Lately Iâ€™ve been thinking of getting a less expensive entry-level C trumpet. I know a lot of people would think that a high school student like me has no reason for a C trumpet, and for the most part, right now, that is probably the case. But Iâ€™m thinking more for the future than anything, Iâ€™ll be going off to college next year and Iâ€™m planning to major in Music Education, and maybe try for a second major in Music Performance on the trumpet. So within the next few years I will have a legitimate reason for looking into a C trumpet. Also, last year in the lower orchestra at my school we played George Bizetâ€™s Lâ€™Arsenie (sorry about the spelling, Iâ€™m pretty sure I messed up the title). The second movement was written in the key of A, and the third movement was in C, so a C trumpet would have made transposition a lot easier. Now this year Iâ€™ll be in the top orchestra and Iâ€™m assuming weâ€™ll be playing a lot more music like this, and a C trumpet might come in handy. Do you think it is still to early in my trumpet career to be thinking about a C trumpet, or do I have enough need for it that it is a legit purchase? What brought this up was â€œTheLawTalkingGuyâ€ who has put his Holton T602CP C Trumpet up for sale on ebay and in the classifieds section here on TM. My parents owe me a couple hundred dollars for something or other so I figure I can get this for a bout $250-$300 out of my own pocked, that doesnâ€™t seem like to bad of a deal, as long as that is a good trumpet, and from the sound of it, I think it is. What is your opinion on this? Should I check deeper into it, or just keep dreaming until I have more need for one? Thanks.
