All advantages at a glance

  • Less tiring
  • Expan­ded tonal range
  • Excel­lent response
  • Full sound even in the upper register
  • Cor­ro­si­on-free and con­sis­tent in quality
  • Less con­den­sa­ti­on build-up
  • Very mecha­ni­cal­ly sta­ble (does not dent)

Using less ener­gy to hand­le your instru­ment means that you have more left over for making music; you can play for lon­ger and be cer­tain of hit­ting your high notes.

Excellent response – superb sound

daCar­bo instru­ments pro­du­ce a warm, roun­ded tone across the ent­i­re ran­ge. They allow excel­lent arti­cu­la­ti­on and can be play­ed very easi­ly inde­ed, using litt­le ener­gy. Unli­ke in light instru­ments of con­ven­tio­nal brass, howe­ver, the tone does not fade away in the upper regis­ters and the sound can  be con­trol­led effort­less­ly. daCar­bo trumpets can play one who­le tone hig­her without extra effort on your part, allowing bet­ter per­for­mance and endu­ran­ce in concerts.

A warm material

The car­bon mate­ri­al feels plea­s­ant­ly warm to the touch, becau­se unli­ke brass it has very low heat con­duc­ti­vi­ty and does not take heat from your hand. The air column in the instru­ment beha­ves in simi­lar fashion, remai­ning almost at breath tem­pe­ra­tu­re regard­less of the ambi­ent tem­pe­ra­tu­re whe­re you play and regard­less of the instrument’s tem­pe­ra­tu­re. This redu­ces the need to re-tune after you have been play­ing for a while, and also redu­ces con­den­sa­ti­on build-up insi­de the instrument.

Barely any energy loss

By making wind instru­ments from car­bon fiber com­pounds, it beco­mes pos­si­ble to sup­press tho­se vibra­ti­ons in the tube that sim­ply was­te ener­gy. We can stif­fen the bore walls in selec­ted spots and in cer­tain direc­tions, or even make them com­pa­ra­tively sof­ter – an enor­mous gain in free­dom com­pa­red to the pos­si­bi­li­ties of tra­di­tio­nal mate­ri­als. It also beco­mes fea­si­ble to make cer­tain parts of the instru­ment more rigid without incre­a­sing mass or weight.

Instru­ment-makers, engi­neers, acoustic desi­gners and musi­ci­ans have worked tog­e­ther inten­si­ve­ly to deve­lop instru­ments which are remar­kab­ly easy to play yet pro­du­ce a warm and roun­ded tone.
