Overview

Allora's AERE Series of composite trumpets are lightweight, affordable and surprisingly robust instruments, viable for beginners, intermediate students and beyond. Designed with True Note Technology, they combine metal with ABS plastic to create a structurally sound instrument with a unique blended brass instrument tone. These trumpets are available in 11 different colors including metallic finishes exclusive to AERE. This item consists of a dropdown that shows all of the metallic finishes. Choose the one that suits you best.

They are the only plastic trumpets which feature true stainless steel valves (just like their brass counterparts). Weighing in at half the weight of brass trumpets, it is a perfect solution for musicians looking to shed a few pounds. The complete AERE Trumpet Package includes a mouthpiece, deluxe in bell stand, maintenance kit and custom carrying bag. Perfect for anyone from the experienced players and students alike.

When plastic trombones, trumpets and flutes began to hit the market, the initial response was skepticism. The surprising thing is that experienced players tended to give a ringing endorsement of these instruments not only as an inexpensive instrument to learn on, but as a nice horn for a pro or an experienced player to have in his or her arsenal. The Aere ATR130 is a great sounding, good playing trumpet that is lightweight, available in cool colors, and is easy and fun to play. You'll be astonished at how good it sounds.

Developed from durable ABS plastic the AERE trumpets and trombones are lighter and more affordable than their brass counterparts, but still function as truly exceptional and versatile instruments.Like all Allora instruments, the new AERE Series is designed with True Note Technology, combining metal with ABS plastic to create structurally sound instruments with a unique blended brass instrument tone. AERE also benefits from a unique plating process that enables the instruments to radiate with an outstanding metallic finish. From the football field to the concert stage the look of these instruments get almost as much attention as the sound.

It looks like a toy and plays like a trumpet ! And a good one ! Tone is great and, what is most surprising, intonation is very good ! I compared it to my King Silver Flair which costs nine times more, and it is almost on par as far as tuning is concerned ! Only weak point: the plastic standard mouthpiece is a bit stuffy and I would suggest to replace it with a silver one, as for example Blessing which are inexpensive but still very good.

I bought this just for practicing and was excited to try it out. The 1st valve stuck down immediately and I had to pry it up. No amount of valve oil helped. The other valves worked fine. The sound and tone were pretty good, and if it had worked I would have kept it. I wasn't thrilled with the construction either. I returned it for a refund.

Grandson is going to love it!

Comments about Allora ATR-1301M Aere Metallic Series Plastic Bb Trumpet:

I bought this plastic trumpet as aChristmas gift for a very talented musical grandson. It's wrapped and ready, so he has not played it yet or I would give this item 5 stars. My 4 star rating is based on the look and feel of the trumpet. We bought him a pbone two years ago in metallic red and he loved it. We ordered the trumpet in metallic red and it's beautiful. The case is very well made. I think he will be very happy with it.

            Comments about Allora ATR-1301M Aere Metallic Series Plastic Bb Trumpet:

            After a misled adventure with the terrible customer service associates through and through the trumpet arrived to me broken. The metallic finish was chipping off around the valve covers in addition to the upper finger rest arriving at the bottom of the plastic bag it was packaged in. I never got the opportunity to even try the instrument for myself and never will since I am returning this item promptly and will not buy from this manufacturer again. As it is customer service about did me in for doing any business with guitar center either. Personally I suggest that if you care about playing music you will not buy this instrument. The only thing I can compliment is the concept.. a student bundle and a really cool look..... built like trash!!

            One of the better plastic trumpets out there. (Tried most of them). Perfect for warm up and travel horn. The only drawback is sometimes the plastic valve caps break when lubricating the valves. Allora needs to do something with the plastic grooves on the valve caps. Otherwise great plastic fun.

              Comments about Allora ATR-1301M Aere Metallic Series Plastic Bb Trumpet:

              I purchased this as a travel horn, rather than risk damage/loss to my stradivarius. Overall, the horn is okay and I enjoy practicing with it. The quality isn't great as I have had cosmetic issues with the chrome (purchased black and chrome model). Of course, Musician's Friend gladly shipped me a replacement (one valve cap was crooked and finish was chipping off). The replacement was much worse. Main tuning slide is frozen in place (maybe glued accidentally) and renders the horn useless. All three valve caps are rough and the chrome is questionable. Keeping in mind that this horn was inexpensive, it's still not a bad deal. Those working in the factory should just put a little more pride in what they are making.Because of the low price I would recommend, but just don't expect a great product.

              Comments about Allora ATR-1301M Aere Metallic Series Plastic Bb Trumpet:

              The Aere is remarkable! Valves are generally fast, although I would suggest cleaning out the ports and the valve casings due to residue left from assembling the horn. While it is not a professional quality horn, the responsiveness is okay and slotting is acceptable, although not as effortless as my 3K work horn. Played it in a wind ensemble rehearsal last night and had folks guessing which horn I was playing until they turned to look.

              If you want a FUN, inexpensive, backup horn, this nutty plastic trumpet fits the bill. I still don't understand how it can sound as good as it does, but it does (USE YOUR OWN MOUTHPIECE, not the plastic one that comes with the horn--yuck).

              Only thing that bugs me is a construction flaw where the bell bow attaches. SHODDY paint job right here... other than that, good job, Allora!
