I've been doing some looking recently at trumpets that are geared a bit more toward legit/classical playing, mostly because my gigging has shifted a bit, which has taken me into territory that isn't necessarily ideal for my Jupiter Roger Ingram 1600i. It's a wonderful trumpet for most of the gigging I Dow, but it's not as versatile as d hoped it would be. This brings me to Sonare trumpets. Everything I have seen about them seems very positive: Valve alignment Blackburn Leadpipe cryogenically treated plays and sounds a lot like a good Bach Strad ML/37. Whats not to like, right? So why aren't they more popular?
