Good trumpet for melodies playing

Julian aus Z., 03.07.2016
In search of a B-trumpet with a big-band sound, I came across this instrument. This trumpet has a clear, clear sound, but it is not particularly powerful, but it is all the more beautiful and interesting because you can "paint" melodies with it. This makes playing in a smaller band fun.

From the playability it is a pleasant instrument: the air flows quite freely and the address is fast. The volume can be easily influenced. The intonation is good, but there are the typical tones that need to be corrected, but this is not a problem.

The processing is good, but not very good. The trains are tight and easy, but the water valve on the tuning cable is somewhat obliquely soldered (but works without problems), there was still a Messingspan in the mouth pipe and the Lakierung has individual small errors, which however only with very precise look up. After a short time dark patches have formed on a few spots. Also the sheet is very soft, so you have to be careful with the dampers.

Unfortunately, I had sorrows with the valves: these stuck at the beginning frequently. After a while, things are getting better. I also tried different oils: the oils of Yamaha and La Tromba did not work well for me, it was better with Hetmann 2 and the best so far was the oil "Fast" from Al Cass.

Overall, I am very satisfied with this trumpet with an excellent price / performance ratio, but hope that the valves will run better soon if they are moved a bit more.
