My name is Anthony and I am from Long Island. This is my first post on here. I played trumpet from 4th grade through college. It has been 11 years since I played regularly. I sold my Yamaha TR6335 Mike Vax in 08. I believe that was one of the larger mistakes I made in my life thus far. I am looking to get back into playing again. I have about a 1000.00 to spend on a horn. I am looking into used, as I am sure I can get more bang for my buck that way. Since I have been out of it for a while, can anyone make any recommendations on a versatile pro horn? I typically play a mixture of Jazz and Classical. Primarily classical in a brass quintet setting.
On a side note, does anyone here know of Howard Birnbaum? He was my private teacher for years. I have lost touch with him for years and would like to get back in touch with him. Thanks in advance for any replies and all of your help.
