I bought this Trumpet for the sole purpose of being able to practice while on vacations. I anticipated an instrument that was more of a "for lack of better words" toy! What I received was a beautifully made full fledged Trumpet!! The sound that this pocket Trumpet puts out is amazing. Nice valve action and a great case too!! I am super pleased with my new travel companion. Couple it with a silent brass system and I can play anywhere I want. Would definitely buy again from ACB, nice job guys and great horn too!!

we have just received shipping confirmation of our next batch of these so order today to lock in the previous year pricing. Once they are in from the customs broker the price will go up.
ACB is the sole US Distributor of these amazing horns
This horn plays and sounds like a real trumpet.
Full size 4.84-inch Gold Brass trumpet bell
Yellow brass tubing
Stainless Steel Valves - super smooth, free, and FAST!
Lightweight valve trim in nickel silver
traditional waterkeys (which I far Prefer over Amado style keys)
Bore .460 ML
Superb lightweight semi-rigid hard cordura case and mouthpiece included!
Better than my old Benge and Carol Blackhawk with heavyweight valve caps.. It is the closest to a full size trumpet that I have played so far and I like it more and more each day. I am just heading out to a jazz recording session now and all I'm taking is this pocket! Amazing value in this horn folks!
I tried this beast at ITG2015. Man, was I shocked at the immediate, in-your-face response of this horn. It is solid, easy to hold, and does it ever sing!
I had no experience with Manchester Brass before, but was pleasingly astounded by this horn. It is a gorgeous, awesome-sounding, well-made, ergonomic, professional grade pocket trumpet. Nice case, too. Don't let the price fool you. IMHO, it sounds better, and is physically easier to handle than others considerably more expensive. This little beauty is the bomb!
