Austin Winds Officially Presents our Latest Models

Austin Winds Currrent Stock

In addition to our popular Stage470LT, and in keeping with our philosophy of a "niche market" trumpet, we now offer the five additional models below:


The Balanced Ballad #1 Bb Trumpet

Our flagship model - The Balanced Ballad #1 is a complete redesign and is designed to complement our Stage 470LT. This horn, unlike our Stage 470LT, is not intended to be an all around trumpet. It is designed to be a mellow, very dark, fluid playing trumpet for intimate studio and small ensemble situations - perfect for the dark, smokey jazz clubs.

Specs are as follows:
- Heavy tube leadpipe design and mouthpiece receiver for high efficiency
- Braced tuning slide and bell bend with our balanced Tai Chi (Yin and Yang) design
- Extra large bell flair in red brass with a nice natural patina beneath the lacquer
- Large .466" bore
- Stainless steel pistons (harder to manufacture, but more durable than monel)
- Extra Heavy finger buttons, stems, top caps and bottom caps
- Improved amado style water keys (functionally superior to past designs)
- Extra Heavy finger rings
- Hand made in the U.K. to our specs

Starting at $3750
Austin Winds Ballad 466HT


The Balanced Ballad #2 Bb Trumpet

The Balanced Ballad #2 is modeled after the BB #1 but with a much more traditional bell flair. It is still a very dark sounding horn but is more suited to all around playing than the BB #1.

Specs are as follows:
- Heavy tube leadpipe design and mouthpiece receiver for high efficiency
- Braced tuning slide and bell bend with our balanced Tai Chi (Yin and Yang) design
- Large bell flair in red brass with brushed lacquer finish
- Large .466" bore
- Stainless steel pistons (harder to manufacture, but more durable than monel)

The Stage 466 Bb Trumpet

The Stage 466 is a free blowing, minimally braced trumpet with a consistant tone and feel throughout all registers and volumes. It is equally at home in a classical setting and a jazz/commercial setting. Unlike our Stage 470LT that has chameleon-like qualities depending on how hard it is pushed, our Stage 466 maintains its tone and playing characteristics throughout its range.

Specs are as follows:
- Heavy tube leadpipe design and mouthpiece receiver for high efficiency
- Minimal bracing
- Large bell flair in red brass with brushed lacquer finish
- Large .466" bore
- Stainless steel pistons (harder to manufacture, but more durable than monel)
- Extra Heavy finger buttons, stems, top caps and bottom caps
- Improved amado style water keys (functionally superior to past designs)
- Extra Heavy finger rings
- Hand made in the U.K. to our specs

The Concert 470LT Bb Trumpet

The Concert 470LT is a modification of our Stage 470LT design and is more suited to a classical musical setting.

- Minimal bracing
- Lightweight brass 72 style bell

- Hand-lapped monel pistons

The Stage 470LT Bb Trumpet

We set out to design a trumpet that matches the musical diversity found in Austin, TX and are very pleased with the result. We had in mind many characteristics that we wanted the horn to possess – many of them difficult at best to produce without having different models for different playing situations.  We are very proud to say that after several prototypes, we have succeeded in what we setout to do – create a horn that does many things extremely well without sacrifices.  Many dark sounding horns sound dull and many energetic horns sound too bright and shrill.  The "Austin " takes the best from both worlds, producing a dark tone with the high energy usually only associated with an “edgy” sound.

Specs are as follows:
- Heavy mouthpiece receiver for high efficiency
- Minimal bracing
- Lightweight large bell flair available in Brass, Bronze and Copper in brushed lacquer
- Large .470" bore
- Hand-lapped monel pistons
- Includes standard and medium weight bottom valve caps
- Includes standard and lightweight springs
- Optional heavy finger buttons, stems, top caps and bottom caps
- Removable 3rd valve end slide
- 1st and 3rd valve slide stops
- Hand made in the USA to our specs
