Thank you for your comments, and you may be right! I sometimes wonder if I have at least one too many, but I suppose it has a little to do with what my intentions are. I am a comeback hobbyist. I spent nearly forty years away from the trumpet and am thoroughly enjoying my comeback experience. I do not play for money - at least not yet. My three Bb trumpets, two Bb cornets, and one flugelhorn provide me variety and much musical satisfaction. I also seem to be developing a versatile embouchure. It kind of boils down to different strokes for different folks.
You are right in noting that my three Bb trumpets seem like decent instruments; they really are in my opinion and I count myself fortunate to have them. I suspect I could be a contented musician with any one of them, but I do not have to own just one, and I am thankful for that fact.
