E.M. Winston • Boston • c2000
Winston evidently imports these instruments, probably from Taiwan or China. I would say the quality is decent and the instrument is quite playable – but not up to the construction or playing quality of Jupiter.
From what I’ve observed, Winston sold two versions of their pocket trumpet. This is the earlier type; the second being a “taller” profile, which would be easier to hold. From what I can tell, they have discontinued selling both pocket trumpets.
This could be decent low-cost choice for somebody who wants an occasional player or travel horn for practicing. I did a few adjustments to the valves and springs on this one before I was satisfied.
