Tiger Trumpet

Radical plastic trumpet.

The world's first truly functional plastic trumpet available in brightly colored ABS Plastic. The Tiger is durable, playable, fun and affordable.

Ideal for everyone - from younger students, school bands on budget, marching bands, players that need a back-up trumpet (for times not practical to bring other instrument) to professional players - or for any trumpet player that wants a unique addition to their trumpet collection. Currently available in four colors - blue, red, pink and purple. Where will you play your Tiger?

Destined to be tremendously popular, the Tiger Trumpet possesses a satisfying timbre, surprisingly good valve action, and a stunning appearance. It is sure to be a conversation starter on the bandstand. It comes with a 3C Delrin mouthpiece designed by Warburton and a lightweight plastic case.

The Tiger Trumpet is a successful collaboration of brass Instrument designer and manufacturer, Mr. Sun JD, Rheinsound Music of Beijing, Kidd Industries plastic injection molding, and Terry Warburton of the USA.

The designer is Mr. Sun JD, chief trumpeter of The General Political Department of the PLA Art Troupe. He has 40 years of experience playing the trumpet. Tiger Trumpet is his research achievement of many years. Beijing Rheinsound Music is responsible for manufacturing and marketing the instruments. Warburton Music participates in product quality supervision and final inspection of the finished products.

This is the first truly playable plastic (ABS plastic) trumpet manufactured. It may look like a toy but after you play one, you realize that it is indeed a musical instrument.

The parts are meticulously manufactured by Sun JD Industries, and then assembled in John’s (Qiang Zhong) brass instrument factory by the same skilled people who build the fine line of RheinSound Design trombones and trumpets. John’s experienced team of assemblers is familiar with the precision required to assemble a brass instrument – ensuring that each Tiger Trumpet is built correctly.

        Comments about Tiger Trumpet Plastic Bb Trumpet:

        The trumpet is unplayable because of the flawed construction of the valves. They stick, stick, stick.
        I tried to clean them and oil them (always with the recommended oil) every day in the hope that they would break up, but no, no way. They are made with aluminum, I do not know why they choose this kind of material, but it does not work. The sticky valves make the trumpet difficult and frustrating to play.
        What a pity because the trumpet sound great and it is responsive.

        Comments about Tiger Trumpet Plastic Bb Trumpet:

        The trumpet is OK and I would buy it again. But I believe that the one that I received from Music 123 was used. In fact, the slide grease jar was half empty and the remaining grease really looked like some fingers had taken some amount of grease. I am not sure 100 % that the trumpet is not new, perhaps it is a demo, or a returned one, but I paid for a new one (although with a discount coupon). The instrument itself is fun and very playable with a beautiful sound.

              I wanted to like this trumpet because I fully support affordable instruments, but the build quality is so poor. It sounds like a trumpet no doubt, but the valves are just awful and it feels fragile. I had to send it back. No good.

              It was built just above a toy level. Would not last long in my opinion.
