Misty.sj, if I can make a comeback after a 40+ year lapse and persistently continue through all my aging, health and dental issues ... I know of nothing that prevents your comeback accomplishment. However, despite all the glory marketing hype, clean and lubricate your just recently acquired pre-owned trumpet. You're getting an Olds Ambassador? While mine aren't as fancily refurbished as Gmonady's, they both play well and are primary trumpets I use to demonstrate with in my tutoring sessions.
