I purchased this product for my son who is taking lessons. He is extremely happy with the quality and performance of this instrument. I would highly recommend this trumpet for anyone who appreciates a good deal.
I knew that Yamaha made great instruments, and when I saw this one, I decided to get it. I am ever so happy with it. It has the tone that I require as well as it's light weight. Fits nicely in my pocket trumpet as well as my cornet. This is a winner.
The horn came in a nice case, once opened, I looked at it closely and found it to be acceptable. The valves are bare metal and unplated. They are very tight and not as quick as I would like. The mouthpiece is not correctly formed, I will use my Bach 7c instead. This is the same instrument that is for sale on *** . Therein lies the rub. I spoke to an online rep. and was told that there is no price match. I merely wanted to know why it was priced *** more. There was no answer. Beware !!
