Mendini Euphonium is an amazing beginner instrument which made by Mendini which is not surprising since they make very good beginner instruments and this instrument is not an exception. This product is lightweight, well built, produces a decent sound and comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Mendini Euphonium (2020 Review)

About: Mendini is a very trustworthy instrument manufacturer and they are very popular among musical students since they make very high-quality products and they don’t put ridiculous price tags on them.

Features: Let’s start our review by saying something honest. You take all the positive things that we will say below with the consideration that this product has a very reasonable price tag and it delivers everything that a beginner musical student needs from an instrument. However, if you’re looking for an advanced level euphonium, this is not the product that you’re looking for.

Let’s start by mentioning that this euphonium comes in two different versions which are nickel and lacquered yellow brass. Keep in mind that the choice of the material won’t make a difference in the sound quality or anything, so, you can get the one that whichever you think looks better. Keep in mind that the choice that the students make is often gold.

As for the sound quality, we should mention that, considering its price tag, this euphonium has a clean voice, accurate tone, bright and penetrating sound. It is also worth mentioning that you can play all the registers with no problem but some students reported that it takes a little bit of concentrated air to play some notes.

We should mention that this product doesn’t have a compensating valve which is expected considering the fact that it comes with a very reasonable price tag. Pedal register is present in Mendini Euphonium which is another good thing about this instrument. So, we can say that this is a fairly good instrument for a fairly low price.

Another thing that is worth saying about this euphonium is that it comes with a .566” bore and a 12” upright bell and four stainless steel smooth top action pistons all of these features makes it very easy to play which is essential in a beginner level instrument.

We also like the fact that this product comes with various accessories such as a mouthpiece, a hard case, a cloth, and a pair of gloves which are the things that you definitely need sooner or later.

You don’t need to worth about the potential manufacturer defects that might happen on some instruments since Mendini Euphonium comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Should You Buy a New or a Used Euphonium?

Should you buy a new or a used euphonium? Our take on this issue is the following: it is not a good idea to buy a used instrument it is your only option. Because there is a chance that the euphonium you buy will come with defects that you don’t understand in the first glance.

So, it is always a better idea to buy a new instrument if you have the budget for it. However, buying a used instrument might make sense if you’re not sure whether you’re going to play that instrument for a long period of time. In that case, renting also might be a good idea.

As a general rule, it is fine to buy a used instrument if you’re an advanced level player since you’re more likely to understand the defects on the product. We should also mention that regardless of your level, you should always get a mouthpiece with the instrument you buy to avoid any potential problems in hygiene.

Conclusion: Mendini Euphonium (2021 Review)

Starting to play euphonium is a great thing but you should be careful about your first instrument if you want to stick your habit because if you don’t like the instrument you buy, the chance that you’re going to play that instrument for a long time will decrease a lot.

We like Mendini Euphonium a lot in that sense because it is one of the highest quality beginner instruments in the market that comes with a price tag is very reasonable compared to the other euphoniums in the market and that is the reason we wanted to review this instrument. We hope that our review was helpful to you when you’re making your decision!

Eastar Trombone (2021 Review)

If you’re one of our regular readers, then you probably know that we love reviewing a wide range of instruments in our articles and in this article, we will review the Eastar Trombone which is a great beginner trombone. It is very exciting for us because it is not common to see a high-quality product like this with a price tag like this.

Before we get to our detailed review let’s mention that Eastar Trombone is an ideal option for beginner trumpet players who are looking for a trombone that they can play for a very long time. We like this product in that sense because even though it is not a professional trombone, it is a solid and high-quality trombone.

Eastar Trombone Review

About: This is a well-built trombone that has a robust design, it has a decent sound quality and it comes with very reasonable price tag. There is not much more you can expect from a beginner instrument, really. Eastar Trombone can also be a great back-up trombone because of its lightweight.

Features: When we take a look at Eastar Trombone the first thing that catches our attention is the fact that this product is very lightweight at 9.28 pounds. That is why, this trombone can be held for long hours with no problem even by kids and that is why you might consider this one if you’re looking for an instrument for your kid.

