This is the most popular Bb trumpet offered by CarolBrass. The 5000L-YLT is a remarkably responsive and versatile horn. It can be used in virtually any setting. Adding heavy valve caps and the right mouthpiece makes it very suitable for “legit” playing, while with a shallower mouthpiece it is an outstanding lead trumpet with excellent slotting above the staff, and especially above high C.

CarolBrass CPT-3000-GLS-Bb-S

The CarolBrass Pocket Trumpet has earned a reputation as one of the best pocket trumpets on the market. The CPT-3000-GLS has a full sized gold brass bell that accepts conventional mutes. The horn is very versatile. It sounds like a trumpet with a medium or shallow mouthpiece and more like a cornet with a deep mouthpiece. When played with a Wedge flugel top and trumpet shank it sounds almost like a flugel. It has a huge sound for such a compact horn and the pitch is excellent. It even has a working first and third valve side to adjust pitch. This horn is just plain fun to play, and sounds great.

$935 USD. ($1225 CAD for Canadian customers)

Everyone is amazed at the sound that comes out of this tiny horn. Image compares the Mini Pocket to a full sized Bb trumpet and a silver CB Pocket trumpet.
