Beginner Student Trumpets

Starting a musical journey with a reliable, quality trumpet is the key to a successful experience. Meyer Music offers brand-name student level trumpets as rent-to-own, matching teacher preferences with accessories included.

Step-Up Trumpets

As a player progresses, their instrument should match their growing skills. A student level trumpet is a great way to start a musical journey and a Step-Up trumpet will take a player even further.

Meyer Music offers an array of high-end trumpet brands, including Yamaha, B & S, Bach, Cannonball, Eastman, Jupiter, Schmidt, Shires and XO.  As Michigan’s only Shokunin Yamaha dealer, their premier level, we also provide access to a wide range of advanced Yamaha options.

What is the difference?

Student Trumpets are made of metals designed for affordability and durability, such as stainless steel pistons.

Step-Up Trumpets are available in silver plating for a brighter sound and are made of higher-grade materials, such as monel pistons for durability and nickel silver slides for smoother operation.

Student Trumpets are typically made with a machine-drawn, two-piece bell, making the trumpet more affordable.

Step-Up Trumpets feature a one-piece, hand-hammered bell with fewer seams which creates better resonance.
