    Iam going to take lessons once a week starting in two weeks but dont have a trumpet yet, I have never played but am excited to learn. I want to learn how to play all kinds of music but mostly latin music. I dont know what kind of trumpet to buy, should I go used or new?? I want to spend $100-$200 on it, what is a good starter? any suggestions will be very much appriciated.

    Ask your teacher first.
    As a beginner, the type of horn (if it is of reasonable quality and in decent condition) and music direction is not critical before the basic skills are learned. $100-200 means a used instrument. Have your teacher play it before laying the cash down. A miserable instrument will not increase your enjoyment!
