The Master range from Phil Parker London aims to bring pro trumpets to the market at an affordable price. The Master 1ZLR is a truly versatile trumpet but designed with the commercial/lead player in mind. It is dual bore. Medium bore lead pipe leading to an ML bore tuning slide and valve group. The lead pipe is based upon the famous Olds recording Bb trumpet but bought back up to date with a reversed design and certainly has a passing resemblance to the original and much loved Yamaha Bobby Shew model, now discontinued. The 1ZLR is capable of a lovely warm sound at quiet dynamics but give it one and it’ll fire up and scorch the pants off the sound engineer.

the 1ZLR has a 0.453" M bore opening to 0.460" ML and includes a backpack case and care kit

"The Phil Parker Master Z is a great trumpet, especially when looking for something with a brighter, more lively sound! At all dynamics, the sound retains warmth, and doesn’t thin out in any part of the range. Similar to the 137, the articulations are crystal clear, and the intonation is really secure. I really love the feel of this instrument, with a very easy, slotted high range.

I enjoyed how easy it felt to play, so I ended up using it on some commercial sessions!"
