The natural/Baroque trumpet is being used increasingly across the globe for the performance of 17th-18th century music. BfB offers high-quality, affordable, user-friendly instruments to help trumpeters take the leap into the world of period performance. Learn to play a Baroque trumpet with the 4-hole system, or learn how to play the natural trumpet like Gottfried Reiche did (without vents).
What can BfB do for you?
