Bb Trumpet with Clear-lacquered Brass Body, .454″ Bore, and Yellow Brass Bell
A Top-shelf Student Trumpet
The Eastman ETR221 is a top-notch student-level trumpet that’s popular with beginners and their school directors alike, thanks to its classroom-tested durability and near-effortless playability. Benefit from beginner-friendly breath resistance, along with outstanding tonality and functionality, courtesy of a .454-inch, medium bore. The ETR221’s nickel-silver outer slides are built to withstand the rigors of the band room, while its first-valve thumb saddle and third-valve ring trigger facilitate easy adjustments. This outstanding trumpet boasts a hand-spun, hand-graduated, wire-reinforced yellow brass bell, which creates a balanced feel that encourages proper playing posture. The ETR221 includes a clear lacquer finish, which looks great and lends a warm sheen to your overall sound.
Tailor-made for dedicated students
One of the primary reasons why budding trumpeters and their instructors appreciate the ETR221 is that it will last well past the time when a student is ready for a step-up instrument. This trumpet provides a comfortable level of breath resistance for newer players, and its .454-inch, medium bore offers the perfect balance between tonality and functionality. This horn’s nickel-silver outer slides yield extra durability. The ETR221’s first-valve thumb saddle facilitates easy adjustments, while its third valve includes a ring trigger.
High-quality handspun bell
The Eastman ETR221 includes a hand-spun, hand-graduated yellow brass bell. This rugged, wire-reinforced bell also features a torch-annealed tail. This bell is extremely lightweight, giving this trumpet a balanced feel — a must for beginning players who aren’t used to holding a horn in the correct position for a long time. Bad posture leads to improper breathing, off-kilter intonation, and can become an ingrained habit that impedes a student’s progress. The ETR221 features a clear lacquer finish that not only looks great, it also lends a warm sheen to the trumpet’s tonality.
Eastman: crafting fine instruments since 1992
Accomplished flutist Qian Ni founded Eastman in 1992 after graduating from the Boston University School of Music. Eastman started as a one-man operation, with Ni selling instruments out of the back of his car. Today, Eastman is a global maker of musical instruments, but they’ve never lost sight of their humble beginnings. Players — both students and professionals alike — searching for an instrument with outstanding sound, comfortable playability, and traditional craftsmanship will find exactly what they’re looking for from Eastman.
