OVERVIEW

Special finishes on remarkable plastic trumpets.

Allora's AERE Series of composite trumpets are lightweight, affordable and surprisingly robust instruments, viable for beginners, intermediate students and beyond. Designed with True Note Technology, they combine metal with ABS plastic to create a structurally sound instrument with a unique blended brass instrument tone. These trumpets are available in 11 different colors including metallic finishes exclusive to AERE. This item consists of a dropdown that shows all of the metallic finishes. Choose the one that suits you best.

They are the only plastic trumpets which feature true stainless steel valves (just like their brass counterparts). Weighing in at half the weight of brass trumpets, it is a perfect solution for musicians looking to shed a few pounds. The complete AERE Trumpet Package includes a mouthpiece, deluxe in bell stand, maintenance kit and custom carrying bag. Perfect for anyone from the experienced players and students alike.

When plastic trombones, trumpets and flutes began to hit the market, the initial response was skepticism. The surprising thing is that experienced players tended to give a ringing endorsement of these instruments not only as an inexpensive instrument to learn on, but as a nice horn for a pro or an experienced player to have in his or her arsenal. The Aere ATR130 is a great sounding, good playing trumpet that is lightweight, available in cool colors, and is easy and fun to play. You'll be astonished at how good it sounds.

Developed from durable ABS plastic the AERE trumpets and trombones are lighter and more affordable than their brass counterparts, but still function as truly exceptional and versatile instruments.Like all Allora instruments, the new AERE Series is designed with True Note Technology, combining metal with ABS plastic to create structurally sound instruments with a unique blended brass instrument tone. AERE also benefits from a unique plating process that enables the instruments to radiate with an outstanding metallic finish. From the football field to the concert stage the look of these instruments get almost as much attention as the sound.

It looks like a toy and plays like a trumpet ! And a good one ! Tone is great and, what is most surprising, intonation is very good ! I compared it to my King Silver Flair which costs nine times more, and it is almost on par as far as tuning is concerned ! Only weak point: the plastic standard mouthpiece is a bit stuffy and I would suggest to replace it with a silver one, as for example Blessing which are inexpensive but still very good.

I bought this just for practicing and was excited to try it out. The 1st valve stuck down immediately and I had to pry it up. No amount of valve oil helped. The other valves worked fine. The sound and tone were pretty good, and if it had worked I would have kept it. I wasn't thrilled with the construction either. I returned it for a refund.

        This trumpet looks great and the high register notes played OK, but the low register notes didn't even sound like a tumpet. Had to return it next day. Sorry!

          Comments about Allora ATR-1301M Aere Metallic Series Plastic Bb Trumpet:

          The trumpet sounds surprisingly well. Some slides, especially the third valve slide,do not slide smoothly and the way the slide ring is designed put too much pressure on the outside tube so that make things even worst.
          Construction seems a bit fragile, especially the valve cups, top and bottom. I can see children breaking them easily, defeating one of the purposes of the trumpet, i.e. to have a robust unbreakable instrument.Intonation is good. I guess that the instrument will become more and more interesting once the new generations will be built and construction will improve.

                Comments about Allora ATR-1301M Aere Metallic Series Plastic Bb Trumpet:

                You'll be surprised at the fun you'll have with this.
                My 3rd valve is a little noisy. Also the silver trim on the 2nd valve cap didn't cover well so that the finish is spotty. So don't expect the same quality you get with a $3000+ horn.
                I intend to leave it out so I can just pick it up anytime to play some notes without having to worry about someone knocking over my pro horn.

The technology to build a playable instrument out of plastic puts music into the lives of everyone! If 2% of brass players ever go on to play professionally, then the other 98% of us should have fun with music! Take it to beach, the party,...anywhere without the worry of damaging expensive brass! For the price and playability, the Allora ATR1301 Plastic can't be beat.

                  Comments about Allora ATR-1301M Aere Metallic Series Plastic Bb Trumpet:

                  The Aere is remarkable! Valves are generally fast, although I would suggest cleaning out the ports and the valve casings due to residue left from assembling the horn. While it is not a professional quality horn, the responsiveness is okay and slotting is acceptable, although not as effortless as my 3K work horn. Played it in a wind ensemble rehearsal last night and had folks guessing which horn I was playing until they turned to look.

                  If you want a FUN, inexpensive, backup horn, this nutty plastic trumpet fits the bill. I still don't understand how it can sound as good as it does, but it does (USE YOUR OWN MOUTHPIECE, not the plastic one that comes with the horn--yuck).

                  Only thing that bugs me is a construction flaw where the bell bow attaches. SHODDY paint job right here... other than that, good job, Allora!
