With my Eclipse I finally have a trumpet that really deliveres the sound I hear in my head! Not that I didn't like my sound on other good trumpets, but the Eclipse has a special, centered and focused sound that I was missing before. It gives me a wonderfully warm and fat sound in the low register and will peel the paint off the walls when you drive it up high! Never, at any volume will the sound spread or loose its center. The response is unmatched! The search for the "perfect" trumpet has come to an end for me!
If you are able to come by Leigh's workshop, he will stop at nothing to fix you up with a trumpet that is right for you! He doesn't only believe in building very high quality instruments, but also in making sure you are 100% satisfied with the trumpet in your hands! With the interchangable lead pipe system you are able to set up the trumpet with exactly the kind of resistance that is right for you. You know, when you try a horn and you like the way it sounds, but it feels not quite right in terms of the way the air moves through the horn, with a different size lead pipe, you will be able to reduce or increase the resistance of the horn and make it feel right! The fact that more and more pro players are playing Eclipse trumpets, flugelhorns, cornets and piccolos just speaks for itself!
