    This is a great post and a good example of making time to get the job done. A good recipe for success in any endeavor. The guy that's putting in the time while others are snoozing (or hanging) is always going to pull ahead of the pack. Good job!

    Ha, thanks for all of this. Also, I am thinking about getting a vintage or used horn for my next step up because if I can find a good horn but its only problem is its old and its cheaper than a new horn that is good as or worse than the horn in question why not go for it. Then I can see if I can get it buffed and replated/laqured.

    Hah. My buds all like her. My trumpet teacher plays the same horn, only a few years older, and one of his other students bought one too. The Conn Mafia is taking over!

    A vintage horn can be a bargain, and they're usually not quite so expensive. I only paid $600 for my '62 Conn, and she's a beauty. Search around Dillon Music, they have a really good selection of vintage horns. And I personally wouldn't worry with getting it replated or relacquered. What do looks matter as long as the horn sounds good?
