    Tomorrow is my birthday :lol:, and It have been 7 years that I'm palying my King Cleveland Superior trumpet (which is in a good shape) and two years before I've played a Weltklang trumpet (rare?). Here is the question: Do you think that is time for a change? If you think that, please make me some recomendations...:-?

    Two things to think about:
    I live in Argentina and is really dificult to get a new one at a very low price or a used one :thumbdown:... and I don't need a profesional one...

    Just save the money. I don't really think it would be worth it unless something is wrong with your current horn. If it is working for you then don't fix what isn't broken! Maybe in several years when you start playing gigs or go to college you could consider using the money that you have saved be not buying a horn now, to by a high quality horn. Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Keep playing! :lol:

    I agree with both of the above--if it ain't broke and what can you get where you are? If you start a safari tell us what is available to you there. It may help further recommendations. Also be sure to read Jim Donaldson's pages called The Trumpet Gearhead. There are some good recommendations in there for upgrading to a pro horn that is used. Some of the advice may not apply given your location. Toby's implicit thought seems to be that some of the European manufacturers may be more available to you than others elsewhere and Donaldson, if I remember, is kind of quiet (dated?) on them.
