Getzen 300/400 Series Trumpets have been used by many generations of beginning brass
players. Although they are entry level instruments in the Getzen product line 390 and 490
Trumpets are far more than what other manufacturers consider "student line" instruments.
Both models feature nickel silver inside slide tubing and hand spun, seamless bells
with wire reinforced rims making them durable enough to stand up to the demands of a classroom setting.
490 Trumpets are designed to provide musicians with the higher quality sound and
performance they want without sacrificing the durability they need. 490 Trumpets have
many of the same great features of the 390 with the addition of a standard first valve
saddle, gold brass mouthpipe, and hand spun, seamless gold brass bell. This makes
the 490 a warm sounding, free blowing trumpet for the player looking for a superior
instrument at an exceptional value.
Made and assembled in the USA
