So here’s what I think. It’s portable, playable and super affordable! It has all the characteristics of its full size sibling, the (ETR-380) trumpet. I’ve never played a pocket trumpet in my life so I was very skeptical on the playability of these style horns. I’m very impressed with the overall build and sound quality of this model! It’s basically a full trumpet that has been processed through a Willy Wonka machine and shrunken down hahahaha! It’s got the sound and feel of a full size horn but in a little package! This is an excellent option for learning to play or giggling around with friends! You can keep this in your practice studio, car or work place for quick practice routines! Me personally, I’ve got this in my couch for quick practicing during TV commercials and it’s there when I get quick bursts of inspiration! It’s a super cool conversation piece that will baffle people’s minds when they hear it! Excellent option for kids wanting to learn but can’t carry the weight of a full size trumpet!
Trumpet looks sharp!
Carrying case is awesome!
The sound is tremendous!!!
VERY pleased with this purchase!
I'm a trombone player by trade, had a machinist friend make me a sleeve to accommodate my t-bone mouthpiece. Plays like a champ!!!
Works very well for beginners to intermediates.
Looks good sounds good plays good
Great little trumpet and amazing price too. Arrived very quickly and was as described.
Great little trumpet! It is well built and looks awesome.
very nice trumpet and carrying case using it for traveling fits in my suitcase nicely plays as nice as my full size trumpet
The size of this pocket trumpet not only is a great practice instrument, but is a nice performing instrument as well.
I am truly impressed with the quality of the Easter Pocket Trumpet.
I bought this for my Godson who plays in the High School Band, more as a novelty, but the quality is TOP Notch. Everyone in the Band wants to play it. It has big horn size.
I love the price and also it become my daily trumpet
I bought as a gift and have t heard it played yet, but I did open to check it out and it looks great! Good quality and a fun gift for the price!
Great instrument for the price and good sound quality.

Every aspect is beautiful

The trumpet was actually better than I expected. It was in a perfect little case and is perfect for the price paid.

It was worth it for the money

My son loves this trumpet, the sound is great!
My son loves it and plays like a pro.
Awesome for the price. I use it for practicing when in a space/time crunch. Highly recommend
It's so cute! I can't wait for my son to open it Christmas Morning! He loves Trumpets!
Loved the quality of product. Only down fall is the 3rd valve has a tendency to stick. Other than than great product !
Interesting, practical and easy to clean

Bought this for my daughters ninth birthday and she loves it. Her brother is teaching her to play.
It’s clear that this is far better than the trumpets in this price range when I was in school. Would recommend to anyone (like myself) who played back in school and wants to pick it back up.
Eactly what I expected
Great little novelty trumpet. Works well and plays really nice. Has a better tone than I expected.
Craftsmanship is good. Great sound!
It's a solid item, easy to learn on.
Makin music. Works well. Also it's adorable
Sounds great. Perfect for a student. The only problem was the valves were not tightened.
Beautiful horn. Solid and sounds good. I’m learning but still seems good quality. Excellent deal.
Christmas present for my son. He loved it, few of his band friends wanted to check it out.
Excellent quality. My son prefers thos over his trumpet. Just buy it.
I was very happy when I received this cute little trumpet. I have played the trumpet on and off for 42 years. It played beautifully right out of the box. It even sounds better than my full size trumpet. I would highly recommend this to any level of player.
I HAVE NO DISLIKES AT ALL FOR THIS PURCHASE,THE QUALITY IS GREAT!
Small size works wonderful is tone really good value for the many
For the Price, it plays great!!
My son loves it, we had issue with the first one, but they exchanged it without a problem, this one is great.

