Excellent value for the money.
I am on my second one (silver plated) although the sound seems slightly brighter on my older laquered model.
Why pay the price for a Benge, you won't notice any difference! In my opinion, Slightly difficult for young hands to hold comfortably. I normally play a Yamaha trumpet -cornet as well as Conn, Olds and Besson models, but always carry the Jupiter in the car.
My pupils love it and my eldest granddaughter started to play trumpet on this model.
Buy one! (read more)

Jupiter 416BL Pocket: If you need a trumpet for real music, pay the money and get a Benge or Kanstul. If you just want to be a joke trumpeter, or annoy other musicians, get one of these. (read more)

The Jupiter 416BL is without doubt the best pocket trumpet around at the price. Why buy the "next one up" (Benge) when you cannot tell the difference in sound and save £700 / £800. (read more)
