Recently there was a question on bass trumpets. Back then I did not have my Miraphone catalogue available. Now it is there.

Miraphone makes a 3 rotary valves version. Brass or gold brass. Lots of options in spring and leverage combinations.

Bell 7.88

Bore .480

Weight 1.8 Kg.

Looks good. My only question without having tried it would be about the missing 3rd slide trigger.

In the US Bach and Getzen make piston bass trumpets, the latter even in 2 quality levels.

I tried the Getzen 300 series bass trumpet many years ago. I was not too impressed. Playing it in tune was very hard.
