Chuck Findley Trumpet by Van Laar

Van Laar Chuck Findley Trumpet in Bb- Gold Plate

We just received this beautiful new Van Laar Chuck Findley Trumpet in polished gold plate.

What an experience it is to play on this gorgeous instrument. The Chuck Findley Signature Model is a versatile instrument. When pushed it really sizzles, but back off and the sound will warm up and broaden.

Studying and understanding the acoustics behind the instrument and the mouthpiece only paints part of the picture. Each model represents hundreds of hours of analysis and interacting with players to find out what makes a particular mouthpiece “magical.”