This product comes with a clean voice, accurate tone, bright and penetrating sound that you can only find in the trombones that have a much more expensive price tag. It features a stunning yellow brass body construction which is also nice because sound is not the only important thing in an instrument.

It also comes with a small bore which makes it ideal for different types and styles of musicians and genres. It is also designed to provide a better and more accurate tone, than many other trombones, on the market.

Considering its price tag, it is very nice of the manufacturer to include various accessories with the product such as hard carrying case, a pocketbook for trombone, gloves, soft cleaning cloth, and oil for the slide. Hard carrying case is not something that one often encounters in budget friendly instruments.

As for the durability, we should mention that it is very good. However, it is not built like a tank, so, always be careful about the dings and other damages that might happen to the product.  

We also like the fact that Eastar Trombone comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty which is nice considering that you never know what you will encounter after you buy an instrument. Keep in mind that this doesn’t cover the damaged made by you.

Buyer’s Guide

What to Look for In a Beginner Level Trombone

As with any other thing that you buy, there are different trombones that are at different levels in the market. So, the best thing you can do is to buy a trombone that matches your level and your needs because otherwise you might encounter some problems.

It doesn’t make sense to buy a beginner level instrument if you’re a professional trombone player since the chance that it is going to disappoint you is very high. On the other hand, we also don’t suggest buying an advanced level trombone if you’re a beginner for a couple of reasons.

The first reason is a very obvious one which is the price tag. We never advise our readers to spend hundreds of dollars for an instrument if they are new at playing that instrument since it can be hard to stick with any habit for a variety of reasons and that also goes for playing musical instrument. Therefore, you will regret your decision if you decide to stop playing and that is why it is a better to buy an instrument that won’t make you go broke.

The main reason for that is that the market of musical instrument has changed a lot in the recent years. It is possible to find a very high-quality instrument for a price tag that might surprise you like between 150$-$300$ Dollars. On the hand, it makes sense to pay a lot for a trombone such as more than 500$ if you’re an advanced trombone player.

Conclusion: Eastar Trombone (2021 Review)

Buying a budget friendly instrument for a much more reasonable price tag is much easier today thanks to the high technology. So, you don’t have to break bank to be able to have a new habit like playing trombone.

To be able to do that, you need a great instrument that will help you when you’re starting your journey and there are not a lot of trombones in the market that will do that for you other than Eastar Trombone which we wanted to review exactly for that reason. We hope that our review was helpful to you!

Buyer’s Guide

What to Look for in a Beginner Level Trombone

It is very important to get the right product for your level which is especially true if you’re a beginner. We can say that as a general rule, the best type of trombone to buy is tenor trombone if you’re a beginner but you can also buy a bass trombone which is also considered as second-best trombone for a beginner.

There are also two different variants of which are straight and F attachment trombones. F attachment trombone has an additional tubing in the bell bow for resting on the shoulder along with a trigger for extra tubing which helps playing the lower notes but they can be heavier and harder to carry.

Not surprisingly, you have better options when you’re an advanced trombone player but if you’re a beginner it is better to go with a straight trombone and f attachment trombone. F attachment trombones can be a little bit easier to play but they are also very hard to carry around and that is why you need to make your choice according to your needs which will be very important. Getting a straight trombone makes sense because they cost lower which can a deciding factor for student who just started playing the trombone.

As for the price tag, we should mention that in today’s world, like everything, buying a high-quality instrument for a reasonable price tag is much easier. It is possible to find a great budget friendly trombone for a price between 150$-400$. However, if you’re looking for a professional trombone, you should be willing to pay much more.

It is also worth mentioning that this trumpet comes with a tuning slide that is braced so that it is better aligned when playing. It is good because this mean that there is no need to spend a lot of time when playing this instrument.

We also want to talk a little bit about the valves since they are important. Lj Hutchen Trumpet comes with stainless steel valves which provides a high level a consistent performance but we still advise oiling them regularly with the valve oil that comes with this product to avoid any corrosion that might happen in the future.

Even though the price seems a little bit high, we already mentioned in the beginning of our review that Lj Hutchen Trumpet is ideal for intermediate, professional or beginner trumpet players who are serious about playing the trumpet.

