It features a high quality yellow brass body and 4.75-inch bell, which help create a brilliant tone, and the nickel silver hand slide and tuning slide provide ease of action and a durable body that can resist damage from corrosion and wear. With a medium bore of .453 inches, players will find the instrument is free-blowing and responsive. Comes with a case and a 7C mouthpiece.

Great for trumpet players hoping to learn the slide positions without adjusting to the different range, and for trombone players seeking a "soprano trombone!"

Just a really nice little bone!


This is a great little slide trumpet. Came with a mouthpiece, slide oil, and gloves. It's very well put together. My only gripe is that they screwed on the slide lock really tight. I used some of the oil to unstick it and put the lock in an appropriate place. Sounds great though!



Slide Trumpet


low quality but suitable for conversation piece



Good value


For the price it is a decent instrument - my son plays it and has a blast - A great way to pause from his more studious practicing on the Trumpet. And yes, I know it is also called a Soprano Trombone - but Slide Trumpet is so much cooler to say.



Lots of fun for a good price


This slide trumpet is definitely something to look at if you're looking for a fun instrument that's priced well. If you're a trombone player looking to play in the trumpet range, or a trumpet player looking to learn slide positions, this is definitely a fun investment! This horn is fun to play and us a conversation starter. This is a real, hands on product review by Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.

Practice is FUN!


Just plain FUN! Scacles, bass lines, whole pieces, it can handle them all with ease and it sounds GREAT! Less than $200 is a fabulous buy for this fabulous little horn that comes with a nice case. Buy 1 or 2 - you won't be sorry. It really IS that much fun for horn players AND non-musicians. :)

Just started learning trumpet with this, so any difficulties have been my own fault. Great quality, very fun. The slide can be a little inconsistent (and the problem is not slide oil), but no other problems.

Great horn, but with one small flaw.


First of all, this is a fantastic instrument. Everyone loves it, I love it, and it's a great addition to my musical repertoire. It's not just a toy; you can sound amazing on this horn with enough practice. I plan on becoming completely proficient on this little gem. One small issue is the mouthpiece. It's ever so slightly too small for the leadpipe, so you have to hold it in. I have yet to try another mouthpiece, so maybe it's just that one. Regardless of the mouthpiece issue, I would totally recommend getting this horn. This thing presents so much entertainment value for a seriously low price, and I just love it.

I've been playing trombone at fun little events for a couple years now, just dancing and jamming out nothing overly serious. But even I was a little worried by the price, like 'could an instrument really be under $200 and not be complete trash?' I got it and loved it. Tone is great, overall feel is amazing, and all my friends find it extremely entertaining and unique. Definitely pick this one up if you're just looking for a good time! No need to jump up in price to the jupiter model.
