OVERVIEW

Very nice student horn, built for small hands but looks and sounds all grown up.

The Etude ETR-100 Student Trumpet's generous bore makes it easy for a beginner to play while learning to form notes accurately. Equipped with a beautiful red brass lead pipe, it is nice-looking and crafted both for easy tone production and great projection.

A mouthpiece and case are included.

I have been playing for over 20 years of & currently attend grad school at a local university, where I occasionally perform with the marching & pep bands. I did not wish to use my pro horn in the athletic environment. So I ordered the ETR 100 more out of curoisty than any thing, after all how good can a $100 trumpet be? I was pleasantly surprised when it was of equal quality to the "name" brand student trumpets that many of our undergrads use for marching.. The fit & finish is excellent the valve alignment good, & the case is quite nice. I would recommend up grading the mouthpiece after the beginner has some tunes under his or her belt, but this is a niggle as the provided MP is adequate. If care is taken this horn should see the average student through high school. I could easily play this horn in lower level concert ensembles with no noticeable intonation difficulties or tonal shortcomings. The advance player, planning on a music major or playing in a select concert or jazz group will want a more advanced instrument at some point, but this is more than adequate for most players. This would also make a excellent budget upgrade for older adults that may still be playing on "vintage" student models that lack adjustable slides and other modern features. Highly Recommended!

Upon receiving after 1 year warrant the 2nd valve where it is cold soldered separated, had to be re-cold-soldered. Next Issue: The 3rd valve guide has worn out. Unlike other brands you can not go to a music store and purchase this item. All suppliers of this item say that it is an in house brand and after warranty they can not order the parts. Essentially the horn is now worthless. This was one of my students trumpets, I will let them use one of my Bach's until a replacement can be found. Would not recommend to parents as a first horn.

Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

Beautiful instrument with good sound. Unfortunately I've had the instrument only 5 months and I recently spent about $50 on repairs due to sticky valves, and leaking water keys seals. It's still a bargain for a beginning instrument.

Very good for beginners

Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

I got this trumpet when I was in 4th grade and it worked perfect. Great price for what you get. Good tone. I still use this trumpet but I'm in high school now and it's getting old. Keep in mind I've had it for six years, I mean I could probably use it for another six years but I'm getting old and ready for an upgrade because the tone isn't as good as I want it to be for high school and college. Overall though it's a great trumpet and I would recommend it to anyone thinking about learning how to play the trumpet.

    Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

    This is a great trumpet that will serve the purpose if you have a budding student, learning to play the trumpet. We rented one for about a year at over $30/month. At the beginning of the second year we found this trumpet and now it has paid for itself already.

      Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

      I bought this trumpet for my son as I tried to convinced him to join the jr. high beginning band. i didn't want to spend too much in case he didn't like it. now he's in his 2nd year & he's 1st trumpet in advanced band. He absolutely loves band & practices almost everyday by his own choice! Onto the horn review. I myself have played horns since my sons age so i'm quite familiar with what a good student horn should be like. as well as still having friends who play trumpet professionally. I would have to say after about 1-1/2 years of my son playing this horn, it has stood the test of durability & play-ability. The horn has been more than broken in. i have had ZERO issues with it. In fact, i just learned this week that the cork on the spit valve came off. this is quite normal wear & tear & i'm surprised t didn't happen sooner with the amount of use & spit my son produces combined! I just tested the valve action prior to writing this review. Let me tell you, it's flawless! the springs are not as soft as i prefer but for a student horn & price, i was expecting it to be rough by now. the action is close to pro horn quality minus the stiffer spring. as all kids do, he's dropped it a few times. i know because i had to bend back the dents on the bell. it was NOT easy & my thumbs are still a little sore. the metal is pretty solid! the playability is excellent! I heard him go through the beginnings of learning to play whole note to being able to play high C above the staff. So if you had any doubts if this horn will work well for your child's progression, the answer is yes & yes on more time! All of the other kids in class easily payed more than double & did not have the same quality horn. His teacher had a list of acceptable horns. this wasn't on it, the others were def more than $300 & his teacher liked it as well. he still has no clue how much i paid for it. I will leave you with this. as an engineer, PLEASE follow the "break in" instructions. Because of the horn price, there probably isn't a whole lot of budget left over to have someone to polish off all the micro-shavings left over from the production process. you can't see it, you can't feel it, but it's there. I was VERY anal about this break in process & highly believe this is why the valve action is above par. So be patient & diligent to do it as instructed & it will pay off for years to come!
