By tuning the trumpet from the bell, the instrument offers an improved feel and superior intonation. In general, the playing characteristics of this instrument will be more open or "free" feeling mainly in the upper register. Because the tuning bell design offers less bell bracing, the general response of the instrument feels quicker. By removing the standard "S" brace on the front section of the bell, the instrument resonates or "rings", which improves projection. With the lack of fixed bracing, the tuning bell design is fragile and caution should be used when carrying a tuning bell trumpet in a soft case.
