Blessing Pro Bb!
The Blessing BTR-1580 Series Bb Trumpet offers a new design to the All-American offering of Blessing. The BTR-1580 series features a .460-inch bore combined with a new pro series leadpipe and tuning slide design for superior note slotting and intonation. The 1580 also features a new one-piece hand-hammered commercial bell for excellent response and projection. The BTR-1580 also features a new pro series valve design with hand lapped Monel pistons. The Blessing BTR-1580 Series Bb Trumpet includes a Blessing 7C mouthpiece and deluxe wood case and is available in lacquer (BTR-1580), vintage raw (BTR-1580V) silver (BTR-1580S) or silver with gold plated trim (BTR-1580G) finish.
The 1580 ranks as Blessings highest achievement thus far on the path to extraordinary pro brass design and performance. The free blowing nature yet tightly slotted and centered intonation deliver vibrations to the one piece hand hammered bell that creates a commercial tone one would only expect from on instrument selling for 2 to 3 times the price. Simply stated, there is no professional trumpet made today that compares to the value delivered by the Blessing BTR-1580.

Returning back to trumpet playing with a view of playing semi-professionally. Not really having the funds to fork out top dollar for a professional instrument I ordered a Blessing BTR1580S (Silver) in Nov 10 from WW&BW for Delivery to Australia. Firstly I would like to say WW&BW international Service, together with their international partners Fity0ne, was excellant. I was fortunate though as after I ordered, Blessing instruments were restricted for international delivery, albeit there is a supplier in Australia. Note I ordered from WW&BW as I couldn't get a response from my queries with the Australian Distributor. The BTR1580 is what Blessing states it is, a professional horn at an affordable price. The slides and valves are effortless, the tone of the trumpet is impeccable. The trumpet comes with a standard Blessing 7C mouthpiece and although this mouth piece was fine, my current personal prefence is playing with a Blessing 1.5c mouthpiece, which allows me to play above the stave with ease. This horn is not a wannabe, it is a true horn at a price it is certainly affordable and equivelant horns from other suppliers would probably cost double? But then Blessing are wishing to re-establish their instruments and marketplace, hence the price. In my view if you are looking to upgrade from a student horn to an intermediate horn, at the current price go straight to the BTR-1580 cut out the middle man. If you are looking for your 1st prohorn or 2nd instrument don't look any further then the BTR 1580. it is excellant. The case is also solid and well presented, with good attention to reinforcing external areas, as well as an extra protective layer to protect the trumpet further, when the case is open or closed. although basic traditional case style. For the price the package the quality I rate this trumpet five stars....Its a Blessing..(-:) Anthony Darwin, Australia
