I have recently purchased a Flugelhorn and I really enjoy playing it. At the same time, I have begun teaching my daughter the basics of playing the trumpet. I rented her a trumpet, to see if she liked it. She seems to get a better tone out of my very old getzen severinsen trumpet. And she does even better with my Kanstul 1525 Flugelhorn. I had promised to get her a new trumpet, if she really liked playing, which she seems to. However, she is now asking about whether I would get her a flugelhorn instead of a trumpet. She says the flugelhorn is easier to play. I was wondering if I should get her a cornet to try, keep her on trumpet or get her the flugelhorn. I'm not sure what to get her for Christmas: trumpet, flugelhorn or cornet. On a related note, I have seen many restored trumpets on ebay. Any recommendations on who is a good restorer. I'm looking at a a possible Yamaha 2335 restored with a rose gold highllights for $500.00 as a possibility for my daughter. Since the color is similar to my flugelhorn. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
