These come in both brass and silver and have the valves manufactured, not with the cheap construction of monel metal, but with the unique Getzen valve assembly methods.
I have heard trumpet players tell me that the Getzen valves are “the fastest in the industry” what ever that means! It is certainly a comment I have heard on many occasions. Of course the regular lubrication with Getzen Valve Oil will provide lasting satisfaction.
As with the other instruments in the Getzen stable, the tuning slides are built with dissimilar metals. The use of Getzen Slide Lubricant will protect your trumpet throughout it's life time.
Getzen is the choice of top horn players way back from the “Doc Severenson” days. So many of the top players are using Getzen today.
