfully strong slotting, and superb intonation, it maintains an incredible ease of flexibility and movement.
This is a Flip Oakes Wild Thing in silver plate. This horn is a powerhouse! It is a large bore horn (.470")with a very large bell. It can really take a lot of power. Would easily power over a big band. But since such a large bore and bell, it also has a very warm timbre. Great for a various different styles. Comes with 3 different tuning slides as well. Serial is 28484
