A lot of work goes into making a great-quality brass instrument. Players have high standards, and rightfully so. To put it simply, an instrument that's made better sounds better. It's a principle that Getzen knows well, and one that guides the manufacturing of all the instruments you'll find here in their collection. With a solid variety to choose from, any musician can find a Getzen instrument that's just right.
Choosing the perfect Getzen trumpet or cornet is all about finding the instrument that matches your skill level and musical tastes. For instance, the 390 Series Student Bb Trumpet is the perfect candidate for a young musician's first trumpet, complete with nice touches that raise the bar on entry-level, such as nickel-plated pistons and a hand-spun seamless bell. If you're a seasoned professional, consider the high-end 3003 Genesis Custom Series Bb Trumpet, which is designed with a swappable leadpipe and other adjustments that allow Getzen to describe it as their most versatile model.

Moving on through the Getzen instruments, you'll find several excellent flugelhorns, a baritone horn and plenty of trombones. The 1052FD Eterna Series Bass Trombone is just one example, and a good one at that. It's distinguished by its special valve system, designed to make the second rotor available without the need to pass through the F. Impressively responsive and adaptable, the 1052FD is a prime sample of the thoughtfulness that Getzen designs are known for.
Of course, there is more to owning a trumpet, cornet, horn or trombone than the instrument alone. Getzen rounds out their product offerings with rotor, valve and slide oils, tuning slides and valve servicing kits to help you keep your instrument looking and sounding like new. There are even some trim kits available to give trumpet valves a little cosmetic facelift and personalized touch. From the instruments themselves to a range of supplies to help with maintenance, Getzen has all the basics accounted for. All that's left is for you to decide where you're going to get started adding Getzen to your brass collection.
