2 - The Written Word:
Eclipse trumpets recognise the importance of the home-grown instruments. Just as raspberries, broad beans and beetroot from your own garden taste so much sweeter, so the sound of a British trumpet has a lyrical quality, a richness of tone that is imprinted by the hours of skilled labour lavished upon it, come rain or occasionally shine. Once it is ripe and ready to be picked, it will be presented to it\'s new owner - who will care and cherish it, for it has exquisite form and function, a hardy perennial which will continue to produce a crop of fantastic music for years to come. With many different species and varieties there must be one for you.

3 - Want, Need, Should:
At last, a British trumpet that combines the visual impact and flair of a personalised trumpet with the sound characteristics required for a more classical style - a killer combination for people like me who want to bring personality to the genre, without compromising musical integrity. Well done, Eclipse, and yes, please could you send me one!
