Okay, here's a fun little novelty item.  1st off, a pocket trumpet IS NOT a piccolo trumpet which is pitched an octave above.  This is a regular sized trumpet where the tubing is bent more so that it fits into a smaller size.  There are several of these on the market.  Most of them are cheap e-bay/generic specials.  Those are cute, but the play is rather toyish.   I had a generic one, but when I had a chance to play this Wisemann , I found out it was an order of magnitude better..bigger tubing, better valves, MUCH larger bell and greater playability approaching that of a regular trumpet.   This is the large bell DPT-400,   the Canadian Brass used to sell this horn on their website.   I found this horn  great for travel being able to place it in the "carry on luggage" (With the commuters you checked it at plane side).   Okay, I once had to entertain the TSA agents who just HAD to see what popped up on their x-ray!  It does have pack straps so it's great for the bicyclist, scuba diver, or sky diver (okay maybe just the cyclist). 

Even though this item is in the garage sale you can return less shipping and 20% restocking fee. 7 day evaluation.

"I'm very pleased with my purchase of the Wisemann pocket trumpet.  It's a great little instrument.  I understand why some of the pros buy these for practicing while on vacation; I'll easily be able to take it with me when traveling.  While I'll play for the joy of it, I'm aiming to get good enough to sit in with my church's praise band sometime.  As a once-upon-a-time french horn player, I'm enjoying the challenge!"   [ Jeff bought the horn pictured above which is a garage item]
