    XO 1624S C Trumpet

    The 1624 features a .462" bore, yellow brass body with a specially designed, 4.8" handcrafted B5 bell. This fine instrument has been developed to enhance the artist's playability of any musical genre including symphonic and orchestral compositions. The elliptical bell crook design offers increased air column stability while maximizing tonal center and sonic brilliance. Both standard (1624s) and reverse (1624s-r) leadpipe configurations are available to ensure the desired response for the individual performer. A choice of yellow brass or rose brass bell is available to further customize your sound. A professional two-piece valve casing with nickel silver balusters offers superior alignment for the precision-lapped Monel pistons. Options include pearl inlaid or metal finger buttons, regular or light action springs, and standard or heavy weight bottom valve caps. Both elliptical and rounded tuning slides are included to complete this incredibly versatile trumpet.

    A 24K gold trim set is available that includes gold-plated finger buttons as well as gold-plated top and bottom valve caps. A distinctive TourliteĀ® padded case is standard.

    What is a B5 bell? Are there B1-B4's, maybe a B6 and up? The body is yellow brass, but what about the slides? Who did you have do the beta-testing? We are a trumpet forum and hungry for more than just craigslist ebay advertising spiels. We want to know why a particular horn is great.

    "B & #" refers to the relative bell size to the bore of the horn. The B5 would be a large bore bell matched to the .462" bore of the horn. Likewise, the XO 1602 in Bb has a B4 medium-large bore bell matched to the .459" medium-large bore of the horn, while the 1600i (Ingram model) has a B1 bell matched to a .453" bore. Inner slides are polished yellow brass.

    KHS, the parent company of Jupiter, uses input from its artists in the design of instruments. The members of Boston Brass have had input as has Roger Ingram, and noted tuba artist, Pat Sheridan, has helped design low brass. KHS also employs many former UMI (United Musical Instruments) workers following the merger of UMI with Selmer-Bach circa 2006.

    The XO line is a premium line with a lower price point than its competitors even with added options that allow the trumpeter to customize his/her experience. The real why to a horn's greatness is best measured by trying the horn - REALLY trying it. If the horn captures your musical voice, it is a great horn for you. For informational purposes, please see this video by Boston Brass: Boston Brass presents XO Brass - YouTube

    The advertising placed here was not of Craig's List caliber; rather, it was actually provided by XO Brass themselves, and can be found on their website: XO: Professional by Design
