Buying a Student Trumpet online is an option that many student trumpet players parents consider due to the convenience, financing available and front door delivery. Buying a student trumpet online need not be a difficult proposition if one conducts a little research using a Student Trumpet Buyers Guide. My first student trumpet was a Bundy and it lasted me for many years. That Bundy, from 1970, was a very nice student trumpet that lasted me through 1978 when I received my first professional model trumpet. Parents may also wish to buy a Used Professional Model Trumpet for their student.
The student trumpets of higher quality would include B&S, Bach, Blessing, Bundy, Getzen, Giardinelli, Kanstul, and Yamaha, starting as low as $199.00 and up to $1000.00 or so. A quality student trumpet may last your student trumpet player all the way through high school. It is unnecessary to buy a silver plated student trumpet and silver plating will add to the total price of the student trumpet. I am now 55 years old and I still play a professional model trumpet finished in lacquered brass. Brass lacquer is just fine for a beginning trumpet players first trumpet.
A student trumpet should be purchased from a reputable musical instrument dealer or at a local musical instrument store !
