    Yes if you don't have Arbans and you're lacking areas in experience, Arbans is a great thing to get.

    Nice try!

    On the other hand, I really should get the Arban trumpet book. Is there a book that has EVERY song in one? If so, where could I get one?
    Thanks!

    If you want something that will contribute to the LONG LIFE of your trumpet, buy one of those valve protectors (that wraps around the valve casings). If you look at my list of trumpets (that is about half of what I have), you can see that most are rather old. Nearly all of them suffer from bad lacquer around the valves and some are so bad that the brass actually has grooves in it. The valve protectors keep the valves looking nice. They come in leather, vinyl, cloth and even molded plastic which I like the best because they are transparent and let the shine of the brass through and also they are the thinnest so they do not make the valves too wide for small hands (I don't know if you have small hands but this is for some who may have that issue).

    The Platinum edition Arban's can be had for $39, including a CD with accompaniment. You'd almost have enough left over for the Clarke studies.

    For $50 one could go on a mini mouthpiece safari rummaging through a music store's shoebox full of used mouthpieces. You might even hit the jackpot and find a Mt. Vernon 7C that some unknowing woodwinds-only technician threw in there! Bring your own spray thingy of Mi-T-Mist just to be safe.

    Since you do not have an Arbans, then that should be FIRST Choice.
    The H&B mutes next...

    Both should last a life-time.
    Cheers

    Wow, thank you all for great suggestions! I am most likely going to buy the book, pretty much the best one I can buy. EXPECIALLY with a CD to help!:D
    Then I will look into getting that cool mute.
    Thanks again everyone!!!
