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

    Purchased for my son after reading positive reviews. We went to the store and after testing it, my son said it played well and sounds as good as the one he uses at school. We purchased the silver plated model which is good-looking.

    Overall I'm pleased with the purchase; however I would suggest that you carefully inspect the horn before purchasing it. The silver plate is chipped where the finger hook is welded to the horn. The 2nd valve has the number stamped in the wrong place (slightly confusing when reinserting after oiling) and the valves stick - even after cleaning and being sent to the shop for repair.

    I believe the above reflect quality control issues - so check the horn before purchasing it and you should be happy.

      Rented a used Yamaha , had to send it in for valve work twice. I bought this trumpet to use while Yamaha was in for repairs. It has never given me any problems, and still plays well after all this time

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

      every one i have bought has had lots of problems the first ones water key leaked because of a spot near the opening the had brass chipped away.also the tuning slide would spray water out towards the bell. so i returned it and then the second one i got had the treading on the first valve messed up so it was very hard to remove the slide for oiling and the valves stick alot. ultimately its a alright trumpet if your looking to learn to play but not really anything more than that

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

        Seriously, I enjoyed playing this trumpet (the silver finish) more than all the others displayed at the local Sam Ash, including Yamaha and Bach pro horns. Of course, this is just my personal opion. It is a solid horn (no lightweight piece of junk) I love the styling, from the beautiful 5" rose brass bell to even the mouthpiece receiver. I use it quietly in my apartment for smooth-jazzy stuff, and when a take it to a large hall to practice classical stuff it just sings.

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

        I have been playing trumpet off and on for about 30 years. I have had all the common brands, Conn, Yamaha, Holton, Getzen, and 3 Benges (1 LA and 2 Burbank). Financial reasons required me to sell my last beloved Benge, but I needed a recreational horn. Was trying to avoid a "Chinese" horn, but even the cheaper Bachs are imported from China. I tried a starter Bach, and it wasn't very free in the mid-range. [...] I was expecting alot of back pressure and intonation problems because of the price, but it was better then the Bach. I took time to play 3 different horns of the same model, and bought the most free. No two horns play alike, so take your time... Is it a Strad, Benge, Pro grade Yamaha, or Kanstul? NO! Will it do the job for a beginner, recreational player, or even used as a dedicated marching horn to save on your primary? YES! Not the best horn I have ever played, but far from the worse! Good luck, and support the arts in public schools!

        I use this trumpet every weekday in my school band. It's great I always hear people say they like my trumpet. The only thing that I hate is the case that is kinda bulky, other than that would recommend this trumpet.
