Cardwell “Athena” F Trumpet by Calicchio SN F-67-2




This is a one-of-a-kind Athena F Trumpet designed by master trumpet designer Bill Cardwell, and manufactured by D. Calicchio.  This is the only Athena F Trumpet created, and was designed by Cardwell specifically to address the challenges posed to trumpet players by the Brandenburg #2.  This particular instrument was played by Jack Holland in the Jack Daniels Band.

Cardwell was an engineer and trumpet enthusiast who, upon a physical injury leaving him unable to continue playing, chose to devote his energy and apply his knowledge of seismic wave exploration to trumpet design.  Cardwell worked with and was respected by many notable manufacturers and designers, including Dominic Calicchio, Zig Kanstul, Bernie Adelstein, Bob Reeves, K.O. Skinses, and Cliff Blackburn.
