Overview

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.

Just bought the Etude for my son, who is starting school band this year. Best I can tell, it is a beautiful trumpet with a really solid sound, and a great hardshell case. Really a tremendous deal for a beginning instrument!

I bought this for my son to play in the orchestral band. After picking it up for less than half what it currently sells for, I thought it was a great deal based on the reviews.

Then a few weeks after he was playing it, he complained that the valves were sticking all the time, and his band instructor suggested we consider another trumpet. Since I had the 2 year extended warranty, I called Musician's Friend and they were very helpful in replacing it with a new one at no charge to me.

Unfortunately, the exact same thing happened with the second one. My son and his band instructor worked on the valves, cleaning, oiling with very good oil, etc. Nothing permanently helped. Two horns that do the exact same thing told me that any further replacements would be futile.

It was a good trumpet to learn whether or not my son would stick with playing the trumpet. Now that we know he will for the next 4 years, it's time to retire this and get him a durable one.

If you're looking for a "see if I like it" trumpet, this is a good starter. If you already know you'll be sticking with the trumpet, I'd strongly suggest looking at better quality, non-Chinese models.

Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

I use the product in my high school's band and its a fairly decent horn. Its much easier to use than my previous horn but its a lot more delicate than my last instrument. One good bit of advice is to use this instrument with the utmost care but its definitely worth the money.

        I purchased this trumpet for my daughter because the school had provided an old beat up trumpet. Her teacher referred me to this site and I didn't hesitate to purchase it. She's had it for a month now and won't put it down. It's a great instrument for the price. I'm very impressed with this product!

            My son went from a school rental cornet to this trumpet. He is now excited to play his new trumpet and practices twice as much as before. He had done two concerts at school with the new trumpet and the sound quality is second to none.

              Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

              Bought the first trumpet when my son started band--beginner trumpet, good price. He is in the advanced band and plays a Bach Strad now, but still uses this trumpet for marching. We are now buying a second for our other son to start band this year. I would def recommend this trumpet as a beginner. The tonal quality is not like the Bach, but neither is the price!! We have had no issues with the trumpet after three years.

                I'm a woodwind, piano, and string player, and this is the first brass instrument I've ever owned. I cannot find any immediate issues with it. I honestly can't believe how good this trumpet is, for how cheap it was.
