Monel Valves
Monel is a metal alloy of copper and nickel that is used to make valves. The alloy is robust and allows more precise tolerances in the valve action and less sticking, with proper care.

Reverse Lead Pipe:
Other than the mouthpiece the lead pipe is the first part of the trumpet that the air flows through. The lead pipe is connected to the tuning slide (the first bend in a trumpet). A standard lead pipe causes slight resistance due to the tuning slide sitting inside it. Reversing this construction results in a free blowing trumpet.

For the bell material, (not the plating) gold brass has a higher percentage of copper vs nickel, giving it a darker and more mellow sound.
