Our trumpets are precision made. During the pre-shipment inspection, the valves are oiled and checked for correct operation, and all of the tuning slides are greased and checked for free movement.
To enable the instrument to be played, only the mouthpiece needs to be fitted. Fit the mouthpiece carefully by easing it into the mouthpiece tube until a firm, airtight connection has been achieved.
Warning: Do not force or knock the mouthpiece into the mouthpiece tube. Doing so will cause damage not covered by the warranty and is likely to require specialist equipment and trained personnel to remove it safely.
With the mouthpiece correctly fitted, the instrument is now ready to play.
For your convenience, a cleaning cloth, valve oil and shoulder strap are included. Four tuning slides are also incorporated into your trumpet. These enable the fine tuning and intonation of the instrument to be adjusted. For guidance on their use, we recommend that you seek advice from your music teacher, instrument teacher, technician or local music store.
There are many tutor books, videos and CD ROM tutors available from musical instrument or sheet music stores to help you teach yourself to play the trumpet. We would also recommend you take lessons with a qualified trumpet teacher.
