490 Bb Trumpet

490 Bb Trumpet

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 handspun, seamless bells with wire-reinforced rims making them durable enough to stand up to the demands of a classroom setting.

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 handspun, 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.
