    Can someone direct me to a place that specializes in selling used brass? Is there such a place? I would just like to be able to look around (online), and compare features, models and price of used trumpets. I tried to do a google search, and didn't come up with much of anything?

    Thanks, I had stumbled across New York Trumpet Company (would like that Martin Cornet!), but Dillon Music is new to me!

    Dillon Music is the place. Especially if you can go in person.

    Hi,

    Dillons is a great place...Quality Brass is also another great place. You know that you will get good deals and good service.

    I am sure that there are a lot of other good stores...but these are the 2 that I have had experience with. Steve Dillon and his staff are great...and Fred from Quality Brass is a great guy to do business with.

    Hope this helps.

    By the way...what kind of horn are you looking for?

    Dillons is wonderful, but there is also HornTrader.com. I have found them as well to be very good to deal with and honest.

    I have dealt with the New York Trumpet Company and with Quality Brass and both are excellent to deal with. You might also check out Thompson Music out of the Omaha, Ne area.

    Pawn shop hopping is your best bet unless you live in a huge city with lot's of big music store's.
