Thought this ws a cracking price for a first trumpet

Looking for a good quality Trumpet at a great price? Look no further, this brand new beautiful Bb Trumpet is the highest pitched member of the Brass family.

Made of fine quality brass and a high quality lacquered finish, it has that highly polished look with a good quality mouthpiece and comes with a free case.

It has three valves to generate very strong and loud melodies with orchestra, jazz, marching and symphonic bands. Its versatility is such that it can be played quite softly to suit a more lyrical style or as a solo instrument to accompany the piano.

These Trumpets are fantastic value and easy to play, they are great fun for all ages and suitable for any level of player from beginner to the experienced musician. It comes complete with a free of charge plush hard case.

Just don't do it! Take advice from a trumpet teacher.

Best wishes, Neil

OK as an ornament, but because it has been lacquered, it is no use whatsoever as a musical instrument.

Could you provide any one considering buying this with a reason why, and perhaps a link or two to similar priced "first trumpets"?

Thanks

The lacquer distorts the sound. It cannot be removed cleanly. OK as a toy or ornament but you do not want any brass instrument with lacquer on it as so called protection.

Have to agree as a trumpet player if you have £80 to spend then keep saving - you get what you pay for with this item

I have never heard so much tripe in my entire life, and as a regular on here, I certainly hear some! :-(

It's too cheap, these things are generally not at all good, and you can get something a little more playable for just a bit more - something like the Helios or Virtuosi student range might be where I would think about starting:
eg. jpbrass.co.uk/vir…=16
The Intermediate range might be better value, but is better part of twice the price.

Generally there are plenty of better quality second hand trumpets about too.

You obviously know nothing about music. If you coated your brass instrument in lacquer you would not be allowed to play in any band I have been a part of for this very reason.

I am thrilled to hear it - I would hate to waste my time.

I haven't seen many brass players coat their instruments themselves other than after repair, but most non-plated instruments are lacquered, apart from a small proportion left as raw brass, mainly Trumpets, and Flugel Horns in practice, although some French Horns & Trombones too. Modern Baroque Trumpets & Horns are probably almost ALL raw brass of course, as you might expect int eh interest of historical accuracy!

While it is possible to argue pros and cons of the various finishes, the difference is subtle and one thing is for certain, at a beginners level is totally irrelevant, the difference in the sound from a kid after 6 weeks of tuition on a 100 quid instrument and on a £3,000 is likely to be indistinguishable, let alone detectable by the difference in it's surface finish!

Clearly there are a lot of players & M.Ds of all standards know nothing too - here is just a small selection showing top grade musicians that you will NOT be working with, too:
Fairey Band: faireyband.com/ima…tml

Patrick Harrid (Tuba) of the LSO: lso.co.uk/pat…ild

The Band of the Parachute Regiment: army.mod.uk/mus…spx

Now you would be REALLY stuck with Brass group Mnozil.... mnozilbrass.at/
it seems SOME of the players use raw brass instruments, and some don't! Shame!

Gold or silver Plated, raw brass or Lacquer is a matter of personal taste, finance and aesthetics, as well as for reason of tone, but I would suggest there are as many supporters of lacquer as a finish as there are of plated or raw brass, for reason of sound; you only have top look at Artists at all levels, using instruments of all manufacturers

I could go on, but I only want other readers here to see how ridiculous your comments are, so extreme a viewpoint that is makes me suspect it is just Trolling so I won't feed this any further, and suggest you go and talk to someone that might want to listen on a Brass musical site. Good luck with that.

Said it before, will say it again, these instruments are actually OK for a learner. When you consider certain shops which convert items for cash will pretty much refund you most of your money back if you need to get rid.
For a beginner, probably a child, who switch between hobbies constantly these are fine, I play in a championship section brass band and teach part time, before people start questioning credentials, and these are fine for the money.
The valves are sturdy as long as they're kept oiled and the triggers fine as long as the tubes kept greased. They're also good because the triggers an adjustable size, useful for small hands. The case is of a good quality and will take knocks well, and the mouthpiece is provided is comfortable.
For £80, these are a bargain if you're on a budget, and you can recoup most of your money if needed.

As we have said before, there are differences in opinion, just I would say a fair bit better can be had for just a little bit more, leading to better value. I do agree with some points you make though, and would never suggest going mad on an expensive instrument that is going to be hammered to death!

I suppose it's like a lot of other buys - eg. with TV sets, (or whatever) there are those who will be happy with a Goodmans TV when something like a Samsung or an LG will be available for 50 quid more, and be a lot better. I have found over the years with ALL goods, that TOO cheap isn't often good value at all, and that is usually to be found just a little "further up" the marketplace.

agreed, the stuff about lacquer is rubbish.

nearly ALL new instruments made from brass are LACQUERED. if lacquer is so bad, then why are selmer saxophones and brass instruments lacquered? why are bach brass instruments lacquered? if lacquer is so bad, then why are new instruments lacquered?

seriously, the lacquer is not the problem, that trumpet is a waste of time and with instruments you get what you pay for
if you, your friend/relative or whatever want to learn an instrument, then learning the instrument is hard work, you dont want to make it harder but poor quality things like that will loose adjustment so fast that they will be hard to play. the best thing you can do is spend more to get a good solid instrument.

i am interested in the instrument and will like to pick it up at Sixty pounds, if thyat is OK you can contact me at Holiday Inn Hotel, Bretford. I am in room 207.
i will be there till Friday.
