Yeah I took some lessons in clarinet a few years ago and my teacher loved my tone, I was thinking of learning clarinet then sax .... but at a very deep level I like the trumpet, it's suited to me, even though I guess it's more work. I didn't know the sax is difficult to play quietly. I can play my trumpet quietly enough to play along with YouTube videos and the only speakers I have are the tiny ones on my laptop. I think a lot of instruments are great, it's just that the trumpet/cornet, I feel, is right for me. Aside from this, I live in conditions that are rather like being a soldier in the field and another reason to like the trumpet is its simplicity and durability.
