Balanced Ballad 1 Patina

Balanced Ballad 1 Patina

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.
