I thought I'd start up a thread to see if anyone has any thoughts on a few trumpets, chiefly the Schilke S42, the Jupiter XO 1600i Roger Ingram model, or the Yamaha 8310Z. As some of you might know based on my posting, I'm pretty much a Schilke Fanboy, and although I currently play a Schilke B6, I've given thought to maybe looking into something else - there are so many things I love about my B6, but I've never been particularly accurate on it - it has always been a bit squirrely, but I can't fault the sound. Naturally I'm leaning toward the S42 - it keeps me on a Schilke, which I believe are rarely matched and never beaten when it comes to quality control, and fit and finish. I believe it's part of why they are so danged consistent. With that said, I'd also be willing to look into the Z horn, as well as the Roger Ingram Jupiter - after all, he used to be known for playing an S42. Does anyone have any experience with these horns, particularly if they have ever directly compared a B6 to any of the ones listed? I'm going to plan a jaunt out to some local area retailers to do some of my own playing, but it would be nice to get some feedback before going out.
