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 that trumpets with a smaller bore and 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 has two adjustable backpack style straps that help you to transport your trumpet safely, as well as keeping your hands free to carry other items without fear of damaging your instrument.
All of our woodwind and brass instruments are checked by our in house technicians to ensure that you receive an instrument that is playable straight from the case
