The S.E. Shires Model CLW trumpet provides the ultimate combination of the sound of the best lightweight classic instruments with modern centering and intonation. The broadest S.E. Shires trumpet bell taper helps it to produce an unusually wide variety of tone colors for a lightweight trumpet—but it can also cut and sizzle.
The focus of the Z leadpipe helps it to play easily at any dynamic, in any register. Yellow-brass balusters and lightweight yellow brass valve caps add depth and immediacy to the sound.

S.E. Shires Co. began building trumpets several years ago at the personal request of Doc Severinsen. Still the horn that Doc loves most, our B♭trumpets have since also become a favorite among top players in all genres—from lead and commercial players to classical soloists, chamber musicians, and members of some of the world’s leading bands and orchestras. Our standard model B♭trumpets are available in .459-inch bore. Our newest commercial line of trumpets offers medium bore (.454), large bore (.462), and extra-large bore (.465) options.
