    hey manny, im 23 and decided to take trumpet lessons because ive really gotten into the likes of cecil taylor, albert ayler, and don cherry and im tired of playing the guitar. i have a few questions.

    What trumpet should i buy?(im looking at a blessing ml-1)

    What mouth piece should i get?

    Is there anything else i need to know before i start this journey?

    Thanks

    Get a trumpet you can afford.

    Get a mouthpiece that produces a nice, clear sound when you blow into it properly.

    Figure out why you got tired of the guitar before you decide to pick up the trumpet.

    That is great advice. I have never heard anyone say that before, but it sure does make sense.
