    hi everyone. i'm just starting to get in to jazz trumpet. I trained in london in classical/orchestral trumpet. i have recently seen some Berkeley winds trumpets for sale, particularly the heavy duty 'classic' model. they seem to be a bit too good to be true? has anyone any exprience of playing them? good horn to start my cross over to the dark side on?

    thanks for your help in advance

    Hi Paul. You're correct. They are too good to be true. I'd look elsewhere.

    They don't really have a great reputation.

    They fall in the "you get what you pay for" category...
