Hi, my daughter will be in band next year (7th grade). She has taken trumpet for 2 years in elementary school. She rented a Conn last year and did not like it very much. I was looking to purchase a trumpet for her. I was looking for a good quality instrument but also trying to keep it under $1000. Any recommendations? Our music store recommended a Holton for $425. I don't know the model. It is probably the student model T602PC. She will march with the trumpet also. Thank you for your input and this forum.
