These items arent gonna appeal to everyone - but a Ukulele could make a quirky for that hard to buy person lool

great price on mandolin - might add to dd selection - great find - h & r

Great prices, but my personal opinion as a violinist: If you are getting a violin, bow and case for £30, you can't expect much from the violin ie. It will be badly set-up and fitted with the cheapest steel strings that go 'eeek', so think twice before buying for a child/niece/nephew ;-)

Get a beginner's Stentor violin for £75 from proper music shop is a safer option

Have not voted either hot or cold

Agree - but you pay a high premium to buy from Chappell - around £50 for the example in your link at some music shops and online...

Anyone like to offer an opinion on the trumpet


I am a brass musician - Tuba player, but due to disability, I spent about 4 years playing cornet! (easier to lug around, but no star I am afraid!), rather than have to give up playing altogether although not playing at all at the moment :-(

I am afraid my opinion of this seems to fit in with the comment son the violin... it is just too cheap, and is not up to much at all :-(

My advice, buy something like a second-hand Jupiter, or an entry level Yamaha, or possibly a student Virtuosi instruments model at a push they are about 100 quid new, and is as cheap as I would go.

Also... does it have to be trumpet? Cornet offers more opportunities to play with others....(Brass & concert bands, as well as other ensembles) and is very similar in terms of technique, and of course players can double on both at a later date. It is alos a little bit more manageable for younger kids, as it doesn't stick out so far!
Bands around the country are crying out for learners at beginners classes all around the country - and odds on most will be able to supply an instrument, for free use as well as free or nominally priced tuition (and it means not all the noise will be made at home!)

re the Stentor being 'overpriced' at chapell's.

You'll find that most prices will be going up between now and January the 1st as pretty much every supplier has written to us saying prices are going up 20-25% due to the $:£ rate at the moment.

Anyone selling them cheaper will either be selling off old stock bought at old prices, or be out of stock and cancel your order when they realise the prices have gone up.

The £30 violins will most likely be steam pressed instead of carved like the Stentor 1's and also do not have fine tuners( stentor does and you will only end up having to go out and have some finetuners fitted)
Considering a moderate set of violin strings costs more than that entire violin i'd take caution and don't be surprised if WHEN you have problems with it and try to take it to your local music shop for help, they will tell you there is nothing can be done with it.


Cheap trumpets have poor valves that stick and horrible tone due to the metal composition.
Our sub-contractor refuses to work on them as when he fixes one thing, something else usually breaks, which then ends up taking forever to fix as the problems snowball


AVOID the ukulele, that is not cheap. Your local music shop will have ukes for £12-£15 INCLUDING a bag and they will also have GEARED machineheads.
The uke on that site uses peg type tuners which will forever slip as they are only held in place by the tension from the strings. Geared machineheads are more commonplace now and stay in tune better.
#12
Most music shops do Uke's for £15, that price is not so special, the rest isn't too bad.
#13
I go with the general opinion not to buy cheap instruments. With stringed instruments you will find many of them will go out of tune quickly and the action (Height of strings above the neck) is often too high. Net result is you will give up trying to play the instrument.
Spend a bit more or buy 2nd hand

Just to put in my 2p on the value of these instruments.

Don't bother unless you're simply after some home décor. You get what you pay for - and these are really not up to much. It's like comparing a Tata (City Rover comes to mind) to another small car. Sure it's much cheaper. For a reason.

With musical instruments take a price you think is reasonable (considering your price range/skill level/experience etc.), then double it. That's how much you need to spend to get something that sounds as good as you want it to (i.e. if you think £100 for a guitar is reasonable you should be paying about £200). Electronic instruments* are slightly different, but for acoustic stuff this is a decent rule of thumb.

*(electronic as in synths, not electric as in electric guitar)
#15
For what it's worth, and maybe this is a sign of this happening to instruments in general, the mega-cheap electric guitars you can buy are not actually that bad. They're certainly fine to learn on.

I have no expereince of these (and can only play piano and guitar), but don't assume that price is an indicator of quality, in this world, you no longer get what you pay for.
#16
I played the violin for years, and although I don't know anything about the quality of these particular instruments, I wouldn't buy a violin without fine tuners for a beginner. As has been said, mid-range strings alone such as Dominants or Synoxas are around £30 for the set, so I'd expect to pay a minimum of £75 for a decent beginners violin.
#17
I'd stay well clear of poor quality instruments for a beginner, you're simply not giving yourself a chance, learning to play is hard enough anyway without having to contend with more obstacles put in your way by a poor insrument.

Don't forget 10% Quidco. I just did!!

I think it is easier to make a good cheap electric guitar than an a good cheap acoustic, violin, or brass instrument. By virtue of the fact that it is electric and solid body, things like wood quality and construction are not as quite as important. I was pretty chuffed with the £26 ebuyer electric but wouldn't buy an acoustic or violin or brass instrument without seeing it first.

There are certainly some decent acoustic guitars around for £50 and I think it is worth paying a bit more to get a decent starter instrument.
#20
slash`s 1st guitar was old and battered it only had 2 strings for a while but didn`t put him off.. You need to be determined to learn 1st or you`ll just give up no matter how good the instrument

Well here's my 2 cents;
As an experienced brass musician in the champ section I teach my students on these and have one at home for tootling round on. Flugels my first instrument (a phat boi incase you were wondering) and I think these trumpets offer really good value for money, they're alright for tuning and the tones not too bad.
When you consider the cost of renting an instrument these days and if you're not sure if your child will keep up their new hobby then you shouldn't be spending a fortune, and if you take one of these to your local cash converters then you can make the majority of your money back.
Obviously for professionals they're not so hot, but if your kid wants to learn I would suggest this is a good way in. The only thing I would suggest is that you replace the mouthpiece for something that suits the child best, you can go to any decent music shop and give them a go, it will set you back around £20 - £30 for a half decent one but can make all the difference.
HTH :thumbsup:

I'm not often speechless!

As I said, it's only an opinion but it's one based on experience.
I do agree with your opinion on the cornet, but buying a cheap cornet is basically throwing your money away, and many brass bands have instruments to lend, so you're better, IMO, to buy a cheap trumpet to learn the basics on.
