The JTR-500 series Bb trumpet is the upgraded model from the award winning and highly recommended JTR-408 and has been re-designed to be more functional as well as aesthetically pleasing.
The instrument is made from gold brass with nickel-silver pistons and stainless steel valves which make the trumpet a very reliable instrument that will stand the test of time. The addition of 1st and 3rd valve slide shunts allows the player to change the tuning of the instrument quickly and easily. It has a Bore width of 11.68mm or the equivalent .460" which is a medium-large bore meaning the instrument needs a little more breath to play, but vastly improves the volume and provides a richer and fuller tone. It also has a more ergonomically designed 'C' shaped main tuning slide that helps to create a more even airflow.
Supplied in a lightweight hard case with shoulder strap, this instrument is a high quality student model with subtle upgraded features that make it a cut above standard student models.
