great site - lovely elelctric mandolin on there thanks for posting

Be warned - you get the quality you are paying for....ie rubbish.

I bought a mandolin and and electric mandolin from this site last year. Both had necks that were warped and were unplayable. Contacting them and chasing a refund was also a nightmare...so much so, I just gave up and was about to throw the things away when a friend ask for them for her amatuer dramatics group as props.

Firewood :-(

Why are people voting this hot? You can not buy cheep musical instruments and expect them to sound any good, if you can even manage to play them that is.

Avoid.

Ah thanks for the heads up warning.

No brass instruments

Well there is a trumpet, but to be honest, these ultra cheap ones are awful things :-(
A reasonable trumpet or cornet is about 112 to 130 quid, and will last a lot longer too

eg. Virtuosi: jpbrass.co.uk/vie…235
Rosetti is also a cheap yet moderately decent name that I have tried they are a little more.

There is also the seondhand route, something like a Jupiter or a Yamaha, but beware the really cheap Indian and Chinese ones.

Remember the cheapest method of all - FREE - try local Brass Bands who will loan instruments AND provide FREE tuition: many have junior or beginners bands and tuition classes - now that schools often provide none, it can be the best source of affordable instrumental tuition for many people, not just kids either!

I am one of the "local Brass Bands" who "provide free tuition". lol. I run the junior band, and am part of the staff team for the older band. We have a few Virtuosi trumpets and a couple of dynabones. Hit and miss with the quality. Some are great, some valves sticking etc.

At this price, the instuments will be more likely to put any potential musicians off for life.

Your right - my son wanted to learn the trumpet and was amazed when he went for a lesson he was given one to come home with to practise... on loan from the local brass band

Whenever people justify these super cheap instruments they always say something like "You dont want to spend a lot until you are sure they are committed to learning it" but fact is if you buy a decent second hand instrument it will hold its value for years to come. That second hand instrument that cost you £80 will still be worth £80 6 months later if the kid decides he doesn't wanna learn it. Just sell the instrument again for what you paid for it. You aren't going to be throwing away hundreds of pounds. You might lose £10 or £20 at most.

I have said it on several posts, and you are the first one to confirm it! People are always looking for a bargain, this one can save MANY hundreds!

Been attached to brass bands all my life - that's how I learned to play! :-D

Don't do it. These will be awful and unplayable. Do what belovedmonster says and get a secondhand instrument, or borrow one.

Again, and I have said this before, the trumpets are actually alright. I can't comment on the rest but the trumpets are maestro, come with a good solid case and a playable mouthpiece (though, again, you might want to change this for something more suited to a beginner.)
The branding is maestro, they have a rose lead pipe and I've used them to teach for a couple of years now.
I really do agree with the sentiments shown regarding brass bands though, been in them for years and am now in quite a successful one. BUT, if you want a trumpet, not a cornet ect. then this is actually a decent buy. Just keep the valves oiled (included), and the slides greased (they are when delivered but the grease is not included, vaseline works fine)

I used to play an instrument, but i kept breaking my G-String

Try any instrument before you buy.

Almost all the comments on this are negative, and seem to come from musician...

I think its only got voted hot (after a week) because people just read the price and the title and vote without any knowledge of music or musical instruments.

AVOID AVOID AVOID.

yep.....even cheap quality instruments (using their "5 string banjo" as an example) have a brand name. none of these instruments are branded, so looks like they are just expensive toys

So what bands are you all members of, or associated with?
