Excellent little trumpet
23.11.2015
Whilst lacking the projection of a full trumpet, it is fairly good. This instrument has a sweet sound and a fast response. The bell is quite solid, so the instrument can really be pushed without being over-blowed. Intonation is fine but not perfect; playable in a group setting though. The slots are quite wide so lip bends are easy - a bonus for jazz.

Overall quality is very good, as is the finish. The slides move well but the first valve slide is very awkward to access. The third slide tubes are also quite short and far apart which limits how far they can move without getting stuck. However as pocket trumpet go, this is as good as it gets.

As expected the valves are excellent quality. Taking the valves out and viewing a light source down the empty casing reveals a mirror-like finish in the inside, amazing! One small downside is that the first valve spring is a little noisy, but this could probably be fixed by taking it apart and putting it back together.

The case is great, really good quality.

One must note that as the instrument arrives from the factory, it should be cleaned on the inside at some point. It wasn't too bad for me but there are reports of black stuff on the inside. As a precaution I cleaned it by pumping water through.

I first bought the Thomann TR 25G pocket trumpet, but switched to this one because of intonation issues. I would recommend the reader skip this step and go for a Carol brass straight away if they can afford the extra.

Carol Brass aTop Qualitty
AxelCoug, 01.07.2017
I have the CPT-3000 for few years now.

First of, the quality is of what you find in a lot more expensive instruments. Not only the build it self, but the mechanics are smooth and so far after 3 years I never ever had a problem, no sticking valves to nothing. I appreciate I am taking care of it religiously but then again anyone having an instrument of this price should.

During the time I have it I encountered several musicians. The feedback was always positive and they were pleasantly surprised. Back when I got it some didn't know the name, but they all do today.

I also want to mention that due to some inquiry not related the CPT-3000 I had to contact the manufacturer and the reply was quick, in detail and the even shared tips for my CPT-3000. I have several items music or not from big brands and the support is terrible in most cases. Carol Brass does great in this department too.

If you can afford it, go for it. It's great value for money and the music you will get will keep it near you for years.

Pocket trumpet by Carolbrass
Robert2735, 01.05.2014
A real trumpet with a full size bell. Plays very well as a trumpet besides being a pocket instrument.Two finger rings on first and third slides, a feature not found in other makes. a usable instrument for the serious player, although not a great instrument considering the price quite unbelievable! Definitely recommend for anyone wanting a travel practise instrument or an alternative for a gig.
