Adams A5 Trumpet

The A5 Trumpet is perfectly suited for the commercial trumpeter looking for a lightweight trumpet with excellent intonation, slotting and response.

Initially when we designed this instrument, we thought it was only going to cater towards the commercial/lead trumpeter but we find many of our classical artists looking for an efficient free blowing instrument for ‘pops’ and show work also like this very much.
