The JTR-500Q series Bb trumpet has taken key attributes from the award winning JTR-408 student model and re-designed certain aspects to make the 500 series more functional and ergonomic.
The instrument is made from yellow brass, which is standard for a student trumpet but it boasts features such as nickel-silver pistons with pearl buttons and stainless steel valves which make this instrument long lasting and aesthetically pleasing.
It has a medium – large bore with a width of 11.68mm or equivalent .460" meaning that although the instrument takes more breath to play the overall sound produced is much richer and fuller than trumpets with a smaller bore. This also increase the volume to help you be heard in a rehearsal or performance. It boasts a newly designed, ergonomic 'C' shaped main tuning slide that helps to create a more even airflow when playing.
Supplied in a moulded, plush lined case that will protect the trumpet from scratches to the finish or being knocked in transit, the case also has two adjustable backpack-style straps which help you to transport your trumpet safely, as well as keeping your hands free to carry other items without fear of damaging your instrument.
