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.
490 Trumpets are designed to provide musicians with the higher quality sound and performance they want without sacrificing the durability they need. 490 Trumpets have many of the same great features of the 390 with the addition of a standard first valve saddle, gold brass mouthpipe, and hand spun, seamless gold brass bell. This makes the 490 a warm sounding, free blowing trumpet for the player looking for a superior instrument at an exceptional value.
