"In December 2008 I was asked to contribute to the design, research, and development of the new XO Professional 1600I Bb trumpet for KHS / Jupiter. In mid-September 2009 I play-tested and approved the prototypes. I take my hat off to the design team and technicians who developed and assembled this model. These horns are consistent and fabulous." -- Roger Ingram
Here is a pdf file of the official XO Accessories info document which is included with each new horn purchase. This describes all the "extras" that come with the 1600I trumpet (an extra tuning slide, brass valve guides, heavy bottom caps, lighter weight springs, lightweight finger buttons) AND the XONS, the "XO Nodal Stabilizers" that Roger designed to improve upper register slotting.
INSTRUMENTS: Roger plays the XO Brass 1600I Bb trumpet of his own design. This trumpet was created after extensive research by Roger and the XO Brass design team. Roger also plays the XO Brass model 1646R flügelhorn, the XO Brass 4-valve Bb/A model 1700RS piccolo trumpet and the XO Brass model 1624 C trumpet. XObrass.com/portfolio-item/roger-ingram/
Roger plays the "Ingram Lead-2" model mouthpiece for Big Band Lead trumpet playing. For specific upper register work, Roger plays the "Ingram V-Cup" model mouthpiece. Roger also plays the "Ingram Studio-2" model mouthpiece for most studio, Broadway and show types of work. For small jazz combos and classical settings, Roger plays the "Ingram Jazz" model mouthpiece. All "Ingram Signature Line" mouthpieces are designed by Roger Ingram and Peter Pickett and are available through One Too Tree Music Products: OneTooTree.com/IngramMouthpieces.html
For flügelhorn, Roger plays the Warburton 5FL flugelhorn model mouthpiece. For piccolo trumpet, Roger plays the Schilke 11AX model piccolo/cornet mouthpiece. For valve trombone, Roger plays the Marcinkiewicz "Steinmeyer Signature Model" tenor trombone mouthpiece.
When Roger needs work done on his horns, Steve Winans, aka "Dr. Valve," is his preferred brass instrument technician.
