We are so pleased with this trumpet. We rented a trumpet for the school year for our 10 year old-- to purchase that trumpet it would have been another $800. He loves this one and it sounds very good. We are not able to hear a difference between this one and the expensive school rental. Also, the silver color is really cool!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality

I bought this as a Christmas present for my 13 year-old daughter who is in the 7th grade and her 2nd year of band. She loves it. The sound is just as good, if not better than the over-priced rental that we had. It's a beautiful trumpet and comes with a pair of white gloves and mouthpiece. The case is very sturdy and can be carried in the traditional fashion or as a backpack. It was an excellent buy and she couldn't be happier.
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Overstock says they cannot disclose the brand. In the FAQs an associate even answered that the trumpet has no brand or model number ... not true. I purchased this based on the rave reviews. However, this is a low end trumpet. It may be great for beginning band. After I received it and saw the brand, I found it cheaper on another site. I plan to contact customer service to see if they will price match. If I keep it, I'm hoping it serves its purpose of being a nice playing, inexpensive trumpet for a beginner band student. I just wish it was competitively priced and that Overstock.com would have disclosed this information so that I would not have purchased at the higher price (the shipping was free.)
We are so very happy to find this instrument. We bought it for our son's 11th b-day present. We had been looking everywhere for one, since he got serious and asked us for his own. Music stores were pricey, or had rent-to-own instruments that were used and damaged. This one is so shiny and clear sound abounds. Plus, as a bonus the case is the molded kind with shoulder strap!!! We couldn't be happier!!
The trumpet was absolutely beautiful, it was especially nice to see the care in the packaging and presentation inside the case.
However some two of the damper levers didn't retract back to a normal position quickly enough to produce the sound of the next note.
We may have been able to ship it back, but the repair cost would have been too great.
Great grammer school trumpet. Almost identical to rental, but at a quarter of the cost. Sorry I did not buy this a year ago and would have saved 12 months of $45 monthly payments. Sounds and looks great.
