What Getzen said in 1965:
We did o very obvious thing-we went to the top-fee artists whose living depends on their instruments ability to consistently deliver maximum performance under all conditions. Demands on these contemporary artists have risen to unprecedented heights! He must not only have greater range, both in terms of register and dynamics, but he must be versatile, with a complete understanding of all styles of playing, so that he can interpret the conductors ideas without [or at least a minimum of) rehearsal , In addition, astounding advances have been made in recording techniques, and since the working trumpeters performances are recorded either on high fidelity stereo or video-tapes, it is mandatory that his artistry "gets on" those tapes. We learned that many artists have found their trumpet that sounded so great in the dealer's store or their own studio, did not make it when they heard the play-backs. Something in the timbre, the "edge", locus of the tone, or the fullness, was lacking. we will not attempt to describe tones in terms of "dark", "light", "brilliance", etc., because these have private connotations to individuals which simply are not consistent. But it is safe to say that the trumpet tones required today, both by the producers who hire, compose, arrange, and conduct, and the listening or buying audiences, are the most live and exciting trumpet sounds ever. In addition-in these days oJ the "flatted-fifths", chordal structures demand more accurate intonation both from the performer and his instrument. All the above mentioned factors were considered in designing the new Getzen ETERNA trumpets, and we had the direct guidance of the artist who best represents the contemporary-professional trumpet men, Carl "Doc" Severinsen *. we think you too will find that extra margin of confidence and comfort that our ETERNA will give you.
