    Not that I shop instruments that much, but from time to time I will surf through the internet sites to see what is out there. Now I know there is some real junk being made on the back side of the moon, but I wonder, are there any new makers who are building any good quality horns who are not priced like the mainstays?

    Kanstul in Anaheim has a full range of very good trumpets across the entire price range. You could visit them and have a trip to Disneyland - or the beach - all for one plane ticket. Just up the street is Orlando Winds. They also have some very nice models for attractive prices. Here is their site.

    Here is a link to Diamond Jaeger. Ivan is a member here and makes excellent trumpets.

    Cannonballs are not terribly expensive, either.

    YES! YES! YES! Carol Brass is the quality leader and the value leader now.

    Great horns, great quality control, unbelievable value for the money. Bach is so impressed that Carol is building trombones for them!

    As far as pricing goes, you can get a very nice intermediate horn for $750, or select from their pro models starting at $995 and up to $1500. Best bang for the buck! IMHO, you are getting far more than what you are paying for.

    I guess it depends on the price range you're talking about.

    The old rule that "you get what you pay for" still applies...

    Hi, try Best Brass Aiolia. Made in Japan, a bit high in price but a great trumpet.
