    I guess I should have been more specific. I'm talking about entry-level, student trumpets. Seems like all the big names outsource the production of their beginner models to China or India.

    I believe Getzen still makes all of their instruments in the US, at the very least all of their valve sets are

    Kanstul does, Getzen does , both are very well made.

    If your looking for a horn might try the craigslist in your area , you can at least see them and play.