The quality of this product can be understood thanks to its soldering which is done perfectly and it is hard to see any defects on it.

As for the vale alignment, we can confidently say that it is almost perfect and it’s hard to see any difference from trumpets that have higher price tags such as Yamaha. This is important because valves are a great demonstration of the quality of any trumpet. A lot of trumpet players who played this instrument for a long time reported that the valves don’t cause any problem whatsoever even after a long time of playing.

Design is another very important aspect that you consider when you buy an instrument, so, let’s talk about that. Jean Paul USA TR 430 Trumpet comes with a perfect lacquering which looks amazing.

The sound is the thing that amazes us about this trumpet which is very pleasant considering its price tag.

So, students who played Jean Paul USA TR 430 Trumpet for a long time reported that this product is very easy and fun to play.

To sum up, we should mention that this trumpet is a great option whether you’re a beginner or an intermediate player. To only situation that you should avoid this product is if you’re looking for a product that you can play in an orchestra etc. but other than that, it’s all to the good.

Jean Paul USA TR 330 Trumpet Review

About: Contrary to the product that we mentioned above, Jean Paul USA TR 330 Trumpet is more a product that is ideal for beginners. It is lightweight, great durability, reasonable price tag and decent sound quality all of which are features that are great for a beginner instrument.

Features: Let’s start by mentioning that this is a well-built, tough and a durable trumpet that can last any trumpet player for a long time under normal conditions. We also like the design a lot since it comes with a yellow brass body that has a gold lacquer finish. However, you should keep in mind that you need to take proper care of this instrument for it to stay in a good condition.

Bore is another very important thing in a trumpet, so, let’s talk a little bit about that which is .459 ideal for students since it is easy to play both high and low register in this product. It has a thumb saddle on the first valve for control and comfort. The third valve slide has a ring and a slide stop. These are common to most trumpets, but they are important as they help promote correct hand posture.

Since we’re talking about the technical aspects of this trumpet, let’s talk a little about the valves.

We also like the intonation in this trumpet a lot since it comes with a great intonation and tunings. This is important because you don’t often see a great intonation in a product that is in this price range.

We should mention that this trumpet has a great handle to it since it the thumble saddle on the first valve and the third valve gives it a comfortable feeling.

It is true that there are a lot of nice things that we can say about this trumpet but the sound quality is the thing that made us fall in love with this product. When compared to the products that are in the similar price tag, it has a great sound quality and it definitely exceeds expectations considering its price.

Buyer’s Guide

Let’s start by mentioning that there are a lot of things that you need to look for and be careful about since you want the trumpet that you buy last for a long time. To help you avoid any potential problems that you might encounter before and after you buy an instrument, we wanted to prepare this buyer’s guide, so, let’s quickly get to it.

Differences Between Professional and Student Trumpets

We should go ahead and tell our honest opinion about whether there is a difference between a professional and a student trumpet. The short answer to that question is yes there is a difference between a professional and a student trumpet and it might matter and not matter depending on your circumstance.

There is often a sound quality difference between a professional and student trumpet but that difference might be so small that it might not matter unless you’re a professional trumpet player or playing in an orchestra.

There might also be difference in the weight between the professional and student trumpet because the manufacturers often make student trumpet make less weight so that it can be played for long hours by children.

An intermediate student doesn’t need a trumpet made of gold with perfect intonation and sound that resonates through professional halls, but he/she does need a trumpet that can reach multiple octaves.

That is why, we can say that a student might need trumpet with a larger bore size and you also need to take that into consideration when buying a product.

What is the Ideal Price for a Trumpet?

We should start by mentioning that it is not hard to find a high-quality trumpet for a very reasonable price tag in today’s market. So, it is possible to find a budget friendly trumpet that costs between 100$ – 300$ Dollars.

A trumpet that costs between 100$ – 300$ will definitely provide everything that you want from an instrument unless you’re a professional trumpet player. If that is the case, it makes sense to buy an instrument that is at the higher that costs more than a 500$ Dollars. We talked a little bit what buying an expensive instrument can make a difference above.

