Buy your son a good, used trumpet. A very good new student model van cost $600-$700. There is this shop in Cincinnati which specializes in refurbishing student trumpets. It is called Crone Trumpet Repair and Sales. The owner has done work for me. He is knowledgable and honest.

skatrumpet guy has no clue what he`s talking about and obviously isn`t a real trumpet player. a green yamaha trumpet is the same as a silver yamaha trumpet when it comes down to sound and playability... there aren`t many oppurtunities to play ska anyways... and what real punk band uses horns... if you think you like punk go listen to the ramones, sex pistols, dead kennedy`s, the misfits... that`s real punk unlike blink 182. and a used trumpet will last depending on the condition it was is when you bought it and how much you take cae of it... just like any trumpet. if you want a yamaha trumpet and don`t want to spend too much money i would say go with the yamaha ytr-2445 or something like that is the model number. or a 6310z can come cheap. however i would reccomend trying out trumpets before you buy them... the real ones to consider are bach strads (either model 43, 37, or 72 or a limited edition), GETZEN (severinsen model or 700s) , yamaha, stomvi (either forte or elite or mambo titanium for dealing out the bucks) i think that`s it... don`t let anyone persuade you into getting a blessing or a jupiter... good day!

Folks, this kid just started playing the horn. Don`t lose sight of that. Blessing and Jupiter make solid student horns. And, there is nothing wrong with a used trumpet that is well made from the start and cared for by previous owners. Start economical, if the child keeps with it, invest in a high quality, professional level horn.

i was just thinking that if you can buy a used pro horn it would be better to play than a new beginner horn... that`s why i suggested the getzen severinsen model (not the gold plated hand engraved 4000$ one... the regular silver one with a first valve trigger). i`ve had good experiences with students starting on that horn.

my student horn only lasted me two years before i needed a pro horn. i had a conn beginner horn and two years later i needed something better so i tried out lots of horns and got a getzen 700s eterna II
