On the bell: Jerome Callet NEW YORK. Traditional water keys replaced the original Amado water keys. Does not come with a mouthpiece or case. Beginning in the early'80s, Jerry worked with Donald Getzen and DEG to make a pro quality horn at an intermediate price. Jerry's custom changes to the original DEG design resulted in a trumpet that outperformed all existing trumpets in power, slotting, upper register control, and intonation, and at a fraction of the price of competing horns.Several thousand of these horns are still in regular use around the world. Made in both Bb and C models, these horns are generally identifiable by "New York" inscribed on the leadpipe and/or bell. The nylon spring holders in the valves also easily identify these horns (see pic on right). None of these horns are inscribed with the words Jazz, Soloist, Symphonique, or Stratosphere as these models were made after the New York Callets were out of production. New York Callets came in 3 bores.
468 (LG engraved on horn). 472 (SLB, for super large bore, engraved on horn). A personal favorite of Jerry's, the SLB is the largest bore trumpet ever in regular production. It produced a huge sound, particularly in the upper register, yet still retained a solid core and focus to the sound.
