    Cecilio Trumpets

    Anyone have any input on these Cecilio trumpets? They must be cheaply made, but how are they just as a horn to mess around on? They look flashy.

    Re: Cecilio Trumpets

    I personally haven't ordered one, so I can't assess how bad they are, but I wouldn't even consider them if I were you.

    What would you use this trumpet for?

    For a student horn, don't buy anything other than major brands, used or new, would be my advice.

    Yamaha, Bach, Jupiter, Holton, Olds, Getzen, Blessing...

    Re: Cecilio Trumpets

    I'd only use it to mess around on. I play a Bach Stat 37 as my primary horn.

    Considering the Cecilio as a "throw down" horn.......just for fun.

    Do you know of mechanical problems, like the valves sticking, or things of that nature? I thought that Monel valves were OK (heard Maynard used them when he was playing Holton horns).

    From the price it seems clear they are not a top of the line horn.

    Your opinion.

    Bro welcome to trumpetmaster. Monel valves are great if they are inside a pro level horn, a cecilio horn is chinese made. No good at all. Mass produced and cheap materials offer up a disaster with a troopers name all over it.

    You must practice abstinance when the thought of this horn enters your mind.

    Thanks Piper. I believe Grasshopper has snatched this pebble from your hand.

    you don't want to mess with those horns trooper. the valves will work for a couple of months and then self-destruct.

    I bought a cecilio pocket trumpet. It sounds very good, but, the valves aren't that great.
