Trumpets

Our range of hand-crafted, professional trumpets 

Bb TRUMPETS

The first Eclipse Bb trumpet models were finished in 2003. Over the next 16 years we re-developed the range into what we have today. During this period we have had the pleasure of working with Noel Langley, Ruud Breuls, Mark Upton and Larry Meregillano among many others. Designed with players for players. With excellent tuning and build quality, Eclipse offer models and bell types that cover all styles of trumpet playing.

ENIGMA

The Eclipse Enigma has been developed as a traditionally tuned Bb trumpet with a reverse tuning slide. The Enigma offers superb intonation and feel, as well as all new bells to offer greater flexibility to our customers. It is available with all of our bell, water key, lead pipe and finish options. You will find that a lot more of your energy passes through the instrument rather than into it, creating a pure blow with greater projection – without the extra effort.

I have worked with many players over the years with the development of the Eclipse Bb trumpet range, but the involvement of Noel Langley in our early days gave us a fantastic player and test pilot who certainly helped to save us many hundreds of hours in development. 13 years later Noel is still here with us and as passionate as ever about the company and it’s products.

C TRUMPETS

When developing the Eclipse C trumpet the biggest "want" from the players feedback was to build a C trumpet that had great tuning, but more importantly it should feel very similar to playing a Bb trumpet. Therefore switching between the two instruments was not such a change in approach. Our C trumpet does this very well, while keeping all the response and cut you would expect from a great C trumpet.

Designed in conjunction with many of the UKs top orchestral players, the new Eclipse C Trumpet is now available and includes any of our standard finish options.
Bore: .460"
Leadpipe: Fixed
