789RL Professional Trumpet
With its reverse leadpipe design, medium-large bore, and even bigger Big Bell design (5.25" bell diameter), the 789RL "Bavarian Lion" is a free-blowing dream giving you the potential to roar while maintaining a quality of sound ideal for both leading or filling out a section.


Bigger Big Bell Design
Our Bigger Big Bell® and unique bell flare contribute to a vibrant sound and less resistance.

The Reverse Lead Pipe
The reverse leadpipe creates less resistance and a more free-blowing feel.

Monel Pistons
Cannonball trumpets feature monel piston valves. Monel is a malleable metal alloy that ensures smooth and long lasting action. The metal re-arranges its shape with every stroke to insure a proper, tight fit and alignment with its casing. Monel resists pitting and corrosion so you won't have to have your valves re-plated. The metal also retains the valve oil longer than other leading materials.

Medium-Large Bore
We searched for the perfect bore size to facilitate a great air column. Even though the bore is technically Medium-Large, there are variations in the tube diameter across the instrument which create a comfortable degree of resistance as well as aligning pitch for great slotting.

Each trumpet comes equipped with a professional mouthpiece, mouthpiece brush, cleaning-snake, valve oil, cleaning cloth, slide grease, and a professional, hard-shell case.

Acoustically Customized and Adjusted by a Professional

The most important thing that sets Cannonball apart is the acoustical customizing that we do to every instrument. Specially trained and talented acoustical adjusters work on each trumpet, adjusting the bore, air flow, and more until they are satisfied that each horn has an open feel, effortless slotting, and a focused and resonant tone. When you pick up a Cannonball trumpet, we want you to enjoy it as much as our acoustical technicians do - we want you to say, "I can't put this horn down!"
