With its impressive and striking black nickel finish, the Allora MXPT-5801-BK pocket trumpet brings quality construction, portability, and playability to a Bb trumpet made compact by its tightly wound tubing. The result is a shorter horn that retains the standard trumpet's dynamic range as well as its power.
Originally aimed at children and beginners, travelling musicians adopted the small pocket trumpets for their convenience when they were first offered in the 19th century. If you unwind its tubing, a pocket trumpet is virtually the same length as a standard Bb trumpet. Its sound is similar, with a cutting projection that gives the pocket trumpet an advantage in noisy venues or as an ensemble instrument. With the bell closer to your ears, you hear yourself better with a pocket trumpet. You will also have a much easier time reaching the bell when using a trumpet mute, and you are likely to get lots of attention wherever you play.
Until recently, pocket trumpets were available as either low-end, difficult-to-play instruments, or as expensive-but-quality horns with a price that was difficult for an amateur musician to justify—with very few instruments in between.
The Allora black nickel MXPT-5801-BK pocket trumpet is manufactured in the spirit of old world techniques using the latest technologies in modern facilities. While available at a very reasonable price, the Allora pocket trumpet meets high-quality instrument standards.
An outstanding value for an artist-level instrument, each Allora black nickel pocket trumpet is built with excellent intonation. The pocket horn's yellow brass leadpipe and yellow brass bell add warmth to the trumpet's rich, full sound. With genuine black nickel-plating—rather than a less durable lacquer—the easy-to-play Allora pocket trumpet offers you rich, brilliant tonality; stellar projection; and true trumpet intonation.
The Allora pocket trumpet is equipped with stainless steel valves, a third-valve slide ring, 2 water keys, 3 stainless steel pistons, and it accepts a 7C trumpet mouthpiece. The pocket trumpet has a .459" bore, a 3-2/3" bell and a standard leadpipe. Lacquered brass on some of the slide curves accents the trumpet's dramatic black finish.
The Allora pocket trumpet has a warm sound and a voice-like articulation that make it a great solo instrument. The convenience of a trumpet that is lighter to carry and hold—and that can easily be stowed in a carry-on bag—makes the Allora MXPT-5801-BK great for practice and a fun instrument for any trumpet player. This pocket trumpet is well worthy of consideration by beginners and younger players as well.
