Let's get started by taking a close look at the Yamaha YTR-2330S. If you want to find a beautiful trumpet with a consistent, vibrant tone, Yamaha claims that this is the one you should get. It has an adjustable third valve trigger, which also means that it’s really comfortable to play and makes it easier for you to play with proper technique. It’s high-quality, and Yamaha is a good brand that seems to have success, no matter what kind of musical instrument they make!
The challenger is the Jean Paul USA TR-330. Let’s move on to number 4 on our list! Jean Paul prides themselves on making professional instruments that are good for student to professional players and affordable price tag so that anybody can afford to play an instrument. Does this mean that they’re cheap and bad? No! The TR-330 is everything a beginner needs from his trumpet, and the tone is nice and warm. It’s easy to play and it looks beautiful with a nice gold lacquer finish.
When you buy an instrument from Yamaha, you know what you get, and it’s great for trumpeters that don’t consider themselves risk takers.
Everything a beginner needs to get started is included. You get a nice carrying case, trumpet valve oil, a cleaning cloth, and gloves. If you need to buy a trumpet for a beginner but don’t know what to buy, go for this one! You won’t be disappointed! It’s good for all kinds of music, which is good, because a beginner will most often play many different genres before they find their specialty. Therefore it’s good to get a trumpet like this one, that is very versatile and works for almost anything.