So, you should know your level and make your decision according to your level when buying an instrument. However, in most cases, buying a trumpet that cost more than 500$ Dollars is not necessary unless you’re a professional player.

Conclusion: Jean Paul TR 330 & 430 Trumpet (2021 Review)

Eastar Gold Trumpet Review

About: Eastar is a very popular brand among musical students thanks to very high-quality instruments they make that come with a reasonable price tag and this trumpet made by them is a great example of it.

Features: As we mentioned above, this trumpet comes with a very reasonable price tag but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t expect a decent sound quality from this instrument because it has a great sound quality that you wouldn’t assume from an instrument at this price range. The main reason for that is that the copper lead provides a great airflow, which makes it possible to generate great notes up and down the scale.

As for the material, it is worth mentioning that Eastar Gold Trumpet is made of copper and stylish gold lacquer which is great considering its price tag. You might also buy this instrument in different colors such as black, blue, nickel, purple, red and sky blue.

Most trumpet students prefer the gold material for a couple of reasons. The first reason for that choice is because it is the common precedent and it is also less likely to show the defects on it.

We also like the fact that this trumpet comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty which is essential because even though it is not likely some instrument can have some defects that happen during the production and it is always good to have the option to send back the instrument you buy within one year after your purchase.

It is also worth mentioning that this product has very high-quality vales that have a good rebound. Keep in mind that you need to oil the valves regularly so that it feels smooth when you play the trumpet but we should also say that internal parts of the pipes are cleaned three times with an ultrasonic wave.

Durability is another aspect that we like about this product. Eastar has been in the business for overy 20 years and that is why they know what they’re doing. So, we’re confident that you can play Eastar Gold Trumpet for long years in normal conditions.

As we mentioned in the beginning of our review, Eastar Gold Trumpet is a student trumpet which has been designed for beginners and intermediate players and that is also the reason why it is very easy to play. So, this product is worth consideration if you want to get a high-quality trumpet but don’t want to pay a lot of money.

Buyer’s Guide

If you come to a place where you decide to buy an instrument, then you’re at a very lucky place in your life because buying an instrument is a very exciting thing but there are also things that you need to look for in an instrument so that you can make a better decision that you will not regret later. Therefore, we want to inform you a little bit about the trumpets and a general buying process that you will encounter during your purchase. So, let’s get right into it.

Is There a Difference Between Professional and Student Trumpets?

Like most things buy, it is true that you get what you pay for. However, that doesn’t mean that it is not possible to buy an instrument for a very reasonable price tag. In fact, it is very possible since in today’s market, there are a lot of trustworthy brands that make very high-quality products.

To come back to our question, is there a difference between a professional trumpet and a student trumpet? Our answer to that question would be of course yes. Like there is a difference between an expensive and a cheaper car, there is a in difference in quality between expensive and cheap instruments.

It is also worth mentioning that buying a very expensive instrument if you’re a beginner doesn’t make a lot sense since you’re not sure whether you’re going to stick with that habit. However, it definitely makes sense to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars if you’re a professional trumpet player.

 As for the difference between expensive and budget friendly instruments, we can say that those differences can be subtle or noticeable depending on your level. A student trumpet won’t reach the same range as a professional but beginner students won’t need a trumpet that can reach multiple octaves and are made of gold. Also, budget friendly trumpets are often more lightweight to be held more easily by children.

The general advice to get a trumpet according to your level. If you’re beginner, the best thing you can do is to get a high-quality and a budget friendly instrument that you can play for a long time. On the other hand, if you’re an advanced trumpet player, buying budget friendly, beginner or an intermediate trumpet would make sense.

How Much Should You Pay for a Trumpet?

It is an answer that we give to most questions and we will do the same here. It depends on your level and your expectations from a trumpet. In today’s market, it is possible to buy a very good trumpet by spending 100$ -300$ Dollars and you can also buy an advanced trumpet buy spending over a 1000$ Dollars.

It also makes sense to get an intermediate level trumpet when you’ve just started playing trumpet for a price that is a little bit higher so that you can also play it when you can play it for a longer period of time.

