    More like a bias bag. Look at their disclaimer:

    Any one wants to bet Yamaha pays the largest commission and likely the higher volume. This analysis has a high risk rating due to the conflict of support bias.

    The Yamaha still is likely the best of those picks. From my perspective that’s the only one I ever heard of. The rest seem like the ones you'd find on eBay for under a hundred bucks, brand new with Mouthpiece and hard case.



  • And then let's do the math: Here is the site's ANALysis summary (Rowuk's spelling):

    d8c2a4cc-a50f-4e13-835d-47916c9b8544-image.png

    So if you JUST interviewed the Consumers for the "7 hours" of research, you get:

    7 hr x 60 min/h = 420 min; 420 min/152 consults = 2.7 min/consult.
    Then there is that 1 expert. OK maybe they gave that person at least a minute... so that leaves 1.7 minutes for the others.

    Conclusion: The ANALysis is as accurate as the time spent in going over the data



  • AND Here is a clip from the sites "How we do it" Page:

    Clearly they are comparing apples to oranges



  • And then look at the Team:

    Daniel's grin says it all: These readers are SO gullible.
    Linsay the Editor: Really Daniel, you think the readers will believe this? Ok I guess if you bribe me with another Hershey's Bar!
    Melinda the Web Producer: Oh yeah, you're all giving me another blonde joke.... OK I'll show you.... I'll publish it

    Then there's Eliza the Production Manager: Hey wait, she's hot!

    Don't forget the white gloves. 😀



  • @Kehaulani

    It really looks like he did a review of all the trumpets available to him at the local music store.

    I respect that he took a shot trying to become a trusted instrument review source but damaging credibility is not a good first step



  • To be blunt, I don't respect squat. It is dishonest. He is a poser, assuming the role of expert which would prey on the uninformed. There is no integrity.

    Reading their site, they are experts in nothing. They review juicers, cars, clothing... They also claim they make their choices based on customer feedback, with less then 2 minute feedback review per customer AT BEST. They did not play these trumpets. Much less than being trumpet players, I doubt they are even musicians. They are a team of biased "researches: that couch their data into the best results for royalties they get from the companies from which they "contract".



  • Setting the record straight, I did not say those things quoted directly under my name.

    Haha, you mean I only thought it? Guess I forgot to type it.



  • So, what they do is sift through Amazon reviews and aggregate the results. So you don't have to read all the "I bought this as a gift for my 5-year old and he LOVES it ! So happy with this purchase" posts.

    I'd prefer they spend their time combing Amazon Q&A for people who reply to product questions with "Sorry, I don't know. Hope this helps", go to their homes and slap them with a fish. That would be a value-add.



  • I just sent them a message stating that their review of trumpets was a joke, and that I sincerely hope no one takes it seriously and makes a purchase decision based on it.

    These should all ( except the web designer ) be beaten to a pulp with a Mendini trumpet...☺ ☺ ☺
