Getzen 400 Series Trumpets have been used by many generations of beginning brass players. Although they are entry level instruments in the Getzen product line 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 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.
USA made, the Getzen Company proudly employs specialist brass technicians and master craftsmen to ensure only the finest instruments bear the Getzen name. Top quality and reliable valve action.