This was a good product for the cost! My son actually has 2 of these! We turned one into a lamp for his music room, and one he plays regularly. He’s in high school, and his friends also admire the horn because it is unique. It sounds good and it plays well! We are happy!
Excellent construction. All joints fit perfectly. Nickel finish and lacquer are flawless.
It looks like a toy in my big man hands, but it plays just like a full sized trumpet! The sound is slightly brighter but, for the price, I absolutely don’t mind. It’s very portable and is fun to show off to other musicians. Worth every penny!
Well made, compact, beautifull
This is better than I imagined. The values work well, nice tone. Very happy with it.
Great little trumpet. Easy to carry around anywhere and fun to play.
Plays really well. I use it as a travel Trump so when I go on trips I can take it with me and practice. I also use if for practice. Just beware because it’s a smaller instrument you will hear the notes a lot louder than a traditional trumpet.
Definitely a great product for the price. While it's obviously not going to produce the same sound as a high tier instrument, it sounds great to an untrained ear. Its also super portable and comfortable to play and hold.
Great sounding little horn, fun and easy to play, be sure to give a little bath when you first get it, or at the very least clean the manufacturing dirt out of valve casings, she’ll play like a expensive one!!
This is an excellent little horn for the money. A great way to practice without lugging around my full size trumpet, and it looks excellent as well!
Nice compact trumpet with a very nice sound for a very good price. What else can you ask for. Great for student level and traveling
I played trumpet in high school and a bit in college. I'd always wanted a pocket trumpet so when I saw this one, I went ahead and bought it. I thought it would be some cheap, light horn, but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It has a nice tone and a really good feel in the hands...has some weight to it and feels like a sturdy instrument. Very happy with this purchase!
A random joe
so I don't play trumpet, kid does. my ear is fairly good with tones, and this sounds very similar to his Yamaha student trumpet. he says some of the functionality "feels a bit cheaper". but he's comparing a $1500 trumpet to this. like the valve movement isn't as good or something. but he still plays really well with this. he got it as a novelty, but this really is a great starter trumpet I'd say.
This is not a professional trumpet. Not even close. But for what you pay and what you get, this is pretty extraordinary. When I blew the first few notes on this horn, I literally said "wow" out loud. For something so small, the sound is big, and if you need to travel with something just to keep your chops warm, this will definitely do.
This trumpet is constructed pretty well and sounds great! I would highly recommend getting a mute like a Pampet mute if you live in a place where the neighbors complain or if you're trying to practice in secret so you can surprise loved ones with a performance after months of training. Shhh!
Anyway, this is a great item if your looking into picking up the trumpet. It's a great starter. Remember to work on your chops!

This is the 4th Eastar instrument that I purchased.I played trumpet in high school and a bit in college. I'd always wanted a pocket trumpet so when I saw this one, I went ahead and bought it.

Sounds very good.looks very good.
works very good.I,m really enjoying
this mini trumpet.
I bought this for my son, who is in 6th grade beginner band. He is learning tuba at school, but I wanted him to have other brass options as well. Also, I played trumpet in school band so I may be somewhat biased. I haven't played in many years, but i picked up on it again very quickly with this trumpet. Easy to play, great tone and compact. Like others have said, don't expect a professional instrument, but for the price this can't be beat. The case is also well made. It's a soft exterior, but the interior is sturdy enough to protect the instrument. I attached a few photos to give anyone interested an idea of the size.
Clean resonating sound no airy notes and lightweight.
It sounds almost exactly like my current king trumpet and has a nice tone. Fits my 5c Bach mouthpiece nicely and all the slides are perfectly greased when it comes in. Overall I say the price was worth it and I’m happy with my purchase.
The trumpet itself came in great condition with no scratches or dings, the valves and slides move very freely, and the tuning and all-over sound was great! The storage case it came with wasn’t top quality, but it was good enough for the price. It also included a 7C mouthpiece, cleaning tools, a small thing of valve oil , and I guess some white playing gloves that might’ve fit Frodo Baggins....All in all, for $120 it’s definitely worth the price.
I accidentally ordered the wrong color for my trumpet, but when it arrived I decided to keep it. Customer Service was gracious about my mistake.
I am continuously amazed at the quality of Easter instruments at such an affordable price. The Pocket Trumpet far exceeded my expectations. Bright, shiny, nickel plated brass looks sharp! It comes with everything pictured in the description: Trumpet, Mouthpiece, gloves, cleaning cloth, valve oil, cleaning brushes, and strap for the included hard case. Most important is it plays and sounds beautiful, and at about half the size of a normal trumpet! I am very impressed with this buy and would recommend it to anyone, beginner to advanced.
