XO 1600IL Trumpet Overview
Developed in collaboration with Roger Ingram, the XO 1600IL trumpet meets the world-famous musician's requirements regarding a professional trumpet. With a vibrant and focused sound, it was designed for a lead trumpet players in search of perfect sound projection and effortless intonation.
The .453 inch medium bore helps slotting across the whole range of the Trumpet. The balance of bell size (4.8 inch) and lead pipe design helps give the instrument a flexibility across all dynamics.
