  • “L”  Long tapered pipe great for C trumpet. More resistant than the “O” pipe Great for Orchestral work as well as solo and chamber settings.

  • “OT” Somewhere between the “O” and the “L” more ope than the “L” great for C or Bb trumpet

  • “N” designed specifically for the New York Narrow tuning slide. Works well on Bb or dense Brilliant core. Free blowing with excellent slotting

  • “5” similar to a Bach 25 taper good all around taper. Best for Bb also available in a reversed stye for the Bb trumpet.
