The Getzen 400 Series instruments are designed for young musicians and serious amateurs alike. These trumpet provides professional quality sound combined with the durability that is needed for the school setting. These instruments have been used by generations of brass players and although they are the least expensive in the Getzen line, they are truly more than just "student" instruments. The 400 Series can only be compared to intermediate models from other manufacturers.
The 400 Series trumpets feature warm sounding gold brass bells along with corrosion resistant nickel-silver tubing to give the player an advantage over what many people refer to as "student model" instruments. These instruments are an exceptional value, built to encourage serious young musicians. The 400 Series is especially free-blowing, an aspect of the line that gives their players the ability to endure the long practice sessions needed to create their own musical sound.
All 400 Series trumpets come with a very "cool", functional and light form-fitted case with a shoulder strap. The tremendous quality, attention to detail, and fast nickel plated valves with a lifetime guaranty make these instruments a great value.
Specifications: Two piece bell, .460 bore, nickel plated very smooth valves, now with 1st slide thumb saddle, adjustable 3rd slide finger ring, light weight ProTec-style case with shoulder strap, 7C mouthpiece.
We made this the best value in an Intermediate instrument.
Alex, I received the Getzen 490 today and everything appears to be great! I had a chance to run a couple of scales and it appears to be exactly as advertised, and you are right it does have a cool case. I appreciate the expeditious manner in which the transaction was accomplished and when I get ready for another new horn (maybe a Zeus?) I will certainly come back to you. I have passed on your web site to the members of our local Civic band, and I'm sure news will spread rapidly at school when my son gets his hands on this instrument. Again thank you for everything.
