Great Trumpet!
05.10.2016
A really wonderful playing Bb trumpet for an extremely good price. A full sound from a Bach 72 style bell. The valves are smooth, the slides work perfectly.
The intonation is spot on and the blow with the reversed lead pipe is very open and free.

Pros:
Good Sound
Good Intonation
Great Value
Multiple Tuning Slides let you alter the blow.
Free and open upper register
Exceptional build quality.

Cons:
The cons are purely personal preferences, not anything to do with the trumpet itself.


For me, the blow is a little too open for some more delicate kinds of music... For example, playing the Haydn concerto on this is doable but probably harder work than it needs to be to maintain that focused, dolce tone you want and to not put too much air through it above the staff. A classical trumpet player would be better served with a standard lead pipe and Carol's Standard size bell, like the 5060H-GSS (or YSS).

However, as a jazz trumpet, and for guys playing a lot of loud music with smaller or tighter mouthpieces, this would balance very nicely and produce a great sound.

CarolBrass is a brand you really should try when looking for a new trumpet!

Carol 5000L-YLS bargain classical horn
Paul014, 10.01.2014
The CarolBrass CTR5000L-YLS seemed to respond slower than my expensive lightweight trumpet but made a superb hall filling sound. Its very even blowing, well in tune and the valves are fast. I prefer it with the D slide fitted, the round slide had a dry cork and slightly out of parallel tubes - so it was not all perfectly made, but for this low price? The large bell is great. Everything fits tightly and the trumpet was only slightly dirty inside on arrival. This was a massive bargain. Thank you Thomann!

Versatile professional-standard trumpet at great price
16.11.2013
This is a big trumpet. Although Carol says it has a light body, the bell is a full weight. The bell is a full 5", slow 72 taper. Combined with the reverse tuning slide, this makes for a very free-blowing instrument. Even more free-blowing if you use the curved rather than the square slide (both provided with the trumpet). So if you want small, don't buy this.
The volume and quality of sound is excellent. Intonation is fine. Can be used as lead commercial trumpet or orchestral, solo, concert band, anything.
Carol valve action is excellent, tolerances are very tight so keep regularly oiled with light oil like Pure or Hetmans 1.
Very good build quality to this instrument. cannot find any serious quality compromise except thin(?) lacquer (one bald spot after 15 months of playing).
Nice case but did not like Carol. mouthpiece
Despite the low price, this could easily be the main trumpet of choice for even an advanced player.

Great ... but 1st pistons keeps hanging
Charlie (Belgium), 19.12.2017
Bought this trumpet for occasional playing outdoors & places where I rather not take my good trumpet. It's a nice looking trumpet with a good grip and a very good tone for that price. On delivery the first piston kept blocking ... Re-sent it to Thoman for a check-up. Seemed fine for a moment when it came back, but didn't really fix it. It quite oftens hangs when I play ... Too bad. Would have given it 4 stars otherwise ...
