    Absolutely! I used TinEye.com to search the picture of JZ's TBS-Bb Trumpet, which TinEye found all over the web as a Bach Stradivarius. This doesn't mean they are bad horns. But it makes you wonder about whoever's importing them.

    Check them out on Welcome to the Baltimore Brass Co.
    They at least have pictures of the horns themselves. From what I've heard from people they are pretty much $400 bach clones... to the point where bach parts even fit. I've only played the pocket trumpet, but it seems to play well.

    Re: J Z Trumpet

    Baltimore Brass is a great place, located in Catonsville, Maryland. I tried the JZ flugelhorn at Baltimore Brass. It wasn't bad for the money, but definitely lesser quality than a professional quality horn.

    Anyone know how the valves hold up over time? In the end, I wonder if a used Getzen or Yamaha (or a new Dillon or Austin Custom Brass) flugel wouldn't be a better option for the same money.
