I bought this trumpet because I trust the Jean Paul products very much. I have a Jean Paul Clarinet and Flute, both of which are excellent instruments. I have much to learn about playing trumpet, but so far this trumpet is treating me just as well as my other Jean Paul instruments.
Purchased a trumpet for my son for his middle school band. Site easy to use, and payment options available.
Bought the trumpet for a reasonable price, delivered quickly after a week. The tone quality isn't the best but it's acceptable for someone who is just starting out to learn how to play a trumpet. Recommended!
I bought this trumpet for my high school age granddaughter who is a flute player.
She received it on Christmas and has been trying it out and seems to be very pleased with it.
My husband and I opened it and were pleased with the presentation.
I will definitely purchase from you in the future and recommend you to my friends.
Thank you for the personal touch you added to the purchase.
My qualifier...I purchased mine used on ebay from a seller not affiliated with Jean Paul. It did not appear the trumpet had seen much usage. This is my second Jean Paul trumpet; my other is a 860 Pro which I purchased new.
My horn looked new. There three small surface imperfections that I believe were always there...barely noticeable on close inspection. Otherwise the yellow brass / nickel contrasts are quite nice and overall, the trumpet looks elegant.
The valves weren't as responsive as I wanted. I noted gray discoloration when clean my valve pistons which I believe was from factory lapping when the instrument was new. So I gave my horn a bath. Brushed the valve inner walls and spent time eliminating any gray shadows on the slide insides. Then dried, oiled and reinstalled the pistons. I turned the trumpet upside down and oiled the valves again before reinstalling the bottom caps. Whala! Valve responsiveness much crisper and clean.
Overall, I think that, as compared to my other horns, this trumpet is on the heavy side which is fine with me.
The Trumpet is easy blowing, well slots your notes and has a nice tone, a bright overall sound...not tinny, weak or dull.
I am happy with my purchase and have really enjoyed playing it for a few days. I have found lately, that all my new horns initially need a bath...just do it. Makes a great student without question. Seems to respond to all I try to do with it...plays in low, mid and high register readily. Jean Paul support and responsive with my other trumpet was quick and impeccable.
