Taylor Brass Instruments Variety
The company offers a great variety of trumpet and flugelhorn models. Among them, musicians can find the instrument that matches their artistic needs.
Such a trumpet model like Piranha, known as one of today’s most versatile trumpets, will satisfy seekers of wide dynamic range, light construction and huge sound.
Chicago models feature a few trumpets, each with its own advantages. Custom models allow brass players to experience more volume and sound with less effort. A bit lighter Standard trumpets are easier to play, with a wise weight distribution and more power and dynamic range than Lite models.
Lite trumpets, considered a good option for jazz bands and ensembles, can boast of even transmission of energy along the full length of the receiver and leadpipe. VR trumpets are aimed at musicians with a more traditional classical approach, and they can act like perfect lead horns.
Taylor also creates Hybrids for those musicians who would like to renew or customize their instruments to give them a new life or push the artistic boundaries. The company can change some parts of instruments such as a leadpipe, bell, main tuning slide assembly. The Hybrids may also include incorporation of custom cap set or inlaid finger buttons into the original trumpet construction.
Taylor is also known for their compact trumpets Pocket Pro 2, able to provide comfortable playing with clear sound projection in noisy settings. These trumpets do a stunning job for musicians from street and party bands with much noise all around them.
As for flugelhorns, musicians can try Phat Boy model featuring a combination of old-school creamy sound and a good dynamic with quick response.
The Phat Puppy flugelhorn models boast of much easier playing compared to regular flugelhorn models and very compact dimensions, not taking too much space in a musician’s bag.
Customers can also buy the instrument that take the in-between position between the trumpet and flugelhorn – the Ballad Horn, able to act like both of them, depending on the musician’s performance.
