Hello My son is begging me for a new trumpet. He wants a BACH silver intermediate trumpet. I'm a single mom and disabled too so I can't afford what I would like to get him. I've looked on Ebay and found several new Prelude's that are pretty cheap, and they are student trumpets. What about the Bach Mercedes and Omega? Are these student trumpets? On the Bach website it only lists 3 trumpets as student trumpets, (the TR 500, TR 600 and TR 300H2)... ...and lists only 2 intermediate trumpets (The TR 200 and TR 200S). But it doesn't say anything about the trumpets with names like Mercedes and Omega. I just figure he would be happier with a NEW student trumpet than a used intermediate. Any help would be appreciated. Blessings to all.
