A quality trumpet for a beginner's price.
The Etude ETR-100 Student Trumpet's generous bore makes it easy for a beginner to play while learning to form notes accurately. You'll be heard on your ETR-100 trumpet whether you're performing on stage or with your marching band thanks to the Etude trumpet's red brass lead pipe—crafted for easy tone production and great projection.
More trumpet players drop the instrument in the first year or two than in any other. Oftentimes, the reasons are as much mechanical as they are musical. With the Etude ETR-100, a satisfying bleat often pops out of the end of the horn within the first couple of attempts. Then, as the valves become less of a mystery, you can count on smooth action and precise note slotting.
And that's how it all begins. These little victories early on in a student's playing are critical to developing a generally positive association with the horn. If the trumpet is seen as an intimidating, uncooperative hunk of metal, practice time will create feelings of intimidation and irritation. If the trumpet is seen as that really cool-looking, really loud thing that my parents got for me, well, that's a different story altogether.
The Etude ETR-100 Trumpet is built to be securely handled by small or inexperienced hands with a first-valve thumb saddle and an adjustable third valve finger ring. These enhancements also make the Etude ETR-100 more comfortable to hold, allowing novice performers to pay more attention to intonation.
Etude includes a mouthpiece and case with every ETR-100 student trumpet, making it an even more outstanding value.
