Love It <3
By Katie Claire
A couple months ago, I started teaching myself to play trumpet using a crappy school instrument on loan from my band director. Once summer hit though, I had no instrument to practice with, so I ordered this trumpet off of Amazon, thinking it would be a good deal for me, since I wasn't sure on whether or not I would be sticking with it. I have to say, I'm impressed. This is a good quality instrument, and even my fellow sectionmates were impressed with how well it played for the price I got it for. I've been playing it for about six months now and I love it. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good instrument without wanting to pay a bunch of money for it.

My wife is a professional trumpet player and she approves!
We have tried other "discount" trumpets for my son and they were junk. This one has a very nice feel and build quality and looks very cool. The case is very nice as well. (much better than the $50 trumpet case we just bought for my wife actually) Both my wife and son LOVE the two tone color of silver and gold. Very happy guy here!

This trumpet has a great sound. Looks beautiful as well. You will not be disappointed in purchasing this product. Thanks.
Two year update: This horn still looks and sounds beautiful. My son is first chair trumpet with this horn. His band director is not a fan of instruments not bought through the program the school uses. However, she made an exception for this one. If the band director approves, that should tell you something. Two years of playing and still going strong.
At the beginning, we did have problems with valves sticking slightly. However, my child was not pressing down on the keys the correct way. Once we got his hand placement corrected, he had no issues whatsoever. You cannot put sideways pressure on a valve and expect it to move fluidly.
