Cons: Pure crap

Don't ever buy a horn from a "Mart" store. They don't last, and can't be repaired.

Pros: Easy to find, nationwide repair network.
Cons: Hard to believe it's much horn for that price.

Don't own one, haven't played one.
They couldn't be great at the price.

However, I have to point out that, contrary to what you may read, they DO have a nationwide repair network. They can be repaired and/or replaced and are warranted as such.

Pros: Very playable by beginners, full kit
Cons: 100% unsuitable for the serious or experienced

This horn sells at discount stores for 200 dollars. It comes with a stand, a case, a tuner, valve oil, and a warranty.

I had the chance to play one at my school, and it was actually pretty sturdy.
Anything from C to CC played beautifully, but if I ventured higher or lower the sound quality was lousy. The bell was too big for my taste and this is clearly a student trumpet.

Verdict: Much more playable than most cheap trumpets from China, but for the enthusiasts here it's a pretty lame horn. For a little kid who might only play in the C to CC range it would be fine, if only because it comes with all the extras.

I've seen them on ebay for around 50 dollars.
