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.
