Superb
Michael2564, 19.02.2014
This horn has exceeded my expectations.

I bought this as a backup to my main horn, which is still the position it inhabits, but that is largely down to personal attachment as well as the work I do and how I play. I like a very resistant setup, and the only part that doesn't click for me is the slightly more open ML blow this horn offers. I must stress that this is personal preference. This horn has a fabulous sound, responds with great ease and projects incredibly well. I played it exclusively for 2 months to get a good representation of this instrument, and so far I have led several students to buy theirs from Carol as I believe there is no finer trumpet at this price.

What I liked:

Fabulous sound. Like a Bach 72 but with the compact focus of a good 37.
Very good intonation. Light years better than my Conn 60B.
Incredible stainless steel valves.
Valve ports are plated!
2 tuning slides ('square' and D shaped) - I preferred the square shape as it added resistance and made the slots much more secure. The sound of the D shaped slide was more broad, and I preferred that in a jazz solo context.
Light and heavy springs - I preferred the light springs as the valves were impeccible and responded lightning fast.
Projection and volume with little effort.
Heavy and strong core to a sound rich in overtones.
Fit and finish is as good as any £3000+ horn.
Lacquer was impeccible.
Slides are responsive and fit very well.

The case supplied is practical, has backpack straps and offers excellent protection.

I cannot recommend this horn enough. I'm glad there is a horn I can guarantee my students will last through any professional career and it is at a price point where it is easily affordable, whereas looking back 10 years there was nothing of this standard at this price.

I find the experience of the blow to be very even, with a resounding low register and equally responsive top register (very clean slotting to G over high C and beyond). It blows like an ML horn with a reverse leadpipe setup - I would classify it truly as a medium blow. Slightly more open than a 37ML strad, similar to a 43MLR strad.

I have owned a plethora of horns, which I feel enables me to make a fairly affirmitive and informed review. (I have owned a Taylor, Strads, Yamahas, Olds, Blessings, Conns, Bueschers, A Selmer and played on many many more. Believe me, this Carol 5000 horn is good!!)

I hope this helps anyone potentially on the fence. All the trumpet things, and music things it should do, it does. Comfortable in the hand, strong intonation... You won't go far wrong. Thomann have superb customer service, so if you happen not to like it you do have 14 days to return it!

Budget 8310Z with the D slide on - and a low register for free
Paul.Trumpet, 22.05.2019
Overall, a silly price for a super trumpet. Lacks weight and tonal clarity in the sound otherwise superb for jazz, big band and mucking about on. Mine is not perfect and has a small lacquer scratch and tiny leadpipe ripple. Such moaning is not really wise versus the low price for a trumpet with two tuning slides. Much easier high notes than YLS bell model, also seems faster. Nice balance in the hands, all moving parts slide as if hand fitted and the tuning slides both fit perfectly. The only things I disliked were the waterkey corks and soft valve springs, which actually worsen the valve alignment. I would like the mouthpiece receiver to fit better as it's too deep at 29.4mm, my collection of ancient Bach mouthpieces fit in further and work brilliantly. I might ask Thomann to refund or swap it so I cannot have that modified (although a competent repair shop can safely do it). The mouthpiece gap fit is serious issue though, it strangles the high notes when too big. The stainless valves just fly. A positive and fun instrument, almost good enough to perform some styles on.
