Thread: Trumpet brand suggestions

    Default Trumpet brand suggestions

    I'm hoping my fellow TWCers can help me out here. I'm a trumpet player in search of a new trumpet. The one I currently have (Bach TR300) is the one I've had since middle school. Even though it sounds alright, it's got plenty of dings and the lacquer is fading away. Since it's an intermediate trumpet, I'm looking for one that's more professional but I just don't know what to look for. Since I've been in and out of the music world over the years, I've lost contact with a bunch of my music friends. That's why I'm asking you.

    With that said, I would like a reasonably priced professional grade trumpet that is flexible with blending in with jazz, rock, blues, and pop. Any suggestions?

    A majority of trumpet players play on a Bach Stradivarius. They are great for general use. Yamaha also makes good ones.

    The BACH TR300 is their student line, not intermediate. The Bach Strad is the "old faithful" of classical playing, and will give you a rich, dark sound. What sound are you looking for? I know you want to blend in with jazz, rock, blues, and pop... but that's too broad of a description for me to help you.

    Also, what mouthpiece do you currently use? 7C, 3C, Jet Tone, other?

    I don't check this forum regularly, so feel free to email me at pianomandan at gmail dot com.
