The Getzen 490S USA Advanced Student Grade Bb trumpet has been the choice of beginning brass players for a number of years. Although they are entry-level instruments in the Getzen product line, the 490S trumpet is far superior to what most manufacturers would consider a "student" instrument. 

The Getzen 490S features nickel-silver inside slide tubing and hand spun, seamless gold brass bell with wire reinforced rim, making this trumpet durable enough to stand up to the demands of a classroom setting. In addition to these features, the 490S trumpet come standard with a gold brass leadpipe that prevents corrosion. 

The Getzen 490S is also built around nickel plated, nickel silver pistons that are made to the same quality standards as the top line Getzen instruments. The 490S valves have a lifetime guarantee. The Getzen 490S Bb trumpet includes a soft-sided case and mouthpiece.
