    Has anyone ever changed leadpipes on a Callet C Trumpet?
    If so, what leadpipe did you use?
    THANKS!

    I know of some New York Callet C trumpets that were converted to the Callet Symphonique leadpipe and all were happy and considered it an improvement.

    Years ago Gene Pilckzuk and I tried to match his accusonic leadpipe to a Callet Symphonique C trumpet and a Callet Jazz Bb.
    He was amazed as much as I that neither horn showed any significant improvement with the 3 versions of the accusonic pipes he made for the Callets clamped onto the Bb or the C trumpet.

    My speculation is that the revolutionary expandabore design to a great degree simulates the same concept of the accusonic leadpipes being that the accusonics have graduated and expanding chambers thru most of the length of the pipe.
