My daughter has recently passed her Grade 5 trumpet exam.I bought an Arnolds and Sons TR-5200S, when I upgraded her last trumpet, a couple of years ago and was told this was a good intermediate trumpet. However, her teacher has now said the valves are too slow!

I don't want to pay a fortune for a trumpet which potentially she could leave on a train on her way into school, however don't want to hold her back. Should I try and upgrade her trumpet again, and which trumpet would you advise?

It could be that the instrument just needs a service - a good clean of the valves & casing can make quite a difference.
