The horn plays well. It does not feel hard to play. I would recommend this: cheap for its quality.
It had been 48 years since I played trumpet and my original could not be brought back to good working condition. So I did some research on intermediate trumpets and Jean Paul rose to the top. The customer service and order process was great. I absolutely love this trumpet. It plays very well and has a great tone. And not only that... the price was right. Job well done, Jean Paul!!
I haven’t played the trumpet in years but I can say this is one of the nicest horns I’ve played for the money.
I thoroughly researched trumpets available for beginners, intermediate and comeback players. I read numerous reviews, watched videos in which Jean Paul trumpets were test-played by accomplished players. I also took into consideration comments from customers who had engaged Jean Paul customer support. I cannot be happier with my purchase of the TR-430 intermediate trumpet and the support available at Jean Paul. I made the right choice.
Fast, secure, very professional.
