A new material complements the traditional materials for trumpets: carbon. Werner Spiri, together with Dr. Andreas Keller, material scientist, develops the first trumpet worldwide made of this modern material. It is called daCarbo. Carbon suppresses the energy-consuming wall vibrations in wind instruments. This enables a fine responsiveness and a large freedom of articulation and generates a warm, full tone. Leadpipe, tuning slides and bell can be selected individually. “Vario” players have the opportunity to expand the spectrum of their instrument at a low cost.
