      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 for my son to play in the orchestral band. After picking it up for less than half what it currently sells for, I thought it was a great deal based on the reviews.

      Then a few weeks after he was playing it, he complained that the valves were sticking all the time, and his band instructor suggested we consider another trumpet. Since I had the 2 year extended warranty, I called Musician's Friend and they were very helpful in replacing it with a new one at no charge to me.

      Unfortunately, the exact same thing happened with the second one. My son and his band instructor worked on the valves, cleaning, oiling with very good oil, etc. Nothing permanently helped. Two horns that do the exact same thing told me that any further replacements would be futile.

      It was a good trumpet to learn whether or not my son would stick with playing the trumpet. Now that we know he will for the next 4 years, it's time to retire this and get him a durable one.

      If you're looking for a "see if I like it" trumpet, this is a good starter. If you already know you'll be sticking with the trumpet, I'd strongly suggest looking at better quality, non-Chinese models.

        I purchased this for a special young man at my church. He has been trying to save money for it. When I surprised him with it, he just hugged it and cried, "My trumpeta!" (He's Mexican)

          I purchased this for my child to have a trumpet at home so she wouldn't have to drag her other one back and forth to school. I was very shocked and pleased when it arrived to find it was just as good as the one at school that we paid almost ten times as much for. I would definitely recommend this trumpet to other parents that have kids that want to take band at school.

                    I checked that I am a pro musician. We'll, yes, but I am but no I didn't buy this for me... I am not even a horn player. I bought this for my 9 year old son who is starting to take band class. He picked trumpet. Which was a wise choice for him, as he can really get those tones out, almost like a natural. I checked out rental deals from local music stores, and the cheapest was eighty smackers per semester. And those were used, beat up horns, all student models of course. So for a Ben Franklin and an Andy Jackson, I ordered this baby, and he can keep it! I read reviews on this prior to buying it and they were almost all good, so I went for it. Using the MF credit card, at an Andy Jackson and one Lincoln per mo with no interest for 1 year... and this will be paid of in half a year at that rate. Such ah deal! It does sound really good, I must add... Of course, its no Selmer or Bundi or Yamaha.. but hey.. I recommend it for the rank beginner any day! Came with a hardshell case with cushioned insides, too!

                      This trumpet is a very worthwhile purchase for beginners or intermediate players. It comes with a polishing cloth, 7C mouthpiece, and hard-shell case (you probably already knew that). However, one of the only problems with the setup was the interior of the case, the part around the bell. Apparently the padding material wasn't glued in very well in that area, so it takes some jimmying to properly close the case. Other than that (minor) issue, I was very impressed. The trumpet plays well, it's very well made (especially for the price), and overall it's just a good deal.
