    Benge 2x+ mlp is the brightest I've ever played. I use it for all my lead scream commercial stuff. If I back off, I can even get a good jazz sound. But I use a blessing 1580G for my small group jazz. It's a big blow. Like a bsch 43/72 combo. A beautiful dark sound rich in overtones.

    Yamaha 8310z, at least my instructor said it is very easy to get up high (I'm not there yet). Lol

    It also needs to be cleaned internally on a regular basis ...

    Certainly; but I do suspect that the OP had something different in mind.

    I've heard you play Gary. It's the player not equipment. :cool:

    How about the Morrison Digital Trumpet?
    Morrison Digital Trumpet

    From this page it says:
    "The MDT gives you 10 octaves of pitch perfect range."

    Is that enough for you?

    My Getzen eterna Severinsen model is great for high notes.
    And my Martin is good too with the right mouthpiece

    My response comes without reading the responses so if it's duplicated .... . You can play high notes on any trumpet you are willing to put the time into practice. Snarky comment aside, there are lightweight horns that can be coupled with "LEAD" type mouthpieces to help you get to the Salsa sound you want. I do know players that play Salsa on a Bach 37!!! So back to the snarky comment. Develop your sound and get it where you want it then go look for a horn. I was talking to a young kid the other day who can play his butt off. I noticed he was playing a Benge. I mentioned it and he was like "Oh yeah, it is ". Someone had given it to him. Can he play his butt off because of the Benge or is he just a good player and has put in the practice?

    The Tower of Power trumper guys both use Bobby Shew Lead mpcs (some folks call them cheater mpcs, but if the pros use them, are they really cheating?). They play high and loud and long. One uses the yamaha 8310Z "Bobby Shew model" with it
