I am currently in the market for a new trumpet. i am currently a Freshman in high school and i play a King 600. I don't mean to brag but i am in all of the "extra" stuff. ex. 1st division at solo and ensemble (6), solos at concerts, and so on. My trumpet is my life and i love to play. (not saying i have no life haha) but, i just love to play and i really take care of my horn. i have tried a Getzen 700 sp, Getzen 700 special, Bach Strad Omega, King silver Flair, and a Bach Strad from 1962 which was quite a treat. i am looking to try a yamaha YTR-9355CHS which is a xeno artist model from their "chicago" series which has a silver plate finish, is a heavyweight trumpet. along with Yamaha Xeno series YTR-8335RGS this one is a heavyweight as well, also it is silver-plated, has a reverse tuning slide, and it has a gold brass bell. Another couple that i wanted to try were by getzen. it is the Getzen 3001 artist Model. and i really am looking forward to the 3001MV artist model mike vax. that is the one i really want to play. at least try because every trumpet plays different. please let me know what you think!! thank you!!
