Student Trumpet – Blessing B127

The Blessing B127 Trumpet is just right for the quality-conscious buyer looking for a bargain! This trumpet is recognized globally as a standard in student trumpets. It is exceptionally responsive to the needs of the beginning trumpeter and its broad range and consistent intonation allow a student to begin band with enthusiasm, and to continue with confidence. And most importantly, it’s well made and easy on your pocketbook!

The E.K. Blessing company has a legacy of fine craftsmanship dating from 1906, in Elkhart, Indiana. Blessing has manufactured trumpets and cornets for other musical instrument companies under various brand names – giving some present day competitors their start in the brasswind business!

You could pay more for a student trumpet, but that might not be wise. Take a look at the specifications for the Blessing B127 Trumpet, and you’ll see why it is our best selling trumpet. Ours includes a hardshell wooden case, which is an upgrade from the standard plastic case.
