The main problem with a Poor Quality Instrument is:
Your child/player will get Frustrated, Lose Interest and will Give Up.
Poor Quality Cheap Materials - result in the an instrument that won’t play, mechanisms won’t work, parts will bend and break, pads rip and tear, corks crack & split. Materials will rust, corrode & tarnish faster, which will cause parts to stick/jam and fail.

If the poor quality instrument keeps falling apart, parts keep breaking and jamming and sounds bad, Your Child/Player will get Frustrated and Give Up.
Poor Quality Cheap Instruments Sound Bad. A new beginner needs an instrument that plays as well In Tune as possible. Intonation of a musical instrument is everything. If you can’t tune your instrument you can’t play your instrument. If you instrument doesn’t tune/pitch correctly your child won’t develop their ears to hear intonation, pitch and sound correctly.If a Poor Quality Cheap Instruments Sound Bad: Your Child/Player will get Frustrated and Give Up.
Feel & Response
Poor Quality Instruments Feel Bad. Poorly made instruments either feel very sloppy in the action of their moving parts, key-work/valves or the moving parts key-work/valves jam. The construction and care in making the parts and connections (screws, pins) mechanism fit is crucial for an instrument to play well and feel great. If a Poor Quality Instrument Feels Bad to play: Your Child/Player will get Frustrated, won’t Practise and will Give Up.

Developed with top artists at the Yamaha Frankfurt AtelierThe FFM in the model number stands for Frankfurt am Main. The YTR-948FFMS was developed at the Yamaha Frankfurt Atelier with input from Markus Bebek, Associate Principal Trumpet of the Opera Frankfurt am Main.
LeadpipeThe taper of the leadpipe on the rotary valve trumpet has the optimum taper for superb intonation and dark powerful tone.
Hand-hammered one-piece bellA one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the insturment's material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered, gold brass bell produces a slightly more broad and rich, yet perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing.
Hand-lapped valves and slidesHand-lapping rotary valves and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the valve and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
Pressure-formed tubingPerfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
ToneSofter and rounder than piston valve trumpets.
