The perfect combination of strong durable materials and delicate precise craftmanship make the TR711 an instrument that will withstand the rigors beginning band programs and still maintain a sound in keeping with the Bach reputation. Combining a 0.459 medium-large bore with a red brass leadpipe, Selmer has made the Prelude trumpet a free blowing horn that allows the player to move between registers seamlessly.
