    It was probably a veggie burger. Cows are sneaky that way...

    I don't care much for veal. It's like: "Oh, you're a boy, we're going to eat you!

    back on topic -- MISTY
    Freddie Hubbard 5tet - Misty [1985] - YouTube

    of course, that is nice if you want a Getzen --- I would encourage you to look into a KING Silver Flair -- pre 1980 (1055T) model -- it is a sweet playing horn, and they can be found on Ebay for a song and a dance -- but that is my opinion -- many will disagree --- but Misty, if you can sing and dance, you can find a KING trumpet!!

    I love the way Freddie used double breasted suits when he played as well... very cool.. so yes... Go with the Getzen and men that wear double breasted suits. I've got a cool one in Navy Blue...

    Misty,

    if you get to Sydney in the near future (before you buy a horn) I'd be happy for you to give my Getzens a blow - I might even allow you to experience the trumpet that is Harriett (my Bravura) ;-)

    I wish I could say "I knew Freddie. He was a friend of mine. Doctor, you're no Freddie Hubbard," but I can't honestly say that. You do, however, do him justice in your playing. It's only the suit business that doesn't wash. Go for the Getzen and Moderators. We have wings.

    Thanks for all of these ... comments. :) I had some Amazon credit so I got the mutes I needed there, as well as some cute Protec mute socks for almost as cheap as I could make them. I needed a carry bag for my music stand too so that's all taken care of.

    I'm not in a rush for another trumpet but when I do, I want a new one. It's only because I've never had a brand new horn. Even my French horn was pre-owned (by a friend though).

    I was surprised at band that nobody had a silver trumpet or horn. Are they not trendy anymore? Low brass was an even mix of silver and lacquer.

    Ted, thanks for the offer. I may take you up on it! By the way, I found out we have a local shop called Brisbane Wind and Brass (their website is ozwinds.com.au though) and they seem like they may actually be decent. I will have to check it out. So far there are lots of guitar shops and some that have student instruments only, but I didn't know we had a real band shop.
