    A Shepards Crook cornet would be an excellent choice. I like my Conn 17 A coprion (copper bell) has an excellent sound. I had both Olds Ambassador and Holton 602 trumpet. Liked the Holton better.

    Steve yes I feel a Cornet would be better for me. I will keep searching and go to those 2 Ottawa stores next week to get information from them

    Thanks for everything it means a lot to me.

    This may sound a little crazy, but considering the weight of any horn and the physical issues you mentioned, What about a plastic trumpet? I have played a Tiger and was pleasantly surprised. Tromba makes one and there is a pTrumpet. All are in your budget and the Tromba can be bought on Amazon. Virtually weightless by comparison and the perfect starter horn. Can't dent it


    Here's a link!

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0..._m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=12MQT42D19NWMKG6MQDW

    You can also get it in silver or red. Tromba even makes a cornet!

    This might be a very good option for you, in fact, the Canadian distributor is a member (chapmand) here on TM. Here is a link to his Kijiji ad.

    Here is his TM post playing the Tromba. I'm sure he could help you if you decide this is something you would like.

    Tobylou8 Heavy I can't handle. Lack of strength do to a disease that attacks my peripheral nerves. The less it weights the better.

    Tobylou8 I missed part of your post. I saw Ptrumpet. I love the fact it looks to nort weight much. Since I am only learning and practicing with it should be something I should consider. Then further down the road I can buy a better one if I feel the need to. Thanks for the info. :)

    Here's the link above. The Tromba is getting good reviews and it's under $200. It also uses any synthetic oil. Some of the other plastic horns require specific oil.

    The link doesn't work. So the Tromba is sold on Amazon? Will definitely look for it. Thanks
