Temby ‘BV’ Vintage Trumpet with Bob Reeves Valve Alignment


The ‘BV’ Vintage Series is a fitting tribute to one of Australia’s leading trumpet players, Bob Venier. A beautiful and warm sounding horn, reminiscent of the good old days. This one has had Bob Reeves valve alignment completed on it improving the airflow and reducing resistance.



Named as a fitting tribute to Bob Venier (who plays this model) – The Bob Venier “BV” Vintage Series. Recognised as one of Australia’s leading trumpet players, Bob has been in constant demand as both a studio session musician and a jazz soloist for the last three decades.

David Temby “When I was a young player, I was captivated by Bob Venier playing beautiful lyrical jazz lines. He has remained my absolute favourite flugelhorn player since. Bob has been one of Australia’s most versatile professional trumpet players for decades now, and his playing is as precise and heartfelt as ever. To have Bob playing one of my horns is a dream come true. He play tested a number of Temby models including cycralign treated silver custom models, but finally settled on a custom raw brass “Vintage” instrument which we then modified to become his own signature model. His sound is magical on this horn – thanks Bob!”

The BV Vintage features .460″ ML bore, with raw brass finish. The brass will age over a period of time and will look like an older vintage horn. The body of the instrument is made from yellow brass for responsiveness, while the rose brass bell, warms the sound up substantially.

For those players that want a beautiful, warm sounding horn, reminiscent of the good old days, this could also be your next horn. This horn also has excellent projection and core at higher volumes, while still retaining a room filling presence. Add to this, an easier airflow, excellent slots, great intonation and the reliability of a technically advanced instrument –  the BV Vintage model is a huge success story.
