Comments about Giardinelli GTR 812 Masters Series Pro Trumpet:
I purchased this horn based upon its low price as compared to the other professional horns out there and on the many positive reviews I have read over the internet, sight unseen and having never played it. A bit of a gamble, but well worth it! I just received my brand new GTR 812 and first impression is: WOW, this is a gorgeous and well constructed horn!! The pictures just don't do it justice. The heavyweight design, quality construction, and beautiful silverplate make this a very visually appealing horn. And it is a REAL heavyweight. The upper and lower valve caps are VERY substantial (solid billet aluminum) as is the bracing. You can't really tell from the pictures but there is even a brace on back of the bell crook. It is heavier than any trumpet I have ever played but feels good and is well balanced in my hand. Valve action is outstanding, it plays awesome, and the tone is darker and richer than my Olds Superstar, for example; very well suited to jazz and blues. I am very happy with it and hope to get a lot of enjoyment out of it in the years to come! The one negative is that the case it came in is not the one pictured and pretty cheesy for a "pro" horn. This is easily correctable however, and even with the money I spend on a new case, it still brings this in way below any other comparable model.
