Phaeton PHT FX-1100 Trumpet

The PHT FX-1100 was designed to achieve excellent balance, brilliance, articulation, tonal focus, and control. Phaeton’s patented multiple bracing system adds a dynamic dimension for personal fine tuning. The trumpet offers an exclusive innovation which includes three sets of interchangeable vertical braces machined from solid Bronze, Stainless Steel and  Brass. Rifle-drilled ports in both horizontal Phaeton style braces reduce weight while adding essential response in all registers.

The new solid brass “one piece” heavy mouthpiece receiver adds a new dimension of control and sustain. The trumpet includes a new large bore fast taper lead pipe which offers more dynamics.
