Bach 37 or Jaeger Silver or something else?    19:35 on Friday, December 23, 2011 Vote for this post Vote against this post 0 votes

Good Evening Friends; I am a returning player in my 50's after dropping the horn in Middle School. I have been at it for 2 years now, started with a Jupiter 606MRL.
It may be getting time to upgrade. Teacher suggests Bach; but for the same money as an Ebay used Bach, could get a new Jaeger Brass horn or maybe something else. At my level who knows if it even matters, but I played a Bach and could tell the difference in the way the valves worked and the air moved.

Would be interested in any feedback.

Thanks

hello, have you ever played a bach or a Jaeger?

Ive never heard of Jaeger..... but played a few Bach Strads and diddnt like them, which I was suprised at after playing a Bach Omega for several years

each trumpet is differnt, some you will like and others you wont... you need to go and try some out!

the jaegers are probably cheeper because there not as good.... if you like your jupiter try there intermediate or pro horns


good luck

Don't waste time with a Bach horn. Same goes for Yamaha. If you're going to buy a new horn, you may as well go with buying a Pro horn, and you may as well buy it new. Like the guy before me said, the cheaper it is, the worse it is. Keep in mind, though, that that rule does not apply if you are buying on craigslist, or eBay for that matter. On websites like those, it is whatever the person wants to charge for it. Whatever you do, DO NOT BUY A BACH! modern bach horns have HIGHLY IRREGULAR quality control, so while one horn may be a great horn, there is another twelve that are worthless crap. It takes far too long digging through piles of Bachs to find 'The One'. Yamaha is the same way, to a lesser extent...

out of interest Nick, what do you play?

Yamaha are one of the top manufacturers for musical instruments in the world and quality control is 2nd to none! and if bachs are so bad why do so many people spend there good hard money on them?

because they like them!

now you may not like bachs, personally I have a played a few and diddnt get on with them but it doesnt mean that he wont like it....


@OP you need to try them out, if you dont like it then dont buy it, but you cant tell until you have played it!

simple as that!
