OVERVIEW

Bringing back the classic design of the '60s Eterna 900.

Originally introduced in the 1960s, the Eterna 900 rapidly became the most popular of Getzen's professional trumpets.

Exceptionally free blowing with excellent intonation, the Classic will serve working musicians and serious amateurs in a variety of musical contexts.

I had read a lot about this legendary trumpet and decided that I wanted to own one. I am VERY happy with it. Just as I expected, it was very free-blowing with that bright, "lead" sound that it is known for. But when I first played it, I was surprised to find that it also has a very rich, full sound, amazingly similar to a Bach Sradivarius. Also, if you don't mind sacrificing a little range, you can use a deeper mouthpiece for a darker tone and blend in with the rest of your section if you really need to. But the real fun with this horn is letting loose and cutting through! Oh, yeah, I also want to thank Musician's Friend for the great deal on it!

I have played off and on for over 20 years. This trumpet is the best buy I have found for not only the price, but quality! This should be a starter trumpet even though it plays like a pro! Very good instrument!

      Comments about Getzen 900S Eterna Classic Series Bb Trumpet:

      I started playing trumpet in my second grade year and I used a Yamaha model. As I progressed and improved I purchased this model halfway through my 8th grade year. I was simply astounded by the improvement in my playing when switching instruments to the Getzen. I am currently in my senior year and would strongly recommend this instrument to any intermediate to advanced trumpet player. It is still serving me well after all these years and sounds just as good as when I purchased it four years ago. It is simply a beautiful looking and sounding trumpet.

      The Best Horn Made Today!

      By Bandman007

      from Charlotte, NC

      Comments about Getzen 900S Eterna Classic Series Bb Trumpet:

      After playing a Bach and a King, this is by far the best horn you can/will ever play. It is solid enough for a beginner and well made enough for any professional to play. You just have to pick it up and try it out to understand. You will not be disapointed with its sound or construction (which is still one of the only horns to NOT be made in Asia!)

      Comments about Getzen 900S Eterna Classic Series Bb Trumpet:

      You get nice horn with great tone, great responce from the valves and also at a great price. Try an equal Bach, yamaha, holton, or any other brand and you will see what I'm talking about.

      By dk61398

      from Santa Clarita, CA

      Comments about Getzen 900S Eterna Classic Series Bb Trumpet:

      I have owned this horn for over 34 years. I got it when I started high school. I was the first chair in the jazz band. The horn allowed me to hit the higher registers with power and ease. Now, I am getting back into playing and I can't think of any other horn I'd rather play! Do yourself a favor and try this horn. You won't be disappointed.

      Quality that lasts.

      Comments about Getzen 900S Eterna Classic Series Bb Trumpet:

      Purchased this instrument in 1973 and it still plays wonderfully and blows free flowing. The valves are so good that they work better then the Bach I bought in 2002. The Bach has a really good tone but is very difficult to blow with a lot of eternal pressure. Save some money and get a Getzen.

      Comments about Getzen 900S Eterna Classic Series Bb Trumpet:

      I have owned this Trumpet for a long time, it is a beautiful instrument, I love it. It has a marvelous tone that just carries throughout a piece! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a Trumpet, but I wouldn't tell someone who was just learning, a little advancement would be optimal for this horn!
