What about the tuning slides you ask?

Please make a note that this only applies to the Bb Wild Thing Trumpet…..

NOW! there are 8 tuning slides!

The Eight different tuning slides available for Bb Wild Thing Trumpet really makes it 8 different trumpets all in one !

Standard Slides with the brace……

From smallest to largest they are:

#2 (smallest or tightest, conical bore) .460 bore top leg of the tuning slide, .464 bore in the tuning slide bow, .470 bore bottom leg of the tuning slide that enters the horn. Great for Symphonic Playing.

#3 (larger) .464 bore top leg of the tuning slide, .464 bore in the tuning slide bow, .470 bore bottom leg of the tuning slide that enters the horn. This Slide gets a more Brilliant or ‘Glorious’ sound for Orchestral or Symphonic Playing.

#4 (larger then #2+#3) .464 bore top leg of the tuning slide, .470 bore in the tuning slide bow, .470 bore bottom let. Big open but somewhat warmer than the #1 slide.

#1 (Largest, most open cylindrical bore) .470 bore top leg of the tuning slide, .470 bore in the tuning slide bow, .470 bore bottom leg of the tuning slide that enters the horn. Most open blow, and biggest boldest sound of all, big feel, brighter sound.

The Bb Wild Thing Trumpet will still be sold as before with the #1 and # 2 as stock items. The #3 and #4 slides will be sold as options.

Most players start out by playing the #2 slide when they first get the horn. When they want a more open sound and feel”, they play the #1 . The #1 slide is what I always play, and this is what consider the horn to be. If the players find that the #2 is too small , and the 1 is too open ( big), well then they have the option of the # 3 or the #4 slides…

It’s whatever the player wants.
