Harrelson X-series #2 "Double Inversion"
Our new X-series trumpets give you the opportunity to own truly innovative instruments that are sure to become very collectible. Built with the same high quality components as our VPS Summit and Muse series, each X-horn is a true prototype designed to test a new idea, design or material. Jason will be building a total of 100 X-series trumpets, which will be featured in a full color photo book complete with descriptions, build photos and details on each design. In addition, our YouTube channel will be featuring many of these horns as they are being designed and built. Own a unique piece of history that rivals the best trumpets of yesterday and today.
"Double Inversion" X2 is an experiment in wrapping tubing to physically change how and where we hear the sound project from the entire instrument and bell. Designed with a downstream leadpipe, this horn answers questions related to hand and embouchure position as well as how individuals react to anti-nodal vibration as it relates to the location of various tubing bends.
