Hey folks, Well, my daughter has been playing since Aug. She has really surprised me. She has taken to the trumpet like a duck to water. Practices everyday, and is one of the top in her class. I've been trying to keep up, but she has WAY surpassed me. We went with a rental instrument from a local company, a King 601. Her teacher told us that we might want to consider a step up trumpet for her. I've been looking at several but am undecided. Thinking about a Kanstul. What would you guys recomend? She has her first concert next month, can't wait I'm so excited!
