Which are the best trumpets for beginners? Whether you want to start playing the trumpet or introduce the little ones in the house to wind instruments, the question always arises about what is the ideal range to start with. What makes the price of a beginner trumpet reasonable? What do you have to look for to know if a trumpet is easy to play and will last?
The answer: The trumpet must fit you, and you must fit the trumpet. Here we leave you a summary of the best trumpets for any beginner to develop their skills without limits.
With perfectly working pistons, the TR 200 is an excellent Bb trumpet for beginners or as a second instrument. With a clean and defined sound and a brilliant appearance thanks to the brass mouthpiece, and the pistons. An instrument that will last you years, with reliable quality, and for only 149 euros. It is delivered inside a soft case and a little oil to carry out the maintenance of the instrument.
Especially for those who have no experience: the mouthpiece is as important as the instrument itself. There are as many variations as there are facial expressions the muscles of the lips can make. Most trumpets include a standard mouthpiece, but there is no standard for the lips. So keep this piece in mind.

It requires less air to respond than higher-end models from the same German manufacturer. A recommendation for true wind instrument enthusiasts.
It usually happens especially with the parents of the youngest students in the house. A pocket trumpet is small, handy, and light, but the music teacher doesn’t see it the same way. They are not easier to play just because they are smaller, but they can be ideal as a second instrument. There is no point in starting with a pocket trumpet.
Without a doubt, this model is more affordable. Gone are the days when beginners had to invest lots of money before hitting the first note. This model with the easy response and smooth pistons is part of our 5000 series, with gems like the TR 500 L. This trumpet with stainless steel valves has everything a beginner needs. And if you still want something of higher quality you can bet on the TR-5000 SGK Bb trumpet model, for example.
