Benchmark Bells

Quality You Can Rely On

🎵 Bells: Our Bb models come with three distinct bell shapes, each designed to offer a unique tonal experience:    
1.    The number one taper features a modified Bessel horn shape, providing flexibility for various mouthpieces and playing styles. It can deliver a dark, mellow tone or bright, vibrant notes depending on your preferences.    
2.    The number two bell boasts a simple Bessel horn shape, a classic choice known for its solid intonation and response in various settings.    
3.    The number three bell, with a larger throat, offers a darker tonal option while maintaining tonal centers and expected intonational response.
The bell taper for the Eb/D trumpet is carefully matched to the bore size and leadpipe taper, ensuring even results on both sides of the instrument. We understand the challenges posed by combination trumpets, and we've taken the time to balance these issues with the bell and leadpipe used on this trumpet.
Our Fusion Bb bell is massive, producing a hybrid blend of flugelhorn and cornet sounds.
For piccolo trumpets, we offer three bell shapes, each catering to different tonal preferences, from standard to warmer sounds with maintained intonation and a Bessel horn shape for even playability across the instrument's range.
