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.

Hello, all! I purchased this trumpet based on the positive reviews that many fellow musicians have left on here, as well as other websites. I bought this trumpet because I wanted to begin playing trumpet once again after my six year hiatus. I used to play trumpet in elementary school through high school and have always either played 1st or 2nd Trumpet. I have often seen this trumpet labeled as a "great beginner's trumpet," but while it is, I also argue that it is a great trumpet in general (for the price). The sound is clear and the trumpet is very easy to blow through; even after six years of not playing, I was able to belt out a c above the staff within half of week of playing on this horn! The intonation is great and the tone is vibrant, maybe a little darker than some other student horns within this price range. The valves are pretty responsive, but the first valve occasionally needs more oil, but I believe that once I break in the valves, I will oil be able to oil them less often. Coupled with the Silent Brass System, I am now able to practice the trumpet in my apartment condo! I am very satisfied with Guitar Center's customer service as well.

At first, this trumpet seems like a great deal...and it is. But that changes. After my son played his for the first few weeks of lessons, I was thinking this was a great buy. No sooner did I think that, then his 1st valve started sticking. He would clean his trumpet after EVERY lesson, and oil the valves, so I was a little shocked. I cleaned it my self and still the valve would not rebound fast enough for even 1/8th notes. All of a sudden , the valve worked great. I figured it was just a minor particle that was stuck in the body or in the valve. 6 months later, the 2nd valve had issues sticking. Again, I disassembled it and cleaned it. However, the valve itself would NOT go back in the body. It simply would jam up about 1/4 the way in. I took it to a music shop for an estimate to fix it and they flat out told me it wouldn't matter. They tried to fix some ETUDEs in the past, but the metal in the valves is really poor quality. And the problem happened time and time again. Now, it sits as a decoration in my son's room...and he is playing a Getzen and has NOT had a single problem since.

Good Trumpet for the price

By ruth siguenza

from California

Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

This trumpet is very nice. My son is taking lessons in school and I looked into renting. It was going to be $200 by the end of the year. I only spent less and now he gets to keep it. The only thing I would suggest is to have valve oil. By the second day they were getting stuck. It looks really nice and feels great. It also has a pretty good sound, well as far as I can tell with a beginning trumpet player. If you have a child that wants to learn but not sure if they will stick with it this is a perfect trumpet for the money.

      Comments about Etude ETR-100 Series Student Bb Trumpet:

      Ordered this for our son's first attempt to play a trumpet for the school band. It happened to be on sale and it was well worth the money for a brand new trumpet since renting one would end up costing us more. We also purchased the warranty. It was sent by 2 day UPS and arrived ahead of schedule. No problems so far, everything was shipped in the carrying case, which was included. It looks and sounds great, the teacher was also impressed with the quality.
