The S.E. Shires Model CMW Bb Trumpet provides the ultimate combination of the sound of the best classic instruments with modern centering and intonation. The broadest S.E. Shires trumpet bell taper helps it to produce a wide variety of tone colors easily throughout the range of the instrument, with a more centered sound and a little less edge and brilliance than its lightweight counterpart.
The W05leadpipe and XD (X dual bore) tuning slide give it unparalleled warmth and flexibility.

S.E. Shires Custom Series Trumpets
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.
