Studio Metal is the Brass counterpart of the Metal HL2018, which is made from Tin, but produces a brighter tone. The chamber design has been slightly modified from the Metal HL2018 in order to accommodate the material.
I introduced the Studio Metal when I stopped producing the original Metal HL in 2015. I made brass with high baffle mouthpieces when I was replacing Metal HL. This model has been given original design accents on the exterior, which gives it a unique and “cool” look. The exterior design also gives the mouthpiece more overtones, and changes the resistance.
