Hi there...this is my first post & after reading some others on here, this looks like the place I need to be. My son starts 6th grade band in the fall & will be playing the trumpet. My eyes are gone criss cross from looking at sooooo many on ebay! He has a list of preferred ones...Jupiter, Yamaha, Bach, Getzen...and there are lots of nice ones on there, but which would be best for a trumpet newbie? Also, do dents, dings & scratches matter with the sound of the trumpet? Thanks so much for the advice & for this great site!!!