As we mentioned above, it really depends on your expectations from a trumpet and what you want to buy that trumpet for. Luckily, it possible to get a very good trumpet for a reasonable price tag and you can also read the reviews when you’re making your choice so that you don’t regret your decision later.

Used vs. New Trumpet

There are a few ways to buy a trumpet including buying a brand new one, a used one and you can also rent your trumpet if you don’t want to play that instrument for a long time. The decision that you’re going to make highly depends on your goal since every way of obtaining an instrument might make sense in some cases.

As a general rule, the safest way to get an instrument is to buy a new one since the problems that you’re going to encounter won’t be that much. However, since the chance of having problems is less likely, it also means that you will have to pay more for a brand-new trumpet.

So, it only makes sense to buy a new trumpet if you’re serious about the habit of playing an instrument since there is a chance that you will have spent a lot of money for an instrument that you’re not going to play.

However, we strongly suggest buying a brand-new trumpet if you have the budget for it for a lot of reasons. The first reason would be the sanitary reasons. If you buy a brand-new trumpet, you won’t have to worry about the hygiene about the product that you buy which is not something that you encounter in a used product. You won’t also have to worry about any defect that the trumpet that you buy will have since it is less likely to have any defects such as playing some notes.

That being said, it always makes sense to buy a used instrument if you want to save some money as long as you’re careful about some things that need to be looked for when you’re making your choice.

The first thing that we want to say if you decide to buy a used instrument is to buy a new mouthpiece for the sanitary purposes. Also, make sure that you do the proper research and ask a lot of questions to the seller to avoid any potential issues that you might encounter later.

The most common issues that musical students encounter include having issues with playing some notes, scratches and other defects on the instrument. That is why, counterintuitively, it might be a better choice to get a used trumpet if you’re an advanced player since you will have a better understanding of the product that you’re trying to buy which is very important to avoid buying a trumpet that has some defects on it.

Renting is another option to obtain a trumpet which is something that mostly beginners or musical students who are going to play the instrument for a short period of time prefer. It can be a great option to buying if you’re not sure about how long you’re going to play the instrument for.

It is also worth mentioning that you will be responsible for all the damages that will happen on the trumpet that you buy if you decide to rent instead of buy which is a negative aspect of renting.

By cleaning, we mean that you need to be able to clean both outside and the inside of the trumpet that you buy regularly. You need to oil the instrument on a regular basis and that is why buying a valve oil and a slide grease might make sense.

Buyer’s Guide

Which is Better, Buying or Renting?

There are two ways to get an instrument. You can either buy or rent one. While some people prefer to buy an instrument, some people prefer to rent. However, we always suggest buying a clarinet instead of renting one if you want to get serious about playing a clarinet and there are a lot of reasons for it that we will talk about below.

  • It is a good idea to buy a clarinet instead of renting one since it can be very effective for saving money. Even though it sounds counterintuitive, buying can save you some money since there are a lot of products that have a reasonable price tag in today’s market.
  • We believe it is always a good idea to buy a clarinet if you’re serious about playing it since you will never be sure about the quality and the condition of the product that you rent. On the other hand, you will not encounter such problem if opt for buying instead of renting.
  • It is possible to sell the clarinet that you buy in case you don’t want to use your instrument for some reason such as being more advanced. In that case, you can sell your clarinet and get a new one which is something you can’t do if you rent a clarinet.

What are Clarinets Made of?

There are different materials used when making a clarinet from plastic, ebonite to wood. Most people think that wooden clarinets are the highest quality clarinets in the market which is not necessarily true since every material has its own advantages or disadvantages.

First of all, there is not apparent evidence that a wooden clarinet sounds better. Also, ebonite or plastic clarinets tend to be more durable and endure better against the drops which is essential since there is a good chance that you will drop your clarinet eventually which is especially true if you’re in a marching band.

How Much Does a Clarinet Cost?

Clarinets can range from less than $100 to over $3,000 and it really depends on what you’re looking for in a clarinet. It is possible to get an advanced clarinet from the get go if you’re confident that you will stick with your habit.

However, it makes sense to get a cheaper one and get a new and more expensive one as you get more advanced since the money that you spend on an expensive clarinet will go to waste if you don’t use it for a long time.
