This is the latest in Taylor's innovative designs. The angles and lugnut-like finger rings are just stunning! For the moment, it is one of only two productions of this model made. The first flew off our shelf within a few a weeks because, despite the angled bell crook and tuning slide, this instrument plays beautifully. It has a brilliant, focused tone that slots well and really makes it an all-purpose trumpet that is at home in an orchestra as much as a club.
