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

Craig Konicek

"I have played many horns as a professional trumpet player - including horns of fellow players - and I feel that the Gen X is the best horn out there today. From the first 3 or 4 notes I played on it, I knew something was different about this horn. It was not only the ease of playing it but the sound is... just better. This horn makes it fun to play trumpet. I play a variety of styles, including lead trumpet, cornet solos, concertos, jazz, etc., and the Gen X allows me to do it all on one horn and have a great time doing it."
