The Getzen Genesis Trumpet is as unique as it is beautiful. From heavy crook bracing, to its interchangeable leadpipe system, the Getzen Genesis trumpet truly is a cut above the rest! The turmpet features two very unique design elements:
- All Getzen Genesis trumpets feature an innovative interchangeable leadpipe system, allowing players to quickly change the feel and response of their trumpet. The “S” pipe (standard) is perfect for solo performance and projection and the “O” pipe (open) offers less resistance and a bit more nimble performance for most players.
- Getzen Genesis Trumpets feature a heavy crook bracing concept. Both the bell crook and ovate tuning slide crook are braced with heavy brass plate. This adds extra mass to the trumpet and allows for a much more centered and even tone. The ovate bend of the tuning slide also adds to the even feel of the trumpet by giving it a freer blow and improved intonation.
Along with it’s unique characteristics, the Genesis carries with it many of the high quality features found on all Getzen Custom Series Trumpets including a one piece, hand-hammered yellow brass bell with a large throat and 5 1/8″ flare. The trumpet uses a .462″ large bore valve section (with Getzen’s legendary hand lapped, nickel plated, nickel-silver pistons) for an amazingly balance of a big sound and exceptional control!
Getzen Genesis Trumpets come standard in a premium wooden case with an external music pouch as well as the Getzen Platinum Lifetime Warranty.
