Super cool trumpet

I bought this for my daughter but I do know my onions. I teach brass & woodwind for Cleveland School of Music. I wanted a trumpet that was compact like a cornet and this pocket trumpet was ideal. Plays like a standard trumpet but slightly lighter. Thomann is a great company to deal with, the first pocket trumpet I was sent had a slight issue with one of the valve pistons not working correctly and within 10 days a replacement was sent which was thoroughly checked by Thomann's brass department. 2nd pocket trumpet was spot on, no issues and daughter absolutely delighted with it. I mean how does Thomann knock out a decent pocket trumpet in gold brass for £150! Intonates really well across the registers and all valves/slides work as they should. Don Cherry would luv this horn. I would heartily recommend this pocket trumpet for any budding trumpeter out there who is looking for a trumpet a little different from the norm or for a younger child who wants a smaller more manageable instrument.
