WOW.... so... i hear often from you guys out there something like this... i'm saving up... one of these days i'll be able to afford one... or... when i win the lottery... etc.... excuses, excuses, excuses.... well... now it's never been easier to get into a Harrelson Trumpet. we believe in our instruments... and we want you to have one too. so... we're offering a trade sale this summer that truly is an amazing deal. we will give you top dollar for your trumpet or trumpets... do you have instruments sitting in the closet that you NEVER play... you know who you are... or... do you currently play an instrument you've been wanting to upgrade but just haven't taken the time to sell it on ebay or don't know where to sell it or how to sell it... well... WE DO. we do it all the time. and because so many people know and trust our name... it's easier for us than it is for you. here's where you win on that... so... you say... jen, i don't have any money to put down on my dream horn. well... in most cases... all you have to do is send us your trade in trumpet and we will put you on the order list. you don't have to give us a dime until your trumpet is ready to ship...(our current wait time is around 4 months) and depending on what you order you might not owe much at all. THIS IS SO EXCITING to soooo many people. or... if you're in college or a world famous trumpet star and you only have one trumpet and there is no way you can part with it for any amount of time... then as long as you pay $500 as a deposit... we will put you on the list and complete your order and you won't have to ship us your trumpet (trade trumpet) until you receive your brand new Harrelson in the mail.... that sounds like a pretty awesome deal to me.... we also offer great trade in value on trim kits, mouthpieces etc...

Harrelson Bravura "S" Release and Meet & Greet with Jason Harrelson & Trent Austin @ Austin Custom Brass- Tuesday, June 12th @ 4pm- Free and Open to the Public! Austin Custom Brass is located at 187 Salem Street, Malden MA 02148
look at these sleek receivers finishing up on the mill late last night!
making progress on the release of the Bravura "S" ... more photos tomorrow but I wanted to share these ASAP.
I am excited to announce the release of the new Harrelson Bravura "S" Model later this week. This has been months of prototyping in the making but is finally ready to release... we are anticipating as early as Wednesday. The Bravura "S" has been designed to compete with Bach and Yamaha Trumpets in the same price bracket but at the same time deliver a higher level of craftsmanship and playability. The new Bravura "S" Trumpet will essentially be a lighter version of the Bravura except the configurations are a set selected specifically by Jason for these instruments and is a fixed combination. The Bravura "S" will feature Leadpipe 10 and Bell 9. Harrelson Water Keys and custom Bravura "S" receiver as pictured in the CAD drawing below. Also featured will be special "S" cutout finger rings and top bracing. You will still have the option of choosing your finger button inlays. This design has been in development for the past 9 months. There have been several prototypes along the way and I have included a few photos of the earlier prototypes below as well. This instrument is priced at $2995.... less than many Bachs and Yamahas. It will be available in Brushed Raw Brass or Brushed Brass Lacquer or Brushed Silver. These are the instruments we will begin offering in music stores. Something we have done very minimally in the last year. Currently we only sell our instruments in Schmitt Music Stores in Brooklyn Center, MN.
Here are a few videos of the Bravura "S" Prototype designs that have led up to the final "S" to be released later this week.... http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA55885C50652F59D
Keep an eye on my blog and on our facebook page for more information later this week!
