Howdy, Bit of a back story. I played trumpet for about 10 years during school. I hated school and had zero motivation to do any extra curricular activities so by the time I hit my senior years, I was pretty much never practising at home (and it showed) and ended up giving it away shortly after high school.
10 or so years later and I've decided it's about time for me to pick it up again.
Back in high school the last horn I owned was a Bach TR300, however I think I'd like to go for a bit of an upgrade.
The trouble is I've been out for so long and really don't have anywhere to ask for advice (other than shops). I've done a bit of research and reading and think I've narrowed it down to one of these three.
Either a B&S Challenger 3137 or Challenger 3137 2 or Schagerl JM1.
What I was after was general opinions/experiences on each model, what is the difference between the two Challengers, and are there any other models I should look at around that range? I haven't tried the Challengers yet, but I had a bit of a blow on the Schagel at a local store over the weekend, for a guy that hasn't played in 10+ years I wasn't too shabby!
Thanks in advance for the advice! Looking forward to learning from this forum and re-embarking on my musical journey once more.
