Martin Committee Trumpet Leadpipe

Martin Committee Trumpet Leadpipes
Many Martin Committees suffer from "red rot" in the leadpipe. This is a deterioration where the brass is actually eroding. Charlie's Brass Works has developed an exact copy of the original Committee pipes. This pipe is built as a replica of the 1940's pipe to retain the classic playability and sound.

This leadpipe is sold as a complete assembly, which includes the Vintage Receiver, Leadpipe tube, Ferrule, and inside tube.

2 models available:

Standard Model - all brass components
Deluxe Model - featuring an engraved nickel receiver & ferrule

GR/Melk Couesnon Flugel Leadpipe, also for Olds CT Models, Blessing Artist, and Bach
Charlie Melk and Gary Radtke designed these leadpipes to fit a Vintage Couesnon Flugel. It is built to accept a standard taper Flugel mouthpiece. Original Couesnon leadpipes were built with a "French" shank mouthpiece. With our GR/Melk Couesnon Flugel Leadpipe, you will not need to special order a mouthpiece. This leadpipe accepts any standard GR taper flugelhorn mouthpiece. It will not accept straight "French" tapered shanks. Play testing this leadpipe showed immediate improvement in soft attacks and intonation. All aspects of the Couesnon Flugel were improved.
