Baroque-Natural-Trumpets

In order to come as close as possible to the sound of historical instruments, we make our replicas according to traditional methods. The use of these methods produces instruments acoustically closer to original instruments, especially where tone colour is concerned.

Pitch notations refer to a´= 440 Hz. Baroque repertoire is normally performed by period instrument ensembles at a´= 415 Hz.
