    I'm glad that you got the money but, (there is always a but) I think they got you for the 50.00

    I'm glad it worked out. I agree that $70 is better than $300.

    Schiller Trumpet

    I use the Schiller Centertone Trumpet and think its an excellent
    instrument My friend is in the Air Force Band that Plays for President Obama
    also uses the Schiller Trumpet. My Experience has been nothing
    but favorable-Quality is excellent and I did buy directly through
    Jim Laabs Music who is the Distributor. They also make a Centertone
    Flugelhorn that I am looking at buying when I have more money Saved:-).

    Re: Schiller Trumpet

    Patrick is a new user with two posts so far. The first is how his Schiler trumpet is better than a Bach. The other is that his friend in "the Air Force Band that Plays for President Obama" uses a Schiler. Neither statement is believable. I think these posts are an attempt at damage-control by Schiler.

    TMD,
    it really doesn't matter. Smart players play before they pay and alert TMers will google Schiller and figure out what the rap is.

    If Patrick is into Schiller, let's wait a year and check out the condition of his valves. Every cheap Chinese trumpet I have experienced fails after a year or so. The monel plating on the valves just wears off leaving the brass to make the valves sticky.

    The wishful thinking of a $300 trumpet being better than a $2000 pro horn deserves to stay uncommented. We have some Air Force members here. Maybe someone would like to comment?

    Thank you so much, gerardo1000!
    I was very interested on a Schiller Pro Cornet (though finding strange it's low price). It was so beautiful... and the company was a German one...
    Thanks to your post I am woken from that sweet silly dream.
    By the way, my first attempt to buy a low-cost trumpet lead me to a Indian company named Empire Brass. The "instrument" cost US$49,99!! Do I need to tell you more?

    :-(If that happened to me i would be mad. It is suspicious though German trumpets for $50.????I would do lots of research before actually buying it.
