You have just discovered the ultimate source for comprehensive solutions to brass playing challenges.
We eliminate the guess work and frustration of finding, fitting and
purchasing new equipment. And we guarantee you will love everything you

Have you ever wondered why the upper register on one trumpet is easier than another trumpet?
know why this happens. In fact, we developed the Variable Performance
System (VPS) to address this very problem. We guarantee you will find
the correct VPS setting to fit your playing preferences in a matter of
minutes. Does this sound too good to be true? Over 20 years of Research
and Development has been invested in Harrelson VPS solutions. We studied
the physics, we did the math and we produce the results!
How do we build trumpets that play easier?
Wave Efficiency (SWE) is the name of the game when it comes to building
trumpets that play easier. The VPS Summit model literally plays with
less effort. If you struggle to play your highest notes
on your current equipment, then two minutes playing the VPS Summit will
reveal your instrument is in fact losing energy, thus forcing you to
work harder. Why work harder when you could be making more music?
How is the VPS Summit made?
build Harrelson trumpets embracing 21st century manufacturing
techniques. Innovating with the latest technology, CAD software and
modern CNC machinery, we cut almost every component of our instruments
and accessories from solid brass round and billet stock. We are the only
manufacturer in the world to employ these technologies and techniques.
From the beginning in 1995, our vision has explored new technologies to
improve the playability, versatility and personal preferences available
to the trumpet player. We are the latest true innovators in the
beautiful tradition of trumpet making.
Innovation is everything at Harrelson Trumpets
trumpets are designed, built and tested by Jason Harrelson, founder and
owner of Harrelson Trumpets. Jason's perspective as a professional
trumpet player and his work with thousands of the best trumpet players
in the world as a mouthpiece, accessories and instrument builder has
given him immense feedback and insight into approaching the challenges
of brass playing. He has specifically designed the Variable Performance
System to meet the needs of each individual player regardless of where
they are in their quest for musical expression.
We produce the only VGR in the world
extensive research on Standing Wave Efficiency and the Variable
Performance System led to the development of the integral Venturi Gap
Receiver. This breakthrough innovation allows the player to adjust air
flow, resistance, flexibility and slotting to any possible setting in
seconds. Now you can fine tune your setup to fit you as an individual.
And as your preferences grow with your ability, you can fine tune again
and again with no need to ever purchase another instrument.
We are the sole source for SWE Technology
VPS Summit models produce the highest efficiency of any custom trumpet
in the world. This is a result of more than twenty years of research
into our proprietary SWE Technology. The cross section of every machined
component including the receiver, leadpipe, tuning slide, bell crook,
braces, caps, finger rings and buttons have been carefully designed to
preserve more of the sound wave than conventional instruments. In fact,
our trumpets play so much easier that most people are in disbelief upon
their first time playing a VPS Summit model.
Where are Harrelson Trumpets built?
of our instruments, Mod Kits, accessories and 5MM mouthpieces are built
in Denver, Colorado. After all these years, Jason Harrelson has
remained true to his passion for building the highest quality musical
instruments possible. He supervises or builds every single mouthpiece
