okay i play an aristocrat from the seventies. i was wondering how the sound compares to the yamahas that kids are given. i never played one before and was wondering if anyone has any input. second question, my trumpet is dying, i am looking for a strad cause someone snagged my original one before i could purchase it, but in the meanwhile i was considering buying a cheap horn myself. i have three hundred dollars i am willing to spend. what is my best bet, buy a Yamaha or is there something else?
