Bert Lochs spielt auf einer Van Laar B8 Trompete und einem Van Laar B2 flügelhorn. Ein Curry 10.5C und 10.5TC Mundstück auf Trompete, und Curry 10.5FL auf seinem Flügelhorn.
Lochs a nimble and dexterous trumpet player, who reveals his virtuosity mainly in the moulding of his sound - hence the title of his cd. He is a man who truly knows how to make his flugelhorn sizzle, instead of just using the instrument for ballads. In Florian Zenker and Jasper Somsen he found his perfect sparring-partners: they completely follow the broad spectrum of atmospheres, rhythms and melodies Bert Lochs wishes to unleash upon the world.
