Handmade trumpets from a Swiss quality workshop

Sound, response and design beyond compare

vario trompete gold
A trumpet is made of some 130 parts. At the Spiri workshop not a single detail is left to chance. 
Spiri and his team members build each element with great care. The joints are soldered in tin or silver, the materials conformed perfectly to wall thickness. Spiri also makes its own silver, gold, an lacquer finishings in-house as the last phase of the work has such strong effect on the trumpet's sound.

The Spiri craftsmen work the raw brass and pipes into an extraordinary instrument with a pure and heavenly sound: a masterpiece of devotion and precision.

The fabrication of a trumpet requires meticulous handcraft. Various of the 130 small components are manually reworked. During a complex process the original straight bell is bent in the right shape. Every piping component on the instrument is sanded, in order to guarantee an immaculate surface.

The valves of a trumpet are the most sensitive area in the built of wind instruments and require very high precision. The valves get the necessary lightness and accuracy through the final honing (sanding to improve measure and form accuracy as well as surface treatment). The valves for all Spiri Vario trumpets are fabricated in our manufactory in Winterthur.

At the end an engraving gives the instrument its uniqueness: all Spiri trumpets receive an own number.
Spiri's Vario Trumpet is the only on of its kind in the world.
An extensive range of leadpipes, tuning slides and bells offers every possible combination with the perinet valves. The threaded plug connections are hight-precision and easy to handle. The instrument can therfore be individually assembled to fit any sound world one may desire.
