Pros: Price, full sound
Cons: sound may be too bright for some players

 
Bought this as a step-up for my 9th grader, he's been on it for 2 yrs. now. The large bore helps the younger player get a fuller tone. The horn has a big, bright sound that can pop out of a section-good for lead in a jazz ensemble or pep band. Not dark enough for orchestra or some classical playing at a higher level. The tone improved and the notes slotted much better with a Bach 3c mp instead of the Benge mp that came with it.

Pros: Bold sound
Cons: Stuffy in the upper register

 
This horn is OK for a middle schooler looking to take a step up from his beginning horn, but not right for a student looking to proceed to an advanced level of performance.

Pros: Tone quality, Flex (For Jazz/Blues)
Cons: Upper Register anerexia

 
Great Horn for the Person that is looking for a gig horn (not too worried about it getting dinged) Or for the Performer looking to upgrade or replace an existing inter. horn. However, not a great classical performer unless you are sitting 3rd+ chair (3,4,5...)

Pros: nice tone, bigger bore, silver
Cons: seems harder for me to play lower dynamic stuff

 
I got this horn used for my my 15th birthday. it wasn't in perfect condition, but it played well enough. played it for jazz band in the ninth grade and it worked fine. I put it away my sophomore year for marching season(we all used matching horns). i started using it for performance again when i joined the local community band. I found it wasn't really that great for the lower dynamics. I would recommend this trumpet for someone that plays at a higher dynamic like jazz, banda, or ska. Wouldn't really recommend for classical or solo ensemble. anything in between it would get the job done. I'm looking into buying a more all-around trumpet, but I'm surely keeping this one for when i want to have some fun.
