      Wow. I picked this horn up as a travel horn when I don't want to risk taking my regular horn on vacation with me. With my regular mouthpiece it sounds just great. What a surprise. Nice pretty horn, well slotted, a little stuffy and stiff (no more than many much pricier horns), but keeps a good dark focused in-tune tone through all the dynamic levels in all ranges. (No fun with the mouthpiece that ships, get something you can put some air through.)

      I bought this trumpet for my son so he doesn't have to carry the expensive one from school to home and back :) After seeing all the good reviews about this trumpet I thought it would be a great idea. It wasn't!!! The third valve always gets stuck (even after cleaning it before the first use, like most of the customers recommended). When playing the trumpet there's always a wired sound (like there's water in it) even there isn't. Not happy at all :( I'm not even sure if they will take it back (didn't try it yet, but will). So much for ordering online. Advice: Go to a real music store where you have the chance to try the musical instrument.
      Have to gave it a one star for the review even it is a 0 !!!!!!!

      Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

      Though I am a professional musician, I must be clear that my experience playing trumpet, and specifically this trumpet,is only a few months. I am primarily a guitarist, but I consider myself a multi-instrumentalist. I did have some general knowledge of the trumpet before I began playing thanks to my educational background and my many brass-playing friends.

      That said, if you are looking for a high-end instrument, this isn't it, HOWEVER that does not mean that this trumpet is bad. As a matter of fact, I have been playing this trumpet for three months now and I am impressed.

      When you first take this trumpet out of the box, you will need to clean and re-oil the valves. The valves were sticky when I first un-boxed my trumpet. I expected as much because the instrument A) was cold from riding in the back of the delivery truck, and B) who knows how long it sat between the time it was manufactured and the time it ended up on my doorstep. Cleaning and oiling the valves is easy and you should do this regularly even on expensive trumpets. I think about it this way: valve oil is cheap; damage due to dry valves is expensive!

      The mouthpiece it comes with may be a bit on the small side for me as far as cup diameter, but overall it is reasonably comfortable and reasonably easy to play through.

      The bottom line: I like this trumpet, and I enjoy playing it. It is nothing fancy, but in my honest opinion, it can hold its own against any other trumpet out there. Overall, the build quality is solid, the intonation is solid, and the sound is clear. I am very happy with this instrument!

        Arfived in grat condiotion. The middle button, however, gets "stuck" and doesn't come up right away after pushing it unlike the other buttons. Other than that, this has no flaws.

              Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

              We bought this trumpet for my 7th grade son. He has been playing French Horn for a year in the school band, and recently started playing trumpet in Jazz Band.

              This trumpet has been great for him to learn on. I'm not a trumpet player myself (though I play other instruments), but overall it sounds good and my son likes it better than the trumpet they had originally lent him at school.

              It seems like a good instrument for the price. We've had no issues with the trumpet. I am happy with the purchase and would do it again.

                    Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

                    I received this trumpet to get back into playing after many years of not having played. My sample has no defects with valves or anything. The 1st and 3rd valve slides move easily. Its very light weight, and the finish looks great. My only complaint is that the case is too exact of a fit, meaning you need to fully pull in the tuning slide. Not a big deal, but a little annoying.

                    As far as how it plays, it compares well to the Bundy that I had, but the metal seems to be of a thinner gauge which may make it more prone to denting. For someone that is generally careful, it shouldn't be a problem, if not, seek a beginner trumpet with a thinker gauge. On the other hand the sound is good and will serve its purpose in getting me back into trumpet. One thing to do is to replace the valve oil that comes applied with something better, and you'll notice a difference (not that its bad, just a little slow). When i'm back at a good proficiency level I'll apply my saving towards a good Bach Chicago, Kanstul or Yamaha Xeno.
