Comments about Getzen 940 Eterna Series Bb/A Piccolo Trumpet:
This is my first piccolo trumpet, and likely my last. It is well made, the valves are fast, and the finish is flawless. I had heard that these instruments were hard to play, but I found that it sounded great right out of the box. There was no more backpressure than from my 1954 vintage Martin Committee Model. The high notes came easily, but I will need more practice to control them. It has an incredible tone. I had tried another brand in a music store, and found it stuffy with a tone like a cornet. I had almost decided not to buy a piccolo trumpet because of that, but decided to try this one. All in all, it was far more than I had imagined. I recommend it highly. Now, how will Night in Tunesia sound on it?
