“Love it that much I bought a second one! (PT280N)”

Written on: 17/12/2013

Very impressed with this trumpet for its price . The sound quality is great. There is a difference in quality between the 2 instruments but still for the price it is good. My 6 year old son is finding it much easier to play than a standard trumpet more due to the length. I have had no problems with the valves and on both instruments they are working fine. The case is great and this instrument came with a cleaning cloth and gloves. This has been of benefit in teaching my son how to care for his… Read Full Review

“Disapointed”

Go about $650 or more on a professional model. These are toys or decorations. Tuner doesn't work for the horn… Read Full Review

“Cecllo TT-280BL not that good”

Written on: 25/01/2013 by nomed911 (1 review written)

Well, I bought a blue laqure trumpet DEC 16, i got it around the 21st. the over all sound I think is OK but i am no expert so. The problem is with the lacquer coat. I played for about 2 hours 3days a week and the lacquer started to come off by about the 2ed week currently i have used hot water and a stripper the comes from home depot to get the remaining lacquer off. then i will be plating it. if i were to buy a trumpet again i would not buy a lacquer one. or i would have the stripper ready… Read Full Review

“This Cecilio brand pocket trumpet is a horrible...”

Written on: 02/11/2010

This Cecilio brand pocket trumpet is a horrible instrument to waste your money on. It may look good when you first but it, but once you start using it, the lacquer starts to wear off and it gets stains from the oil on your hands after a while. Don't get black lacquer if you get one. It comes with valve oil, but that doesn't help the problem that the valves are terrible and they always stick. It has a decent sound quality though for the price. (I paid about $150 for mine) I would have liked to… Read Full Review

Its made in Mainland China and cost approx $135. You will positively not be able to get any quality trumpet at that price and I do know what I'm taking about.
<br/>Buyers Beware!

This trumpet is probably the worst I've ever heard. If you're looking for a good quality trumpet do some more research, there are better trumpets out there then this. It's always a good idea to do research before you buy an instrument, so you can know what you're getting is good quality. NEVER buy and instrument on how it looks, like some people do and they end up with ones like this… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/10/2006 by pro trumpet (2 reviews written)

Here's what to watch out for when buying a Cecilio Musical Instruments Pocket Trumpet, or any trumpet:

"Teacher approved," "Not a throw away," "German type," "It has a serial number!", "This is a genuine," "This is not a Cheap imitation" or "You won't find a better Instrument at this price etc. Low end cheap Trumpets with names you have never heard of usually are unrepairable because music stores won't sell them for good reason, and don't carry the parts. Most of these "Instruments" are made… Read Full Review

323450_Anderman5's Response to pro trumpet's Review

Written on: 10/11/2007

Recently, while searching for a professional grade trumpet for myself and a beginner's trumpet for a friend, I asked the trumpet specialist at Chuck Levy's Washington Music Center about the quality of Cecilio trumpets. He stated his professional opinion by replying, "WHAT kind of trumpet?". The point here is, if you're serious about playing an instrument, even as a beginner, look for well-known brand names, even if they are more expensive. I could tell the brand and model of every trumpeter I know, not because I memorize this kind of thing, but because they all fall into the range of King, Bach, Yamaha, Getzen, Jupiter, and Schilke. I'm not saying these are the only acceptable trumpet brands, but these are some of the most dependable trumpets anyone can buy.
