Sound and tone are very important to me. Also the mechanism of the valves has to function flawlessly in order to spontaneously alter the pitch. My Van Laar B7 trumpet incorporates all of these elements in a way that allows me to truly interpret and realize my improvisational ideas. This horn has a soul and it’s alive.
