Foster Bell

The bell profile is modelled closely on an instument built by Johann Carl Kodisch in Nuremburg ca 1700. Now in Eb, it was slightly shortened at some time in the past and probably used with shanks or crooks for pitches of D or C. Our bell diameter has been made slightly less than the original, at 110mm compared to 119mm. The trumpet can be made from Brass, Copper, Nickel Silver, or any combination of the three!
