Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.
By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard, it's hard!

I agree. Let Cody have some fun and learn something about trumpet construction in the process.
I puchased a Getzen Eterna Severinsen 900H in silver plate with original case in 1972, played it extensively for 30 odd years. Always a talking point at gigs, sound was reasonable, valves fantastic, resonance and feedback while playing was more than average due to the long brace supporting the bell. Eventually sold it for 375 Pounds on Ebay when I bought my Strad, due to the improvement in playability and tonal colour, which I then sold after getting the Schilke.
Its certainly a novelty - have fun.
