You guys are awesome! Thanks so much for helping a newbie like myself out!
You got a great deal. I have the Bach CR 300, the cornet version.Great sound. I use dishwasher detergent on a brush and then warm water to clean the valve case. Rinse off with isopropyl alcohol. Also use alcohol on pistons, and on brush on inside of cornet. Did buy the cleaning kit from the music store, included spitballs. Usually clean once a week.
Great trumpet to start on, he is lucky.

"If it was just up to me, I'd have nothing but trumpet players on my show." - Jackie Gleason
I can't remember the last time I took a stand to a gig (probably Latin band in the late 1990s) - most of the time stands are provided at church gigs, the big band used fronts, and with the wedding band, my book is so big, it's no longer in paper format - it's on an iPad that clips into a holder that attaches to my vocal mic stand.
Now that we've dispensed with the technicalities, let's get back to the original gist of the points I was trying to make: value and usability. A Manhasset will do everything a folding stand will do, plus some, it will take much more use and abuse, and it will last much longer with minimal care. And, it actually has some resale value if the kid doesn't wind up using it past their school years. A folding stand after a few years is fit for little more than the metal recycling pile.
If there's a mandate that the kid get a folding stand, fine - why not have both? A kid learning a new instrument already has enough stuff on their mind without having to worry about fiddling with a stand too.
"What we do in life echoes in eternity"

Somehow I have struggled through life with a plain old Hamilton folding stand. Outdoors, indoors, wind, hot sun, cloudy.......no wonder I have to go to therapy....not really. Just kidding.

Once you have the Stands sorted, you then have to think about Mutes and Mute holders....
Over to you guys to fight it out..
Bublet, to each their own. But I agree with Ed a stand of some sort, so that the player is not slouched over, or reading his music off the floor, bent over the bed... Hey, that's what I did for 3 years - no one ever mentioned getting a stand - my teacher and bands had them.
Now my Mute holder is the Ace..
Why do I like a bell that Points UP ?
- because the spit does not run back into my mouth!
I was just looking at mutes on eBay lol- he came home practicing last night and my god it's loud! Ok so question on them- do they all do the same thing? Does it make it the same to play?im guessing the high end ones work a lot better but we live on acerage not an apartment so even if it's not super quiet that's ok :) more for my sanity than the neighbourhoods
