      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 have been playing for a couple of months now and this is my first trumpet (Before I was renting one.) I have been taking lessons from my cousin who has been playing for nine years. When I brought this trumpet to the lesson and showed it to him he said the quality was okay and wasn't something to keep through band. The instrument is easy to play like it says in the description but the sound is not great, and the construction could be better without making the instrument more expensive.

        Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

        This trumpet certainly is not the best on the market, but it does perform well for an instrument of this level of quality. I purchased one for Marching Band and have found it to perform sufficiently so far. While I am not a beginner, I would expect this instrument to perform appropriately in a beginners ensemble as well. My only concern at this point is how long it will be before it requires more maintenance beyond just oiling valves and greasing slides. Overall a great instrument to get started on or use as an alternate horn.

          Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

          Bought for my Grandson who wanted to play trumpet in his sixth grade school band. The school had a instument rental store and they stated Yamaha, King, etc. Thirty to forty for monthly rentals. After looking at used from owners and finding the instruments always had frozen slides from not being taking care of, I decieded to get this. It was perfect. I sat my Grandson down and showed him how to oil the valves, grease the slides and general maintenance for the instrument. I made him understand that if he maintained it, it would last and the moving parts would remain fluid. I was impressed how it sounded and the quality of the build.

              We were tired of renting a trumpet for my daughter for the school band. I don't know anything about trumpets, so I was hesitant to buy one, especially in a low price range. But so far this one looks great, the case is a lot smaller & lighter to carry on the bus, and she reports that although it seems to need to be broken in a bit, will suit her needs just fine. That's good enough for me.

              Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

              I actually own 2 of these trumpets. I bought the first one in 6th grade. No issues with the horn, but the molded case was flawed. WWBW replaced the case and covered all shipping expenses. I use Fat Cat Valve Oil and Slide Grease - no problem with valves sticking. I bought a second one in 9th grade, using the first Etude for Marching Band. Marching band is pretty hard on instruments. The out door environment caused the lacquer finish to wear away. The second Etude uses Ultra-Pure Oil and Grease. Basically for Jazz Band, Symphony and Concert Band. I've been a 1st chair all my years in band with these trumpets and have also been in several Honor Bands and Symphony Orchestras. Of course it will not perform as well as a $2000 professional trumpet, but it is a much better value than renting from a local music store. The platinum coverage offered by WWBW was worth it when it was damaged during marching season - WWBW replaced it at no cost!

                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.

                        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.
