      Comments about Jean Baptiste 483LE Deluxe Engraved Student Trumpet (Assorted Finishes):

      This trumpet is exactly what people have said about it and more! It is awesome! I believe that this is one of, if not the best, affordable starter trumpet out there. The trumpet is nicely made and has a sound that can go from being very dark and warm to being light and bright. I would recommend this for any beginning student that doesn't want to break the bank!

              My daughter just joined the school band, so I had to get her a trumpet. A friend recommended this one for her and at such a low price, I was curious so I went with her to try it out. She fell in love with it instantly. It comes with the mouthpiece and ontop of that, I premium case for her to take it to school with. You don't expect much from piece like this especially at such a low price but the quality is beyond excellent. I recommend it to anybody who needs to get their kid a quality instrument but doesn't wanna break the bank.

                    The 483 is a good beginner trumpet, no more or less. It has a solid middle register, the register most often played by beginning trumpeters. Above a high E the sound starts sounding pinched, however most younger students won't be needing that kind of range.

                    One thing that does set the JB-483 apart however is the inclusion of a rose brass leadpipe and bell. This gives a slightly warmer sound than most purely brass laquered trumpets, and definitely more pleasant for parents to listen to as the student practices! Most students are not introduced to different building materials for brass instruments until high school, and this student trumpet gives a wonderful opportunity for discussions in the different qualities of materials used in brass instrument construction.
