In 1962, the Getzen Company set the trumpet world abuzz with the introduction of the first 900 Eterna trumpet. In 2001, after decades of design changes, that legendary trumpet was returned in the form of the 900 Eterna Classic. Then in 2004, the Eterna line was enhanced yet again with the introduction of the 900SB Eterna Sterling trumpet. Now the historic Eterna trumpet line is being expanded further with the exciting addition of the 907S Eterna Proteus Bb trumpet.
So what is the Proteus? Just like the name implies, its a versatile, all around trumpet. After nearly fifty years at the top of the Eterna line, the 900 Classic doesnt meet the needs of some of todays players. Many are seeking a more centered, flexible trumpet rather than the bright, lead style of the Eterna Classic. That is exactly what the Proteus was designed to deliver.
Design aspects such as the heat treated, two piece, #137 yellow brass bell and custom gold brass mouthpipe combine to make the Proteus better suited for chamber and orchestral work than its well known predecessor. Meanwhile, standard features like bright silver plate, fixed third slide ring, and lever waterkeys establish the Proteus as an outstanding value. A true upper level trumpet at a mid-grade price.
Silver plated finish, .460 bore, custom gold brass mouthpipe, nickel silver slides, #137 two piece yellow brass with special heat treated bell, first valve saddle, adjustable third slide ring. Supplied with hardshell wooden case. Getzen Gold warranty.
