Custom E-flat / D Trumpets

Custom E-flat / D Trumpets

All S.E. Shires trumpets feature a one-piece, hand-hammered bell with a traditionally brazed seam, hand-lapped Monel pistons, and the careful assembly and handcrafted methods that the S.E. Shires Company proudly proclaims with its slogan, Quality without Compromise.

Shires E-flat trumpets feature several unique design elements that deliver intonation, facility, core, and projection to a degree unmatched by other tunable-bell trumpets. The availability of different interchangeable bell weights and treatments allows the player to assemble an instrument—or instruments—to meet musical demands ranging from the most delicate chamber music to the largest orchestral repertoire.

All of our E-Flat trumpets feature a medium-large, standard-weight valve cluster, fixed leadpipe, and tunable bell. An optional D bell and valve slides are available.
