Blessing Unveils the New BTR-1460M Trumpet

Posted on May 16, 2018

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – E.K. Blessing is thrilled to introduce the addition of the brand new BTR-1460M trumpet to it’s lineup of fine brass instruments. The BTR-1460M features a new Matte finish, a unique feature for instruments of this price point. The BTR-1460M is set to debut at Winter NAMM 2018 in Anaheim, California.

“With the BTR-1460M we wanted to offer younger players something that looked very professional,” says Phil Baughman, Brand Manager at E.K. Blessing.  “By achieving a matte scratch brush finish and maintaining both the affordability and great sound of our 1460 I think we have accomplished something younger players are going to love!”  

The BTR-1460M stands out with its unique, distressed finish, achieved by hand to give each instrument a distinct look.  The trumpet features a 460” ML bore, 5” Bell Diameter, Rose Brass Lead Pipe, Yellow Brass Body and Two-piece bell, Nickel Silver Outer Slides and Monel Valves.  It’s a perfect companion to the 1541 Flugelhorn in both look and completing a player’s spectrum of tones.

Baughman continues, “Another advantage to a durable, lacuqered finish such as the Matte scratch brush finish is that it doesn’t require as much maintenance and polish.  A student can focus on practice and far less on the upkeep of their instrument, which is where their attentions should be.”
