Harrelson Trumpets are the most efficient ever created. Higher efficiency means more power, range, endurance, playability, dynamics and sound. Experience Harrelson SWE Technology with the Bravura Trumpet. Designed to be superior to professional factory trumpets the Bravura is noticeably easier to play with excellent response, attacks, slotting, flexibility, range and endurance.

This was a recent trade up for one of our clients. We had already planned to take this horn in as partial payment on another Harrelson Trumpet. Just before this instrument was scheduled to come into the shop, our client was playing it on a gig in Florida when a trombone player kicked it off the stage. The bell was damaged but we honored the trade anyway. We replaced the bell and re-brushed the raw brass finish. It was given a full inspection and cleaning and is in perfect working AND cosmetic condition.
This trumpet is in the shop and ready to ship TODAY! Or, stop by our booth at the ITG Conference and pick it up in person.
NOTES FROM JASON: This Bravura plays medium open much like the feel of a good Bach, but with increased efficiency. This bell is our newest addition to our already wide array of tapers offering a big broad tone with a 5-1/8" diameter. Lip slurs from pedal c through double high c feel smooth and lock in easily at all dynamics. I will be recording a video playing this trumpet tomorrow and will have Jen post it on YouTube. This horn is in IMMACULATE CONDITION! As always, call or email with your questions. This is your chance to own a handmade Bravura for less without the wait. -Jason Harrelson

How is improved efficiency possible?Jason Harrelson has revitalized the research and development of trumpet physics and applied his high efficiency designs to every Harrelson Trumpet. By reducing the energy loss in the standing wave, response, tone, dynamics, slotting, range and endurance are greatly improved. Standing Wave Efficiency (SWE) is the term coined by Harrelson which describes the efficiency of an instrument. The higher the SWE, the better the horn. The Bravura is designed with higher SWE than any conventional factory-built trumpet and almost every custom hand-built trumpet available today. If this seems impossible, then consider what science has done for other industries in the past 50 years. Automobiles get better fuel mileage AND have more power than ever before and computers and cell phones are smaller, faster and more powerful every month. Science does apply to every aspect of life INCLUDING trumpets and the science of trumpet playing. Play-test a Harrelson Bravura and see for yourself that efficiency will change your playing immediately.
Harrelson Trumpets is a leading manufacturer of world class trumpets and accessories. Jason Harrelson is a working professional trumpet player, inventor and machinist pushing trumpet design to a new level. He began researching trumpet acoustics in 1996 and has since improved many aspects of trumpet design which increase the overall Standing Wave Efficiency (SWE) of the instrument. Harrelson Trumpets are more efficient, easier to play and sound better by incorporating SWE technology into the design and manufacturing process.
