42 Artist Series Professional Bb & C Trumpet
The 42 Artist Series Professional Bb & C Trumpets project a clear, pure tone with precise intonation. Two tuning slides (round, semi-round) give the player a variety of sounds and feels. These Arist Series trumpets also offer superior response and effortless playing. Available in Bb and C.


One-Piece Hand Hammered bell
Our 42 Artist bell contributes to a vibrant sound, with a strong core.

Two Tuning Slides
The 42 Artist Series Professional Trumpet comes with two tuning slides. One semi-round for ease of slotting and a strong core, one full-round for less resistance and more zing.

Monel Pistons
Cannonball trumpets feature monel piston valves. Monel is a malleable metal alloy that ensures smooth and long lasting action. The metal re-arranges its shape with every stroke to insure a proper, tight fit and alignment with its casing. Monel resists pitting and corrosion so you won't have to have your valves re-plated. The metal also retains the valve oil longer than other leading materials.

.460 Bore
Our 42 Artist Series bore contributes to a resonant and strong core with wonderful brilliance whend desired.

Acoustically Customized and Adjusted by a Professional

The most important thing that sets Cannonball apart is the acoustical customizing that we do to every instrument. Specially trained and talented acoustical adjusters work on each trumpet, adjusting the bore, air flow, and more until they are satisfied that each horn has an open feel, effortless slotting, and a focused and resonant tone. When you pick up a Cannonball trumpet, we want you to enjoy it as much as our acoustical technicians do - we want you to say, "I can't put this horn down!"
