Comments about pTrumpet Plastic Bb Trumpet:

Wow! What a cool horn! This was gifted to me and wanted it for the shear novelty of it. I freelance and feel this is a nice addition for a unique sound. The horn IS plastic, but does sound very nice; and applicable in a variety of genres and situations. It's pretty consistent, and once you find the horn's "sweet spot" (really not hard to find either) you can really make this thing sing.
It's nicely made and the valve positioning is right on point for young learners for proper form. It blows very easy and reacts decently. I actually resolved to using the plastic 3C mouthpiece as it balances better with the horn.
Truly a pleasant experience that I will look forward to the shocked faces, and enjoy for a long time.

Pros

  • Big Bright Sound
  • Cheap
  • Fun
  • Fun To Play
  • Novel

Cons

  • Difficult To Play
  • Poor Construction
  • Valves Don't Last

Best Uses

    Comments about pTrumpet Plastic Bb Trumpet:

    Valves stick after a little while with no improvement possible. Without a ton of volume, the sound is dull and empty. But if you really fill it up, it sounds like a sizzling lead horn, and is very fun to play. But because the valve issue I sent mine back. If this gets solved, I might try another one. They are fun and a bit silly.

    valves are wrong period. no top caps are a problen and skinny plastic stems are going to fail. holes in caps need to be not round that whistle. funny though. tone is oddly good. strange to play. re design valves and make it possiable to clean second valve slide and it would be good. strange but good.

    • Weight Is Very Light

    Cons

    • Far Too Expensive
    • Too Expensive
    • Valves Are Very Below Par

    Best Uses

    • Nowhere While Valves Bad

    Comments about pTrumpet Plastic Bb Trumpet:

    Instrument would benefit my young grandson who appears to struggle with weight of normal trumpet. But valves are really not good enough. I've tried various solutions to problem, but none very satisfactory. For £250 this is definitely overpriced until valves are redesigned to eliminate problem. It looks fun, sounds good and I've got away with it on some gigs, but I'm really disappointed with it. Valves clunky and constantly become slow and sticky whatever I do, from using the suggested tiny amounts of supplied lube; using soapy water; dry. Dry is best but not comfortable. Have I bought a very expensive pup?

    party stunt, not a reliable instrument

    By Stomvi2

    from San Juan, Puerto Rico

    About Me Professional Musician

    Pros

    • Fun As A Toy
    • Party Stunt

    Cons

    • Huge Bore Size 464
    • Valves Fail Too Often

    Best Uses

    • Christmas Tree Ornament

    Comments about pTrumpet Plastic Bb Trumpet:

    I ordered this basically as a party favor - used it for Christmas and New Year parties and it was a hit. People loved it, and were amazed that it was plastic. However - push too much volume or play too high and it resonates and sounds like a plastic trumpet. The included care instructions for the valves did not prove useful. The valve oil did not do well, and I quickly switched to my own. I also ignored the instructions of using as little oil as possible, and treated them like any other trumpet valves. The valves were immediately much better. After a little while I noticed the middle valve was usually a little slow to pop back. I tried the valves in different casing orders, because they are interchangeable, and it only got worse. The horn is currently laying under a bed at home somewhere, as I've given up hope. It was a fun toy to mess around with for a while, but in retrospect, maybe not so much considering the current list price. Definitely not something to use on a professional gig or as a replacement for a real horn.
