New Egger 3-Hole Trumpet

Designed in collaboration with Friedemann Immer

3-hole
Available in both Historic and Standard models with newly-designed Haas bell and a revolutionary conical crook design. The intonation and sound are the best ever. No hole crook and yard are also available. Delivery available in 10 to 14 days. Email us for ordering and pricing information.

Immer"This new model, a result of collaboration between Egger and I, fulfilled what I have hoped for. The thorny problem of intonation is considerably reduced, sometimes even eliminated! Thus we achieve a much better sound with more authenticity. Also, I treasure very much, having only one instrument to use as a hole-free natural trumpet in addition to the 3-hole model of Baroque trumpet, which I think is absolutely necessary.

eggerEgger Historical Trumpets are the most sought-after instruments in the period-instrument world. Egger trumpets are played in ensembles around the world including Apollo's Fire, Tafelmusik, Philharmonia Baroque, Clarino Consort, Washington Bach Consort, Folger Consort, Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Musica Antiqua Köln, and others.

Adolf Egger founded the company "Blechblas-Instrumentenbau Egger" in 1940. He built brass instruments in all sizes, from the trumpet to the tuba and made a respected name for himself in the Basel, Switzerland area.

As an apprentice in his father's shop, Rainer Egger was fascinated to learn about the way instruments function. Constantly looking for the "ideal" sound and optimal acoustic properties, he further developed the historical instruments with which his father had pioneered.

Today Rainer Egger heads a small team of exceptionally skilled employees, who are devoted to maintain the highest standards of quality. The experience with which Egger's instruments are made is based on countless experiments with various materials, bores, and construction methods. The collaboration with expert musicians and acousticians and the use of an acoustical measuring device allow him to continuously refine his instruments. All the knowledge thus obtained is also poured into the construction of piccolo and rotary-valved trumpets as well as bocals for modern, classical and baroque bassoons.
