    That doesn't work any better.

    Doesn't matter, and neither do you.

    Grow up.

    think of all the time you could have practiced instead of posting.

    Actually Bach TR500s and Selmer TR700s go for around $200-$300 new several places online. Ebay will have several used Bach and Yamaha intermediates around that price range too and they're way better. You don't have to go with a Chinese brand to save money. And in the end, if you decide the trumpet isn't for you, the respected brands will be able to resell at close to the price you got it if you keep it in good condition.

    That still doesn't change the fact that resale value on Chinese instruments are not very high.

    Hitman,

    How do you start your warm-up? Long tones? Trying to play the high register too soon? Using too much lip pressure? Being numb in 15 minutes means you must not be doing something right.

    If you can't do more than 15 minutes a day, you won't get better. You should do 15 minutes a day several times a day until you can go to 30 minutes and beyond. There are those who are teachers in this forum, so perhaps you should listen to their advice more.

    Best wishes,

    Lloyd
