    Re: Light weight trumpet

    my Burbank Benge 5 is the lightest horn I have ever played, the bell is so thin that if you rub your finger on one side of the bell you can actually see the metal slightly deform on the other side of the bell. I actually removed some mute dings with my finger.

    I have the Benge 7X as well - it's very light, which is what I was looking for when I purchased it back in the early 80s.
    I tried Schilkes and Yamahas, but couldn't afford them.

    Then along came the Benge, and I haven't looked back.

    It's a bear to play - and I have a bit of trouble here and there with intonation, and the slotting isn't as clean as it used to be. But I still love it.
