Anyone looking for an inexpensive quality trumpet should get this one. I have had mine for a couple of years and it is still as good as new. It plays very well. It's not as smooth as my Jupiter 1600i but it is way more in tune. It slots well and has a great sound. The valves are fast and slick. Overall It's a great value. I have been playing the trumpet for over 40 years and I recomend this horn for anyone.
I had previously bought an intermediate trumpet (not a Jean Paul), and had a really hard time getting anything out of it except for a few rather "obscene" noises.
After that dismal failure I purchased a Jean Paul students trumpet (TR330) from Jean Paul. A major improvement!
I am self teaching and have no desire to play in an orchestra nor a jazz band. This is strictly for my own "enjoyment" (??)
I still stink... but I stink a whole lot less than with the other, and am having a great time doing it!
Over all... Unlike my neighbors and the furry creatures living nearby... I'm having a lot of fun with my new trumpet.
Thanks Jean Paul... despite the torches and pitchforks of my neighbors.
We ordered this trumpet for me a month ago....Jean Paul's T330 Trumpet shows you don't need an expensive Trumpet to sound good! I'm really amazed at this Trumpet. It comes with a 7C Mouthpiece (a great beginner's mouthpiece), which you can upgrade if you choose. Pair a high-quality Mouthpiece with this Trumpet, take care of the trumpet + the player behind the instrument, and you're good to go for quite some time. When you unbox this trumpet--and before you play it--it's recommend you oil the valves with high-quality valve oil, like the 'Blue Juice' line of Valve Oil (instead of using the valve oil that comes with the trumpet). The trumpet comes with instructions on maintenance/care of the trumpet. I plan on getting the Jean Paul's Flugelhorn in a few months.
I ordered a trumpet from this brand being skeptical at first but then I was blown away by how good it plays!
Why buy from Jean Paul?
$1,500 for a student horn? Not anymore. High quality instruments at radically lower prices. That's our promise.
