I know this has probably been asked a thousand times. Just curious if there is a real difference between a classical trumpet and a so-called 'jazz' trumpet. Is there a such thing as a Best Trumpet that is more suited for different types of music? Curious to get your opinions on this. For years I've been told that my Bach Strad is geared more for symphonic playing. Any truth to this? I played the same things on my Benge C.G model as I do on my Bach Strad. If anything, I felt the Benge had a little brighter sound - the Bach a little darker. Is this consistent with other's experience?
