Great trumpet-and no it’s not a toy! By:
I was NOT expecting to hear a great sound out of this, but I’m in awe because it DID have a great sound! I can’t tell the difference from my Bach sound from this one. This is a winner!!!!
Ignore the Snobs and try it yourself. By:
I took a risk and it paid off.I love the instrument.It is more suseptable to dings and the 3 prong stand sucks.I do suggest paying 10 bucks less and buying the other Mendini package and purchasing a 5 prong stand yourself.I was expecting straps for the bag, but it doesn't come with one.I switched out the mouthpiece for one with a better name.For the price, it's the best practice instrument on the move.I may have simply gotten lucky but if you did get a malfunctioning one, what's stopping you from returning it or exchanging.
Very nice sound and fun to play By:
I bought this for my teenaged son he is first chair trumpet in a very prominent school band. He owns a proline trumpet and he loves the sound of this trumpet. Very nice and fun to play
Great little pocket trumpet! By:
This pocket trumpet is great for the price. It comes with a sturdy carrying case and valve oil. I recommend getting it!
Very fun trumpet to play By:
It is very fun to play this instrument. It was not as light weight as I had expected but easy to hold and can carry it in my backpack. The tone is not as good as a good full size trumpet but does not spoil the play. The valves are no problem. So far I have not experienced any sticky valves. The actions are very smooth and easy to blow too. It looks so cute and it makes me feel like painting or decorating it to customize which I would not do with a full size trumpet. The mouthpiece "7C" that came with the trumpet was very difficult for me to play with and I had to switch to the ones I have been using like Bach 3C and Yamaha Bobby Shew Lead.
Love me my pocket trumpet By:
Love me my pocket trumpet. Very convenient when I don't want to carry my normal sized trumpet around. I ain't complaining :)
Good quality for price By:
Its really nice. For its price, i didn't expect as much quality as it actually had. The case doesn't keep the mouthpiece very well but the trumpet plays well. I found it very easy to play loud easier with this pocket and I love using it for casual events! It is a must buy for musicians as a hobby but in preformance, a trumpet is better for that professional look.
Wonderful By:
I can't believe I could afford this wonderful instrument. But it won't fit in my pocket.

Pocket sized power By:
Honestly at first glance I was suprised with the case it came with, very compact and neat. As for the horn itself sounded fantastic, right outta the case very nice shiny brass and the mouth piece just felt great. Overall I am glad for purchssing this trumpet. It plays "gang plank galleon" from smash ultimate just fine.

good instrument By:

I like it as a first time player By:

Nice
Gorgeous By:
We bought this for my daughter who’s in her first year of band. She started with my husband’s standard trumpet from when he was a kid but we wanted her to have her own instrument. We got it for her as a birthday gift and she was so happy she cried and then proceeded to play it right away. She thinks it’s beautiful (which it is) and plays perfectly. She’s gotten compliments from her band instructor for how well it plays and sounds. Because it came with a case it’s easy for her to take back and forth between home and school and she loves all the extras it came with too. It has been worth every penny. Don’t hesitate! Get it. You’ll definitely be happy you did!

Initial Reaction: Pretty Good By:
This is my initial impression of the CarolBrass Pocket Trumpet--it arrived in the mail today. I will try to remember to give an update after I've had the horn for a few months.As other reviewers have stated, the valves do come not having been oiled. I don't really see why this is something to complain about, however; simply add valve oil and everything seems to be working fine. I saw that another reviewer thought that the tone was airy or weak but my experience thus far has been the opposite--the horn is very bright with a remarkable amount of power that is quite even throughout the range of the instrument with the exception of the lowest fourth of the instrument below "C" which sounds fine but is a bit softer than the rest of the range. This instrument easily overpowers my Yamaha or Jupiter (that comment isn't meant as a positive or a negative, as I like both of those instrument, but rather just a simple fact. I'm going to enjoy seeing the look on the other guys' faces when I pull this out in practice and begin screaming). Additionally, the construction appears to be solid; everything arrived in working order and the finish is lovely.The best feature of this trumpet, by far, is its intonation. The "D's" line up really well. In fact, I do not think that I have ever played a trumpet, of any brand, that has been so in tune with itself. I don't know if the manufacturer just got lucky or if all CarolBrass horns are this precise. But, wow, is it impressive. I will definitely check out other CarolBrass horns to find out.I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I hope that in several months, I am still pleased.*FOLLOW-UP* ****************************************************I've now had this instrument for a week or two and my initial review stands. The valves, which came needing oil, have worked to 100% satisfaction, having been oiled only a single time. They're clean, fast, and precise. I would rate the valves as being very solid. When compared to my Yamaha and my Jupiter I would rank valve quailty from best to worst as: Yamaha, CarolBrass Pocket Trumpet, Jupiter (My Jupiter needs to be oiled almost daily and the quality of the metal in values is obviously subpar).Concerning the mouthpiece, this horn comes with a CarolBrass 3C. For those of you who do not know, that is a pretty large mouthpiece and if you like something smaller then you better buy/use something else.And, as before, this horn still sounds wonderful, bright, and crisp with OUTSTANDING intonation.
