Model 4

S.E. Shires developed the Model 4F in conjunction with Thomas Rolfs, Principal Trumpet of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Inspired by the classic orchestral trumpets of the 1960s, this updated version boasts superior intonation and response. Its sound retains beauty and core from a remarkably present pp to a glorious ff.
