    IMG_0443.jpg IMG_0444.jpg IMG_0445.jpg PRICE $800. Beautiful Karrison KT 3 Professional Trumpet in Brass. ML .460 bore, very free blowing with exceptional slotting and intonation. Warm sound for orchestral work, but it can sizzle in the upper register!
    Carol bell 72
    Carol Brass valve block
    Heavy Bach leadpipe Taylor
    slideshow settings:
    --Bach Settings, rounded, prepared,
    Saturn water key
    Minor ding in the bell but otherwise perfect.

    Sorry for the pun; but this sounds all too much like a Carrion Trumpet...

    Just joking - don't take us here on TM too seriously when we're in a festive mood! And your name "Karrison", being a contraction of Carol Brass and Harrelson, ist just too near the word carrion, seeing the instrument is made up of body parts of other hooters... Some people here on TM use the term "Frankenhorn" (which is not derogatory, btw!

    Now everything is clear.
    tube consists of several manufacturers- Carol Brass, Taylor and Harrelson.
    but it sounds closer to Taylor and Harrelson
