Hey trumpetkid, you played any of the upper Yamaha horns keyed or Bb? I mean above the Xeno. You oughta give the "Bobby S. Custom" a test drive see if you like the "Step-Bore" and the new Bell.... Sounds to me like you know what you are doing, thought I would share that tid-bit...peace

I've tried Bach's 37 and 47 and they are great horns, cannonball trumpets are'nt that bad either although they feel a bit wierd. I'm partial to king trumpets. Student models play fairly well and are very sturdy. Their professional line horns are pretty good. I have a supersonic and it plays with more color than the bach's do. Every horn plays differently and you just have to find a good one.

Had to post one more time, only because I played tested the best horn I have ever played in my life today. So if you are a serious player (I.E> Symphony) you have to have a Yamaha "Artist Model" 9335CH Bb or 9445CH C Trumpet. I have a Xeno8335RG (with the sweet brushed brass under lacquer), 2 Bach Strads(different bore configs.)a Bach C trumpet, Getzen Flugel (pro) I sold my outrageously large bored Schilke Hand made Bb and my R.Mendez Bb which I played for years and loved. Make a long story short I love all my horns and this new horn just blew them all away. Response, locking in, tone, and feel. Suggested Retail price of around $4600.00 Or $4700.00. All horns are not created equal.!!!!>

You know. Who cares about equipment...as long as sound comes out. Whatever comes out is coming from you. You can have all the best equipment in the world ... but it won't make you any better. You wanna be good...the best horn is practice. I can pick up a beginner horn and play just as well as my pro horn...it'll be a little out of tune and a bit thinner ..but ide be able to perform a solo with it. It's the the horn it's the player. I love trumpet, and i really hope i get out there someday. It's my goal in life..to make music my living, and to bring music to ppls ears and spread knowledge to the ones that want to learn.

Couldn't agree more, TrumpetKid. Oh and by the way, I have a Jupiter 600 and it plays great and looks great. Most ppl think Jupiters suck but there are many good Jupiter instruments. Also, you can find a crappy instrument made by just about any brands. Except for Bach; Bach's rule, especially the Bach Strad ( I'm probably getting one soon {-_^} ).

if your going to get into all this deep-ness about the brand doesn't matter-fair enough. i disagree but i do believe every trumpet has its good points if i could have a trumpet modifyed to contain all the points from the different brands-e.g. brilliant valves from yamaha, excellant laquer from VBach, sweet lead pipe from shilke, etc. wow!

Monette is just wonderful. You can get your own custom horn made..and not many people know about the monette corp. very expensive...check out the website. www.monette.net

Monette horns are used by the famous wynton and maynard ferguson and charlie schlueter...well i could go on forever. But they're expensive i kid you not. $6,000 for the CHEAPEST model and $30,000 for the most expensive model. then you can get a horn custom made and what not.

Bear in mind that the trumpet that's perfect for one person might well be the worst choice for the person in the next chair. There are some "fledgling" brand trumpets making their way into the market that are in fact pretty good horns. With today's predominant mass production methods there seem to also be some established brand name horns that are the music world equivalents of "lemons" in the automobile industry. Some people swear by Bach, others Yamaha, or Getzen, or Conn, Selmer, and the list goes on. My advice regarding purchase of a "new" trumpet is to avoid any with manufacturer suggested retail prices under $300. When new, cheap can look and seemingly play as good as expensive, but won't usually stay that way for long.

I have the Yamaha Bobby Shew 8310Z. It's extremely free blowing, very lightweight. It sings every time you play it and screams out the high register like nobodys business. Be Careful though, it's fragile if you're not careful.

Perfect example of how the horn may fit the player. I test drove the Custom "Z" that spartan has and prior to playing it I thought this horn would be the one for me. It really kicks some serious butt with that bead on the bell and progressively thinning bell. which I absolutely love on the Yamaha C trumpets. The "Step-Bore" and I didn't get along though. Think it was because I played a R. Mendez for so long and those axes have no resistance. The Bobby Shew really felt small to me. Don't get me wrong I think that it is an excellent horn, but not for me. and ohh yeah don't bump that bell on your music stand it will dent if you breath on it the wrong way....... Peace

all the bachs and jupiter trumpets i have heared are shotty. the guy i sit next to in band plays a bach, and the tuninggoes out after like 5 min. i have a Yamaha, the newest james morrison range one and it is a dream to play. i must say, everyone has their own opinion and its cool to hear what others out there think.
