I recently bought a pocket trumpet from this store, which was an ad on TM. It was about $130 and made my cecilio, which, I know isn't a great brand. I didn't have the money to get a jean bastiste from Sam Ash, so, I said ok. It shipped very promptly. When I opened the box, I could see that the case that was showed on their site was not the case I received. Ok. the trumpet looked good. The valves were sticky, but it was cold, so, I used it some. I have to say, it has an amazing sound and no backpressure whatsoever. I looked in the bell and could see this must have been sitting somewhere in a basement for a long while. The valves seem to have broken in some. I know you get what you pay for, but just a little warning if anyone goes to this online store.
