The Superstar is a good horn. Now all you have to do is practice. Good Luck.
IMO, and I'll assume those who pursue attainment are highly skilled, the chances of such success would be as if you walked into a completely blackened 50' x 50' room and within 15 minutes could locate the single black silk thread as hung from the ceiling to the floor.
Let me say that a marksman cannot hit a 12" silk handkerchief hanging from a line with a 357 magnum. Why is a factor that makes finding that thread most difficult. A few may, but hundreds may never.
I was about 10 or so.
Started on a Conn8b.
Had to quit for a few years do to a right hand injury that left me with nerve damage in my wrist and third finger.
After rehab I tried a comeback but couldnt play up to my standards so I moved on with life since I couldn't play on a professional level anymore.
Im in my 50s now and decided to come back to something I love even though I cant perform like I want.
I started playing the trumpet when I was 11 years old in 2001. I started on a Yamaha YTR2320 and Vincent Bach 7c mouthpiece. I still have them and plan on finding better equipment in the future.
I started in 4th or 5th grade. I was 9-10. First trumpet was some old old one my dad use to play. I not really sure what kind it was, might just have to ask Dad about it. Didn't even have a case. I soon was given an Olds Special. I played till my 10th grade year (I was 15). Looking back I wish I wouldn't have quit the band as I really sucked at football, and I was much better trumpeter. Now at it again (43) trying to get my chops back on my old Olds Special.
5th grade on a Conn B20. Still have it, still play it... The only horn I have that I don't mind tossing to someone while playing in a parking lot.
Piano at age 5, trumpet at 10, trombone at 15. First trumpet was a used "EMO Champion" bought by my parents on the advice of a salesman ... that trumpet is still going strong ... which tells a lot as I am now 53!
I was 9 and in 4th grade in the autumn of 1972. At a school assembly, students were asked to to identify whether a piano note was "high' or 'low' and mark it down on paper. I selected 'trumpet' as my choice of instrument. I passed the test and a few days later, Mom brought home a shiny Bundy trumpet. I played it up to 11th grade. It's tarnished and dented now, but still plays ok. Saving up to buy new and better one. I'm now 47 and a recent come-back player
Started Trumpet 7 months ago at age 46. (Played sax professionally 25 years earlier). First and only trumpet is an Etude, $99 special, I believe no longer made, therefore should be worth a fortune someday .
One of the things I love about trumpet is that even my bottom of the line horn sounds pretty good. Bottom of the line saxes are just flatout bad from the start...and never cost $99.
Started at age 11 - my dad used to play a combination of Louis Armstrong and Herb Alpert records around the house in the early 70's and it got me interested. Then I heard Basie and it was all over. Played on an Olds Ambassador - wish I still had it!
