Designed with the beginner in mind, the Blues 051 offers a supportive resistance, full sound and easy playing characteristics. This is an excellent starter instrument. On the third valve slide there is an adjustable finger ring. This is a great thought and is ideal for growing hands and fingers! The trumpet is built using a rose brass lead pipe and has a lacquered finish. The outer coat to the slides is nickel and the third slide has a water key on it (brilliant for beginners to find that hidden water). It is quite a light trumpet but still feels a sturdy and stable instrument to hold.
