TP550 Intermediate Trumpet – Advancer

Designed with the advancing student in mind, the Jean Baptiste TP550 Advancer Intermediate Trumpet offers exceptional playability and tone with outstanding value.

The TP550 Advancer is a high-quality, hand-assembled trumpet with features that set it apart from other instruments of its class. The Advancer utilizes a 2-piece, 5” gold brass bell that is hand-hammered for a warm, ringing tone. Its standard .460” Medium Large bore attributes to the trumpet’s excellent response and playability. The Advancer also offers hand-fitted, stainless steel valves for precise slotting, superb compression and excellent intonation. It employs nickel silver outer slides, which allow for easy adjustments without fear of damaging these sensitive areas. The Advancer is equipped with a first valve thumb hook and third valve pinky ring to ensure quick and proper tuning at all ranges.

The Avancer is available in lacquer (TP550L) and silver-plated (TP550S) finishes for a striking look that complements its tone. Completing a package that offers best-in-class value and performance, the Advancer trumpet is outfitted with a deluxe case and a vintage-inspired 7C mouthpiece.
