CarolBrass Baro Model Trumpet – Original Specification

The CarolBrass Baro Model Trumpet (CTR-5280L-GLT(D)-Bb Euro Bell) is an artist model produced for Cuban/Canadian trumpeter Alexis Baro. Based on the original Euro Bell design (CTR-5280L-GLT(D)-Bb-L) it features CarolBrass’ curved “Euro Bell” design which offers excellent projection.

Medium-large bore with large throat, light weight, gold brass bell and twin tube leadpipe, the Baro model has a heavy mouthpiece receiver and heavy top and bottom valve caps. The bell is finished in black nickel and the body is raw brass. All 5xxx trumpets are supplied with two main tuning slides – one square (traditional feel) and one rounded (for less resistance).

The original finish as pictured is no longer available, this trumpet may now be ordered in satin lacquer or Balckhawk only.

The Carol Brass EuroBell “Baro Model” is, if not the best, one of the most complete horns I’ve played , the original EuroBell model its a great horn at every level , from the design to the technical specs… with a few modifications, we took the original to another sound dimension and level , with the “Baro Model “ we have achieved a wider tonal range , perfect for players that navigate in a variety of musical environments from Pop to Jazz to Latin … this horn has the capability of opening up with a bright tone in the higher register as well as to mellow down in the middle and opening to a wide bottom range… as a multi style player, the response of the instrument and the tone quality in every musical environment I play is the most important aspect I look for in a Horn… I believe the Carol Brass EuroBell “Baro Model” has everything a professional can ask for in a Trumpet, from style to sound to response , allowing the player to develop itself from within…!! – Alexis Baro
