Overview

The S.E. Shires Model 401 trumpet is the latest version of its original signature C trumpet. It features a uniquely balanced heavyweight 4 bell taper, which combines a big, powerful sound with easy response. The bell of the 401 differs from the 4F in that it is bent slightly shorter resulting in a different Z-brace placement. For some players, this can solidify the feel and can quicken response. Matched with the open 401 leadpipe and the centered and projecting WF tuning slide, it produces an ideal balance of breadth, clarity, depth and projection. Yellow-brass balusters add warmth to the sound while nickel-silver valve caps add brilliance, character, increase the core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack. The Model 401 is an incredible orchestral C trumpet.
