Rotary Valve Open Wrap
The XO 1236 provides players with a superb response and sound that can be sculpted to perfection in any register. Its rich, commanding tone immediately establishes a link between the player and the audience, or rounds out the harmonious depth of a professional ensemble.
Reverse Main Tuning Slide
The design of the reverse main tuning slide reduces resistance and provides a free-blowing experience.
The two-piece bell ensures consistent thickness with controlled resonance.
The interchangeable leadpipes allow players to personalize their playing experience. We offer three different leadpipes:
-Yellow brass, length 200 mm: Our standard leadpipe, less resistance for players that prefer an open, free-blowing feel
-Yellow brass, length 230 mm: Provides that little extra resistance for better slotting and articulation
-Sterling silver, length 200 mm: Same dimensions as our standard leadpipe, offers solid fundamentals and a clear attack.
Removable Counterweight System
The XO three-pieces-balance-counterweight system can be installed or removed with a threaded cap easily. It allows the performers to balance their instruments and offers a better playing experience. The performers can decide whether to use the counterweight system depending on their personal preferences.
