      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.

      Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

      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.

            This was a purchase for a granddaughter to begin learning to play. She lives in another state and the trumpet was sent directly to her. She was enormously surprised that it was early and in such great condition. She knew I was haunting many pawn shops to find a trumpet for her to start with. But they were trashed by their previous owners and priced not much lower than this 'off the shelf' intermediate trumpet. I hesitate to purchase instruments off the net, but this was an amazing experience and the best part was that if either of us was not satisfied it could be returned in 45 days. We're not returning this one!

                    I bought this trumpet for my 14 year old son, who plays French horn in high school, but wants to play trumpet as well because he thinks it is more fun. Neither of us know anything about what makes a brass instrument good or bad, but we are both very impressed with this trumpet. The valves work perfectly, it sounds great, and the pitch seems fine to us. It looks great. And the price, with free shipping, can't be beat. It is certainly not a toy; it is a real musical instrument.

                      I am a parent and a Bass player, but I purchased this trumpet for my 6th grader who is new to the band, and the trumpet. This is a switch from the drums and piano, so there is some prior musical background. The price was excellent and the band director says it is a great instrument. My kid loves it and you can't beat that.
