Andrew plays exclusively on B&S instruments
Versatility is the cornerstone of my career. Having the right gear for the job makes life much easier and the job much more fun.
B&S trumpets offer me the flexibility I need.
My Challenger II Bb and C trumpets both with standard lead pipes are the workhorses I rely on in the orchestra.
My beautiful gold Elaboration has an ultra responsive lightweight bell, giving the sizzle and edge I need for lead trumpet work in the Big Band.
The latest edition to my stable is my beloved Exquisite Bb with a slightly smaller bore and lightweight bell. This is superb for recording or close mic'd theatre work.
My two Eb trumpets compliment each other perfectly; one a medium bore Eb and the other a large bore 4 valved Eb trumpet with a super heavy bell whose sound could easily be mistaken for a Bb. This is a great instrument for quintet and 10 piece work - I love it!
My piccolo is a large bore, heavier weight than most with the most glorious sound; pure gold (not literally!).
