I am at bust what you would call an amateur trumpet player. My main instrument is actually the piano. However I have started playing trumpet in my church brass choir. Everybody else in the choir has professional level Stradivarius trumpets, except me. I used to have a TR300 that was pretty good. I liked it, until the tragic day when it fell off a set of bleachers at a football game where I was playing in the pep band. It was never the same since so I bought this student model trumpet, the MOS-MVSTR. I really like it. It plays well. But I keep wondering, would it be worth buying a high end Stradivarius model? Specifically, what does a Strad do that makes it better than my old TR300, and my current MOS-MVSTR? For that matter, what are the differences between the different models in the Stradivarius line? It should be noted, i have never had a chance to play a high end trumpet before, so I have no point of comparison.

there are hundreds of pro horns out there, not just the strad! and then there are hundreds of variations on them!

just because everyone plays a strad doesnt meen they are the best, nor will you like it, everyones different

the main difference I found over my old intermediate Bach Omega and my new Selmer Concept TT- which is a pro horn is apart from the build quality is the sound quality!

with my omega when I played lead I would overblow very easily with my TT that wont happen, ever because of the larger leadpipe

now the best thing Ive found with my TT is the range of colours I can create, I can blend into an orchestra, brass quartet wind band, but also blast out on lead, can go from mellow to bright in a second, I love it!

on my hunt for my TT I tried around 15 different trumpets ranging from 500 to 3000

if you want a pro horn you need to go and play some and see, hear and feel the difference!

go down and try them out and pick which one you like the best
