The 3051 Model is ideal for the jazz player looking for a broad, warm tone from a free feeling trumpet. With a standard gold brass bell and square tuning slide crook, the 3051 Trumpet plays smooth with excellent intonation from low to high. Despite the freeness already present with the 3051, players can select the optional large bore (.462") model if even less resistance and a brighter sound is desired.

Pros: Smooth Valves, Smooth Slides, Great Look :Manufacturer says gold brass bell, but looks reddish. Blows very well and is thoughtfully constructed.
Cons: small brazing bell flaw

I repaced a mid-seventies bach strad with the getzen 3051. It's been a pleasing horn to play. I wouldn't limit it to playing jazz alone( this is most of the work I do). It feels like an all around trumpet. Keep in mind it's a custom horn that can be bought at a mass produced price.

Pros: feel, valves, jazzy tone, intonation, easy high notes
Cons: nasty looking finish of bell seam

Played at Dawkes in maidenhead uk versus a bach strad 37lr it was just in a higher class. Still prefer the B&S 3178/2 for the money though. Bell looks more copper than brass to me. Its also not that "heavy" though Getzen describe it as such its more middleweight to me. A very good all round horn that's definitely not old fashioned. The slides/valves fit so well it has great compression....the grip and balance is also good.

Credit where its due, this is better than a Bach and adaptable to any style of music. Not well known in the UK.

Pros: from "ludwig1685"

Iím not sure when Getzen redesigned their Custom Series horns, but the ones Iíve played recently in the stores were impressive given their price. The last one I played was a 3051. I can honestly say it is one of the best sounding and playing trumpets Iíve ever tried. I immediately fell in love with it. If youíre looking for a great horn with a dark, warm tone and canít afford a Calicchio Copper, this may be it. For the money, I canít think of a better option.
(I know you can get a reverse lead pipe if thatís a preference, but I think you can get a copper bell as well.)

This horn replaced my bach strad. i just love the feeling of the horn. If you're looking for a good responding horn with a beautiful sound at a reasonable price then this horn is for you
