WE USE OVERSIZED COPPER SPRINGS FOR A SOLID AND SUPER FAST MOVEMENT. AS YOU CAN SEE BELOW. THE ONE ON THE LEFT IS WHAT THE REST OF THE OTHER TRUMPET MANUFACTURE USES. AS YOU CAN SEE THE ARROWS POINTING AT THE PORTS, WE HONE THE PORTS AND THEN POLISH THE PORTS. Port and polish work is a relatively simple process but tedious that I perform on the valves. First, the intake and/or exhaust inlets (ports) on the trumpet valve ports are enlarged using #0000stainless steel wool with a very high speed tool. This extra room helps the trumpet to draw extra air into and out of the cylinders, which means more power.
The enlargement of the inlets is what is referred to as porting. The next step I take, is polish work. The enlarged ports are then smoothed over using several grades of compounds. This removes flaws and/or obstructions from the surface of the ports, allowing air to flow more rapidly into and out of the cylinders.This process is called polishing just like a high performance motor' "port and polish". I HAVE ARROWS POINTING AT THE PORTS. (our spring on the right has a little slide grease on it, this is normal) please scroll all the way down to see more informal photos.

Annealing, in metallurgy and materials science, is a heat treatment that alters the physical and sometimes chemical properties of a material to increase its ductility and reduce its hardness, making it more workable.
It involves heating a material to above its recrystallization temperature, maintaining a suitable temperature, and then cooling.

THIS HORN DESIGN WILL SIMPLY SELL FOR OVER 3200.00 DOLLARS. THERE IS NO SECRET ON KEEPING THE COST DOWN. OUR BRASS IS NOT IMPORTED!
ITS MADE RIGHT HERE IN. AND WE DO NOT EMPLOY HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE.The size of the bell, which is also known as the flare, has a direct correlation to the type of sound produced. However, unlike the bore size where bigger means louder, the opposite actually applies to bell size.
For softer mellower sounds, a larger bell size will produce the desired tone. For a sharper, brighter sound a smaller bell size will do the job perfectly.Once you find the right combination of bell and bore sizes to match your playing needs, you will be well on your way to wowing audiences with your perfect tone.

We did have to handle the trumpet when we took these photo's; there will be a finger print on it somewhere. Plus we are building an LR gold plated de la Mardi II, THIS ONE BELOW IS OUR "DE LA MARDI GRAS 1". THE LEAD PIPE AND ITS FUNCTION.The lead pipe is the section of tubing that runs from the mouthpiece receiver past the valve casing to the first tuning slide (the first curve). It is usually around 8 inches in length.
The lead pipe tapers very gradually, starting slightly narrower at the mouthpiece end and increasing in diameter. The purpose of the taper of the lead pipe is to help with control of airflow and intonation (accuracy of pitch). The taper allows the trumpet player to have better control over the air as it is forced through the instrument. AS YOU'VE SEEN ABOVE; THE TRUMPET PISTONS ARE UNTOUCHED AND WILL NEED TO BREAK IN AND THE VALVES WILL CREATE THEIR OWN UNIQUE MARKINGS; PLUS THE VALVE STEMS ARE POLISHED ALUMINUM. STAINLESS STEEL is now the.
For professional instruments and contains 18% chrome and 8% nickel. At the La Grange facility, we've always used stainless and nothing else. Like the Monel it is a solid material so.
Plating flake is not a concern. And makes it preferable for. Of the overall brass tubing.Being a harder alloy it also allows for finer / tighter tolerances within the casing which in turn can improve intonation. It is worth pointing out though that wear on stainless steel (and Monel) valves doesnt show in the way it does on nickel plated valves. All valves wear to some degree. But there is obviously no plating to wear off on non-plated valves so wear is not always as obvious to the naked eye.
I would guess that if you took a poll of brass players and asked them to choose a material they felt would give them a hassle free playing experience the majority would choose stainless steel. MODEL: DE LA MARDI GRAS I. TECH SPECIFICATIONS: 18K GOLD PLATED.

Brass trumpet or instrument, you will probably see products described as having a "gold brass bell" or a "red brass lead pipe" but what difference does the brass alloy actually make? There is no doubt that the differences are subtle and for all but the most advanced players arguably irrelevant.
You need to be a competent player that produces a good basic tone on your instrument for any difference to be noticeable. Putting that aside though, if you are interested in finding out a bit more and I appreciate its not a particularly interesting topic! Then heres some basic guidance. Putting that aside though, if you are interested in finding out a bit more; then heres some basic guidance. Brass is used for manufacturing musical instruments as it is a malleable metal with excellent acoustic properties.
It is primarily made up of copper and zinc and the proportions in which these are used affects the type of brass alloy produced. Generally, the softer the material the softer warmer and darker the sound produced: harder metal gives a brighter and more responsive sound. There are generally 3 main types of brass alloy used in musical instrument manufacture today.The industry standard, if an instrument spec doesnt specify then you can fairly confidently assume its yellow brass. A very resonant alloy (70% copper) which produces a bright and direct tone that cuts through making it perfect for those trumpet fanfares. As the name implies, gold brass has a slightly darker color due to the higher copper content (85% copper) within the alloy. This gives the instrument a broader, fuller tone whilst still retaining a good level of projection. Red Brass 10% zinc 90% copper.
Also known as rose brass, this has the highest copper content at around 90% copper. It gives a warmer and mellower tone but doesnt project as well as alloys with higher zinc content as it is a softer metal. It is often used for the lead pipe (the main tube nearest to the mouthpiece) of student instruments as it helps to prevent red rot corrosion caused by the buildup of acidic dirt/saliva inside the tubing.
This is for another time. Where is a different brass alloy used?
Manufacturers vary in their choice with some using their same brass alloy for an entire instrument and others changing it for certain components. The main place for a different type of brass to be used is typically the Bell section as this has by far the most influence on the overall sound produced. The lead pipe of an instrument also occasionally has a different brass from the main body of the instrument. You will sometimes see other components manufactured in different materials, sometimes nickle silver is used on trombone slide legs or tuning slides and there are even instruments with sterling silver bells. Thats for discussion on another day though!There are many other factors that influence the sound of the instrument, from bore size and bell flair to the thickness of brass used. I hope this brief look at brass alloys though will help you understand that particular component of instrument manufacture. My grandfather wanted to build a professional level trumpet so the high school students and parents can afford and let this horn bring them into college and adulthood without spending thousands of dollars.
