Good value for money
Stuart P. 25.05.2020
I purchased this trumpet as a bit of an experiment. Here in the UK rotary valved trumpets are rarely used, especially in amateur circles. Most of my trumpet playing is orchestral and brass ensembles.

The trumpet arrived promptly and was very well packaged. The case is ok but could have been a little larger to allow for mutes and a trumpet stand.

Onto the trumpet. The finish is good with no blemishes in the lacquer, the valves seem light and quiet. The trumpet has a nice warm, well rounded sound. I had one major issue with the trumpet and that was intonation. I found the C#, D, Eb and E nat in the stave to be very flat. I have tried various different mouthpieces with the instrument including a Breslmair and finally have settled with a Gr mouthpiece which has helped but the E and Eb are flat enough to need to use alternative fingering. I am happy to use alternative fingering as I am used to doing this with with both my piccolo and Eb trumpets (both very good pro models).

In conclusion - for me the quality of sound overrides the need to use alternative fingering. This trumpet offers very good value for money but it is not a pro standard trumpet. I am very pleased with it. The trumpet would also benefit from a trigger on the first valve and a water key on the third valve slide. The third valve trigger works well.

A pretty decent trumpet
Qi C. 09.10.2021
I honestly got this just to try out a rotary and compare it to a piston.

Build Quality:
Really nice for the price, though the slides can be a bit hard to pull out. The trigger for the 3rd slide can also be a rough.

Sound:
Good sound and intonation, especially when paired with a good mouthpiece design for rotaries.

The only issue that I've experienced is that my left hand could get a bit sore after a long practice session. Sadly, I have to return the instrument so I can afford to upgrade to a better piston trumpet.

Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis
Erich964 04.02.2019
Gut gefallen hat mir der Klang und die Ansprache. Leise gespielt ist sie sofort da und leicht zu spielen. Laut gespielt hat sie einen mächtigen Strahl. Bestätigen kann ich, dass das Instrument in Ansprache, Klang und Intonation teureren Trompeten in nichts nach steht. Die Ventile sind sehr leichtgängig. Ein Kratzen der Ventile am Anfang, wie bei manchen Instrumenten in dieser Preisklasse, konnte ich nicht feststellen. Ich habe die Trompete zurückgeben müssen, da nach einer gewissen Zeit Schmerzen in der linken Hand aufgetreten sind. Daher gibt es einen Punktabzug in der Verarbeitung. Schade!
