Instruments & Gear

Players Music LLC has been appointed exclusive U.S. distributor for Cool Wind ABS Horns.

Cool Wind horns are the next generation of plastic wind instruments in a fast-growing category. These high-performance instruments offer all-metal high-precision valves, surprising tonal fidelity and excellent reliability at highly competitive price points. Cool Wind wind instruments will initially be available in five different models, including a trombone with F attachment (F trigger), trumpet, euphonium, tuba and piccolo trumpet. Each model is available in five different colors. The instruments have already enjoyed success in the European and Australian markets and have been thoroughly field-tested before entering the U.S. market.
