New trumpet arrived

Nothing to do with inlet trumpets for the TR7's carburettors :-) But three months ago I ordered a new trumpet, to celebrate my silver jubilee as a civil servant. And last Friday I got a phone call from local musical instrument manufacturer Adams, to let me know that the trumpet was ready for collection. Time for a little fotoshoot ...








As you can see from the pictures the end result looks very nice, with some personal touches. But more important it also plays and sounds pretty good. But there is an issue that needs sorting within the next few days/weeks. Glad I have chosen a raw brass finish as some modification work might be necessary ...
