    I received an email from a parent of one of my students telling me that her son wants to get a new trumpet. He has been saving up for one and I agree that he should get another trumpet.

    This is the trumpet that he wants:

    I don't know anything about this model, other than reading the add.

    Any ideas?

    I personally can think of many better horns for less money than this one. The Getzen 700 series and Sonare 600 series come to mind. Both are less money and better instruments IMO.

    Might not be the best choice for an "all around" horn. I know a couple of people who have also stated that they tend to be on the bright side of the spectrum...
