I have a question (maybe a dumb one) but I recently bought a mid 60’s Blessing Artist trumpet. While I was getting it set up and cleaned I got out my old 70’s King Cleveland 600 beater trumpet from middle school that I hadn’t played in 25 years or more. To my amazement I have found that the King Cleveland sounds much better (to my ear) and plays much better than the 60’s Blessing Artist model. Is this just a function of my perception or does have something to do with the KC being a smaller bore horn thus it is easier to play? Thanks in advance.
