This has been for sale for quite a while and anyone familiar with trawling through ebuyer will realise this, but with the schools starting back next week, I thought it topical to mention this, since many of you will have children who will be re-taking up their music lessons.

Now, in our area to hire a trumpet for the year costs £70, so this trumpet at a mere £39.99 (£44.68 inc. delivery) represents a decent saving for the year.

I bought a job lot at one ebuyer blast when they were going for £34.99 and sold them on to various people, and had them appraised by the music school I go to.

All were in agreement that whilst a cheap trumpet, is perfectly usable certainly for primary school and up to A-level for all but the best players.

Therefore, I thought I'd bring it to the attention of the HUKD'ers.


It comes with:
A hard case.
A pair of white gloves.
A cleaning cloth.


The only thing missing is some valve lube, which can be had from any music store for a couple of quid.

Valve lube = Valve lubricant, stops the valves getting stuck. Something any music shop will have

Dont waste your money, these kind of cheapo "instruments" are really just junk toys, as you will find out when your child takes it to their teacher and they say buy a proper trumpet.


cheap instruments = false economy, they sound pants and and are hard to play which then discourages your kids from playing so dont waste your money.

I work in a music shop and see this junk all the time with parents asking to get their "brand new bargain" instruments repaired to work properly which is impossible due to the materials they are made out of.

The initial problem you will get is the valves constantly sticking due to its steel construction.

Just cos its cheap doesnt make it a bargain.

I have to admit, although I really like a bargain as much as the next person, I was really glad that I bought a Yamaha trumpet to learn with as it had a lovely tone right from the start and was very smooth to play.

I did it on a scheme where you sign up to hire it for minimum of 3 months at around £25 a month and keep paying if you keep learning and after a year, it is yours to keep. You can cancel it at any point after the 3 months though with a months notice. Great for when you don't know if you are goign to stick with something!
#22
blue that's still £300 for a yamaha trumpet. You'd probably be better off to be honest buying a new one and taking the risk that you might not like it and end up flogging it on ebay.

Sorry, but you're wrong. :p

Many of the cheap instruments on the market today are excellent quality and I've bought a number that represent excellent value for money.

The days of being held hostage to highly priced instruments only available from music stores that operate under a cosy system of distribution deals with main manufacturers is over thank goodness!!!

Most of the main brands source their budget models from the same suppliers that make the unbranded cheapies anyway - only they cost 3 or 4 times the price. :p


For a beginner these are brilliant:thumbsup:

Reminds me of the American Pie 2 movie..... *Parp* :giggle:

Got mine this morning. Have played guitar for years and fancied trying something different and it seems really good to me. Sure if I keep it on as a hobby I'll want to upgrade soon but for £40 it's worth a punt. Cheers! :-D

Thanks! Are there any cash incentives?? :-D

tosh, I bought my 6 yr old one a while back from Ebuyer and it's no Boosey & Hawkes, but it is actually pretty decent. I suspect that many a local music shop sells the exact same ones for £150+ :whistling:
