Double Bell Trumpet
doublebell_2.jpg

The Double Bell Trumpet uses the standard three valves, plus a fourth and fifth valve. The fourth valve is uded to play quarter-tones, fast and over the whole range of the trumpet. The fifth valve is for changing between the two bells, it gives many extra possibilities:

  • the double bell makes very fast changing between an open- and muted trumpet easy (colour-change and echo-effect). This effect suggests the existence of a second trumpet......
  • the 5th valve can make a gradual change between open and muted, a large scale of exciting colours arises....
  • changing between two open bells gives a tremolo effect, possible on any note in the register
  • you can play a regular piece with two different trumpets! because the bells are made of slightly different material
  • sitting in an orchestra or ensemble you can change your direction of playing just by using the fifth valve; use the \"bells up\"-effect without changing your sitting-possition.
