Good value for the price
A little shoddy in finish
I bought a Tristar standard quality trumpet on Ebay for less than £45 sterling in Autumn 2005. It's a good little instrument in every respect, except for a slight lack of workmanship in the finish - one valve slide, once removed, was difficult to get back in because the tubing was slightly misaligned, and there were also odd places where the silver plate was missing (very small areas).
It played in tune throughout the register.
It came complete with a reasonably serviceable case and a good mouthpiece.
I would strongly recommend this for a beginner: a much better option than laying out 4 times as much for a Yamaha or Besson and finding the child gives up after a few weeks!
I have posted a review for a 4 valve Tristar euphonium under the heading "Tuba".
