The association with Warburton led me to be hopeful that this was more than a toy or novelty. Sadly, this is not the case.
Pros: Decent sound through all registers. Easy blowing. Light weight. Good intonation with all valve combinations.
Cons: Balky valve action-fairly quick but not smooth. Loss of efficiency - you can feel the horn vibrating through the bell as well as the valves and bell-if you can feel it IN the horn, you're not putting it THROUGH the horn. Valves lock up in upper register-I play with a fair amount of pressure and the first thing I noticed is that the valves wouldn't release in the upper registers.
At best, this is a cheap, beginners horn. Perhaps it could be used for marching band, but I'm not sure you could get the volume needed for open air playing. There are a lot of options out there for this price point. Look at them instead!!
All around this is a great horn with some clear advantages over its brass counter-part (It is light and easy to play!).
A few helpful things to know... First, the valves did take some time to break in, but they work fine now.
Second, I am going to echo a few other reviewers and say this is not a "beginner trumpet." It has a unique sound and style that is different from a standard trumpet. If you go into it know that it WONT sound like your other trumpet, than you will be happy.
The fact that it comes with a case, mouthpiece, and all the right oils is a definite bonus.
For the price, it feels like a steal.
I was surprised at how much fun this horn was to play. Sure it's not as nice as my Yamaha Xeno, but not $2600 either. I can totally see playing it on a dixie gig, and outdoor gig, or even in an R&B band....but probably not in church. The valves took a little bit to break in, but after that they felt fine. I like that I could use my regular Bach 3C mouthpiece - which really helped me get used to it.
Couldn't WAIT to give this horn a try. It's not every day something like this comes around in the Trumpet world. As a teacher for 15+ years, I would not say this is a "beginner Trumpet" at all. This is something unique for intermediate to professionals to use in pep/marching bands, or to add color (literally) to any of your gigs. I've played on a LOT of horns over the years, and this one (for what it is) is actually not that bad. I'm enjoying mine so far; and you might, too.
