The CF Horn by Warburton Music Products

I am proud to officially say that the CF Horn by Warburton Music Products is now available!  Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some wonderful companies and have had some killer horns made for me.  My arrival at Warburton Music Products is the result of a 25 year friendship with Terry Warburton. I’m honored to have this great partnership and humbled to have my initials on this great “CF Horn”!  The “CF Horn” by Warburton is the culmination of more than 2 decades of research and development from my private collection of horns, with companies I’ve worked with throughout the years. Between the bore size, bell size, killer mouthpiece receiver,  great balance and weight distribution, the “CF Horn” slots like no other while producing the biggest sound I have ever produced on a Bb trumpet. The “CF Horn” by Warburton is the best horn I’ve ever played.

Some Specs

This medium bore (.455”) trumpet features a modified medium-style leadpipe and a lightweight, 5 1/4 inch, yellow brass bell with a large flare.. The revolutionary Warburton slot receiver paired with an ovate tuning slide gives the horn a more open feel than most smaller bore horns, allowing the player to have something to blow against without feeling like the horn is backing up.

These carefully designed reflection points paired with a lightweight ferrule, the over-sized lightweight bell, and the absence of a waterkey on the third-valve slide create the big sound, response, and feedback that is desired by high-intensity players like Carl.

The CF Horns also feature a secondary set of serial numbers to reflect their uniqueness as an instrument.  Each horn will be play-tested by Carl to ensure that serial number 001 plays the same as serial number 100.

Research & Development

Here are some photos taken during the research and development of the CF Horn.  Here are a few pics of Carl at Warburton Music Products working with Terry Warburton to finalize the CF Horn Design! The CF Horn in the photos is actually CF Horn #000, which is Carl’s personal horn he has been playing on the most recent tour dates with Billy Joel.
