Eastar ETR-380

Eastar offers a perfect choice for beginners and intermediate learners, with a more-than-basic trumpet.

Available in golden and nickel color, the ETR-380 model is not only an outstanding Bb trumpet but also beautiful, with a polished bright finish. Besides, Eastar has more than 20 years of manufacturing experience and offers a high quality control system, testing each instrument individually.

We love the valves, more specifically, as it is clear that Eastar has put a lot of dedication on them. The pistons are very smooth and easy to press, making the trumpet very playable and giving you the feeling that you are using a more professional (and expensive) instrument.

Glory Brass Bb Trumpet

The Glory standard trumpet has a very affordable price and a good intonation. The sound it produces is clear and crisp. It also comes with a light hard case, a pair of white gloves and polishing cloth, which makes it an even better inversion.

Of course, it cannot be compared to a professional trumpet, specially at this price, but if you are a fresh starter and do not want to feel the stress of managing an expensive trumpet, Glory is the best option.

Our recommendation is to oil the valves in first place, to avoid they can get stuck.
