"Getzen 300/400 Series Trumpets have been used by many generations of beginning brass players. Although they are entry level instruments in the Getzen product line 390 and 490 Trumpets are far more than what other manufacturers consider "student line" instruments. Both models feature nickel silver inside slide tubing and hand spun, seamless bells with wire reinforced rims making them durable enough to stand up to the demands of a classroom setting.
In addition to the features listed above, 390 Trumpets come standard with nickel silver mouthpipe tubes that prevent corrosion, as well as seamless yellow brass bells. 390 Trumpets are also built around nickel plated, nickel silver pistons that are made to the same quality standards as the top line Getzen instruments."
As one of the only American-made student instruments left in current production, the Getzen 300 Series Bb Trumpet is definitely something to consider for your student's upcoming year of beginning band. It would also be a perfect buy for someone just looking to get back into playing but doesn't want to spend several thousand dollars. This trumpet is about 15 years old and was well taken care of by its previous owner. It's got a few lacquer blemishes where they instrument is held, plus a few additional scratches, typical of student instruments. The valves on this trumpet are just as buttery as all of Getzen's valves are, and it's got a nice big sound, perfect for anyone looking to get into trumpet.
