Stagg WS - TR245

Nasir Ali PoTr-05


+ Good valve and slide action.
+ Surprising tone.
+ Decent mouthpiece.

+ Well-presented.
+ Accurate tuning.
+ Budget-friendly.


It is a nice model that is priced comfortably, nothing feels cheap on it. It has a nice weight and finish, the tone is warm and bright and it comes with its own trumpet case perfect for its smaller dimensions.

It needs a liberal amount of lubrication but it is a good starter option to try before you commit to buying a higher-priced model. It would make a nice gift purchase for a younger instrument learner to help kindle their interest without a large investment.
