Worth it


Amazing sound for a good price



Great Value


I was renting a Jupiter CEB trumpet for my daughter, and called the Sam Ash customer service line for guidance on an equivalent instrument to buy vs. renting. They guided me to the right instrument for a starting player, along with giving me a great price. The trumpet case was also much lighter but just as sturdy as the rental case.

Great option instead of renting


Why pay so much to rent a trumpet for a year when you can get the TR711 trumpet. If you are looking at an entry trumpet for your child that won't break the bank than you have a winner here. Stainless steel values will help this trumpet last you the school year and right up until you next trumpet. Comes with case.

Fantastic start for any aspiring trumpeter


For beginners looking to pick up a trumpet for the first time you can't go wrong with Bach. It's a quality instrument at a reasonable price and is worth every penny. It has a nice ease of play and can go from soothing and calm to rambunctious in an instant. All in all the TR711 is a great choice for students.

Great horn for a great price


For me, this is the preferred instrument for my starting students. As a trumpet player, I grew up on the Bach brand. They are consistent horns with a warm sound attributed from the lacquer and make for a fantastic horn for the beginner student. The TR711 is free blowing but also has just the right amount of resistance, smooth valves, and even provide a thumb slide for quick intonation adjustments. Absolutely love this horn and will continue recommending this one to my personal students.

Durable and Affordable


This super free-blowing horn was made with the beginner trumpet student in mind creating an easy-to-produce and even tone-quality from the top to the bottom range of the horn. The brass finish on the horn is visually very appealing and durable. It does not chip or wear quickly. The stainless steel valves prevent excessive wear and will certainly extend the viable life of the horn. This would be a great horn for any beginner trumpet student.

Great horn, Great price


The Bach Prelude TR711 is an excellent choice for the beginning player. This is a free blowing horn with heavy, good quality valves requiring minimal maintenance. Affordable and reliable, the TR711 is everything you would expect from a Bach.

Great Beginner horn at a Great Price


This trumpet is great for the beginning musician. With great tone, easy moving valves and great intonation, it's easy to see why you would pick this horn. It has good and full sound that's easy to blow through and lives up to the Bach name without the high price of their higher end. This is a real, hands on product review by Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.
