Used XO Brass 1600I Trumpet Roger Ingram. Roger Ingram on XO 1600I Trumpet. The trumpet is for sale as it is. It has some damaged on the bell that was repaired. But you can still see the marks left but this doesn’t effects the playing of the trumpet. It has a reverse lead pipe. An extra tuning slide included. It plays and sounds amazing. Small dings and a few scratches. Look at the photos and ask me if you have any questions. Today I’d like to talk to you about the 1600I Bb trumpet that I helped design with the XO Brass design team. When we developed this trumpet, the intent was to produce a horn that I felt would be the instrument of choice for any player, not just myself, and personally I think we did it. Features and Benefits of the XO 1600I Trumpet. One of the things I enjoy about this trumpet most is the bore size. 453 medium bore all the way through. It plays very consistently and I feel that’s one of the reasons why it slots so well. And because of the Bell diameter which is 4.8 inches and the rose brass lead pipe, it has such a nice smoky sound in the mid register when you want to play classical music, or if you want to play a nice ballad. The valve action is fantastic because the valves are made of stainless steel. And I love the way the horn has been trimmed with the nickel silver balusters. I couldn’t be happier with how these turned out. It comes with a great tweed case, a very handsome case. Included in the package, it comes with an elliptical tuning slide, which is my personal choice, and it also comes with a rounded tuning slide. And it comes with a standard set of finger buttons, or a thin set of finger buttons without the mother-of-pearl tops. And the bottom caps, you can get standard or heavyweight caps. And also, it comes with two sets of springs you can use – regular and light action valve springs. Now I prefer the metal valve guides, the standard bottom caps, the standard of valve buttons, and I like the regular springs. With the release of the 1600I B-flat trumpet, we introduced the XO Nova stabilizer, which when used help slotting above a high G. The 1600I B-flat trumpet has the best sound, the best pitch, and the best field of any trumpet I’ve ever played. I just love it! Check out how Roger talks about his 1600I trumpet in YouTube.
