    I've never thought about it that way and I think you are right. This made choosing the right trumpet so much easier. Thank you. :-)

    One thing that would be really fun, is some sort soundclips of a different trumpets played by the same player, the same part of the song and with the same recording equipment and place.

    Testing by Manny Laureano of several different Monette C trumpets.

    Also, would be cool for someone to do something similar with student, intermediate, and pro horns too. A drawback is I can't make them sound as good as someone who is truly accomplished makes them sound.

    Leo, since your so genuinely excited right now to learn everything trumpet, here's a great little essay on trumpets by Jens Lindemann [​IMG] He calls it his "Trumpet Rant" Forum: trumpetherald.com Jen's homepage can be found here: JENS LINDEMANN'S WEB QUARTERS

    I think you'll find it worth reading, but it does not contain any super message for you per se. Just a great little bit of opining.

    In it he mentions Phil Smith [​IMG]

    And here MySpace.com - Philip Smith - New York City, New Jersey - Classical - www.myspace.com/phillipsmithnypo you can listen to Phil play 4 pieces. His playing of "Maid of the Mist" knocks my socks off.

    Enjoy.

    Hey Tennis, Lansing is my hometown and have lots of family there, even though moved to Kalamazoo many years ago. I think Marshall Music carried Yamaha's, but maybe I am wrong. They have always done alot of school instrument business. I believe Yamaha moved their instrument manufacture out of GR, back to Japan recently. OldLou is very knowlegeable and has a great collection. You'll like the Bachs I am sure. I had a Strad 37 for 22 yrs.

    Wonderfull. thank you Richard!

    Btw I went to the shop today and tried different trumpets for about 4 hours (including a well earned lunchbreak). Just for fun I compared one of the more expensive once against a cheaper trumpet, and the most obvious difference for the untrained eye AND lip (my god they hurt now) was that the expensive trumpet were heavier and easier to play. The valves were "soggier" (I have no idea if soggier is a word but it sounds good and explains the feeling I got when pressing the valves :p ) on the cheap trumpet. The trumpet expert in the shop played them both too and it was then I heard that price does matter but the difference wasn't that amazingly huge that I felt that I should buy and expensive trumpet........today.

    Anyway, I decided to buy a B&S 3137. The sound and feeling of it were the best in that price range. And most importantly it felt like an instrument that I would be able to "grow" with
    for a long time.
    I really think that I have made the right choice but please tell me if there are any "hidden" downsides with this model.

    I've heard great things about the B & S trumpets. When you have time, take some photos and post them. I bet you got a great horn!!
