This MIDI wind controller has been designed for trumpet players to make it as easy as possible to transition from the regular trumpet. The MDT has been in development for over 5 years to create an instrument that ?feels right? when you first pick it up. Your hand position will be very similar to what you?re used to, the mouthpiece is a normal trumpet mouthpiece, the valves move in the same way, and the air ?resistance? is familiar.
