Panaform says:

Im planning to get one of this.. to learn, I HAVE CERO KNOLEDGE on how to play the trumpet. Is a good option to start from cero?

Gaby Nunez says:

what do you think the best trumpet brand is

Vadim Martynyuk says:

Did this guy even play this thing ? I keep skipping and didn’t find the instrument played just talking

Nate says:

Trent, I am so happy to announce that you have inspired me to get a soprano trombone xD it’s so much fun and I owe it all to you

phartsdust says:

Even I, a frozen cave man from the states, knows this is overpriced crap. Price should be $49.95?

tab lloyd says:

You have a very good presentation with this horn, and I wouldn’t say anything negative but really check out Alison Balsom’s review before dumping the idea of purchasing one. A person could be really proficient without regret of having this horn.

zxKAOS1 says:

I saw an a Walmart ad for a $150 USD, plastic euphonium.  I’d imagine a review of that wouldn’t be too dissimilar to this.

ReloadPsi says:

I almost bought one of these to learn with. Maybe not.

atomatopia1 says:

*Gasp* In Keel Row did you play the second pair of sixteenth-dotted eighths on the ‘a’ of 2? How could you do such a thing, you monster?! (I’m just pullin’ your leg, though)

alex carter says:

Tromba about $200, Cicilio made in China “trumpet shaped object $89 online and $100 at local swap meet. I assume they’re shit but a busker I know has been making a living with his Cicilio for months on end so …. go brass

Jordan Beavers says:

Hey man, you are playing the valves wrong.

Darkened Dog says:

how much moolah?

richardo Lopez says:

he does not have his fingers curved

Mr_Beezlebub says:

How does it stack up to the fake Bach Stradivarius?

_StarS_ says:

are you fucking me in the ass right now, $150

Code Alex says:

when trumpets become a woodwind…

Marwa Saidjamol says:

he stats playing at 6:03

Britt Schmal says:

As a former trumpet player, PLEASE LEARN TO HOLD IT RIGHT OMFG.

EnglishTMTB says:

Not that it really matters… but what comes out is not spit, it’s condensation.

Jim Sadler says:

Are the valves Berliner rather than Perinot?

Deadlylollipop The potterhead says:

Why’d you put your pinkie there

russell straight says:

It amazes me how people buy cheap instruments or beginner instruments that are hard to play for their child starting out. They would do better with a good advance instrument, less feedback, freer blowing, better valves it just make it easier for them to learn instead of struggling. if you can’t buy a new advance instrument then buy used. My 2 cents for the day

Warren Crim II says:

At least you tell the truth about the terrible quality you get when buying a plastic trumpet

Kate Phillips says:

Would using a Kelly plastic mouthpiece be any better? They’re made of a polycarbonate, I believe.

M1G says:

What key is that Trumpet in?

ApplepieFTW says:

That third variation sounds beethoven inspired 🙂

Xbonniegamaer 134X says:

I’m playing the trumpet in my school band for Are spring concert

benisbadatgames says:

Hi Trent- I have a question. When I first got my trumpet back in 5th grade, she told me never to flat-finger, as it could bend the valves. I notice that you do just that. Is this just a myth, or is it a bad habit?

aj.106_ says:

I broke my trumpet from my 3rd valve tuning slide cracking and the 2 nd valve is so stuck that it isn’t going to come out ever

Genji is Bae says:

I don’t need it I have an intermediate silver Bach trumpet. I know, it’s good

j lin says:

Mr Donut says:

With the plastic mouthpiece. The sound from the trumpet sounded pretty “plastickykkykyky” But with the metal one sounds way more brighter and better

Ursa says:

I think your fingers are getting tired because you’re pushing them with your finger is completely flat, rather than an arched.

Rob Griff says:

Good video. As an adult, I bought one of these to use as a learning tool, and as such it is ideal – not too expensive, gives an idea of what playing a trumpet can be like, and has allowed me to get up and running. Mine had none of the defects mentioned in the video, but I guess they are fairly inconsistent when they roll off the production lines. I have yet to buy a proper trumpet, but went through a similar process with trombone, started on a pBone then bought a good quality metal instrument. Once that switch is made, there is no going back, and I expect the same for the trumpet. It was heartening to hear that even an accomplished player considered it difficult to play, so my reasoning for now is that if I can make a plastic trumpet sound good, it bodes well when I eventually get a good instrument.

K. Weiss says:

Have you ever tested out a plastic tuba?

guitarhick says:

hey trent i noticed the “plummers putty” comment. my cornet has a leak and it is driving me up the wall. please advise.

rogermwilcox says:

It’s not spit, it’s condensation!

_ DonutMaster56 _ says:

One Word: Whyalwaysbrass?

jay says:

Lol $150 for plastic? I spent 250 on a used great condition silver coated Bach student trumpet
