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:

I use the product in my high school's band and its a fairly decent horn. Its much easier to use than my previous horn but its a lot more delicate than my last instrument. One good bit of advice is to use this instrument with the utmost care but its definitely worth the money.

    Use this trumpet for middle school band. Just as good or better than the more expensive ones that others have. Case is also nice and very protective.

          I purchased this trumpet for my daughter because the school had provided an old beat up trumpet. Her teacher referred me to this site and I didn't hesitate to purchase it. She's had it for a month now and won't put it down. It's a great instrument for the price. I'm very impressed with this product!

            My son went from a school rental cornet to this trumpet. He is now excited to play his new trumpet and practices twice as much as before. He had done two concerts at school with the new trumpet and the sound quality is second to none.

            Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

            Bought the first trumpet when my son started band--beginner trumpet, good price. He is in the advanced band and plays a Bach Strad now, but still uses this trumpet for marching. We are now buying a second for our other son to start band this year. I would def recommend this trumpet as a beginner. The tonal quality is not like the Bach, but neither is the price!! We have had no issues with the trumpet after three years.

              I'm a woodwind, piano, and string player, and this is the first brass instrument I've ever owned. I cannot find any immediate issues with it. I honestly can't believe how good this trumpet is, for how cheap it was.

                  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.
