Please help. I want your opinions on what I should do, and more importantly, why. After a lot of saving, I am now able to afford an Eclipse trumpet . Just. I already have a Bach Strad 37, a good one, but not a great one. I play mostly orchestral ensemble stuff, 95% on my Strad, although I do some flugel doubling on borrowed flugels. I love playing flugel, I'm probably a better flugel player than a trumpet player (used to double Eb Soprano and Flugel in brass bands!), but I hardly ever need one. The question is, what Eclipse should I buy? The trumpets, particularly the LY, MY and MR, are head and shoulders above my Strad. The flugel is amazing. I can only get one . I think my options are: 1. Keep the Strad and have Leigh rebuild it (I can actually see stress crazing in the bell, so this should help). Buy an Eclipse flugel. 2. Buy an Eclipse trumpet. Sell the Strad and get a second hand or cheap new flugel (Yamaha 6310Z / B&S Challenger etc.). 3. Buy an Eclipse trumpet. Sell the Strad and put the money away. Keep borrowing flugels whilst I save up for an Eclipse. Anyone have any opinions? Why? I'm kind of leaning towards 3 at the moment, or maybe 2. I kind of think that as the Bb trumpet is 95% of my playing, I really should make that my best instrument. I'm really only a mediocre player, so I've got a huge amount of learning to do on trumpet anyway! Confused and indecisive, England. (Rich).
