All the Looks and Sounds of the Pricey Brands!

By 

from Las Vegas

Staff Reviewer

Pros

  • Beautiful Sound and Feel
  • Looks as Snazzy as the $1000 Models
  • Pro-Inspired Water Keys & Valve Caps

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Concert Band / Orchestra
    • Jazz & Marching Bands
    • Step-Up Trumpet from Basic

    At a distance, this trumpet could easily be confused for a competing brand- and even up close, one may have a hard time distinguishing between this killer step-up horn and those expensive name-brand models. Tone quality and timbre are phenomenal- comparable only to other horns new for $1000+.

    Serious Student Horn

    By 

    from Canoga Park, CA

    Staff Reviewer

    This might be my favorite trumpet under a thousand dollars. It is a student model, but it's really top notch. I think a horn player would be happy with this instrument through middle school and maybe even high school, so it's a great investment for someone starting out, especially if they're really excited about learning. The action is really smooth, the parts are really well made, and the sound is really resonant.

      This is a great trumpet for the price! Great for beginners or intermediate players. This one offers an inexpensive option for a very usable and good sounding trumpet. I would recommend that anyone in the market for a trumpet check one of thee out, they will be pleasantly surprised.

        Nothing compares to Jean Baptiste when it comes to making high quality instruments at the lowest price. This is an intermediate trumpet- it's perfect for the student looking for a "step-up" and not wanting to spend a fortune. It also comes with a nice case and a bunch of accessories!

        The Jean Baptiste line of instruments have really come a long way in the past several years. The 512 series trumpet is at a great price point for those starting out or even someone who wants a second piece. The quality is fine and I have seen some that play much nicer than the more expensive one's out there. I haven't seen a student who plays it and becomes discouraged later. Even some professionals out there recommend and use them as well.

          Affordable Trumpet from Jean Baptiste that plays great and looks the part as well. The silver plating gives this Trumpet a versatile sound with a lovely timbre. The case is of a solid build too.
