Treatments

Heat Treated
Heat treating a bell is a softening process. This bell is treated in specific areas that will encourage more overtones with projection. Heat treated bells "slot" slightly less than a tempered bell and create higher overtones at louder volumes.
Annealed
Annealing is also a softening process that encompasses the entire bell. An annealed bell offers a smooth blow with a slightly darker tone. Articulations are slower with the "slot" being wider.
Tempered
Tempered bells offer no heat treatments. This bell creates clear focused tone with medium to fast response. This bell "slot" well with less room for adjustment.

In Their Own Words

Graham Ashton

"If you are looking for a C trumpet that has a clear, round sound with incredible intonation, then have Edwards make you a copy of the horn Christan made for me: Generation II C with a reverse Bb leadpipe. No more cross fingerings for Db,D,Eb or E and the top C and D slots right in. I've now used it in a range of repertoire from Berio's Sequenza X to Poulenc's Trio to 1st trumpet in Strauss' Alpine Symphony. I also played it on the latest Graham Ashton Brass Ensemble cd for Signum Records (London). It really is a sensational horn. Go try it!"
