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
