I've just noticed that there are some trumpets people have biased opinions about, or that everytime they are mentioned someone has to start shouting in protest. I've seen this most with bachs and olds ambassadors, although there are certainly others. No matter what your opinion on the horns, they are widely used and talked about for a reason. maybe you didn't have the best experience with the particular horn but that doesn't give you permission to jump up screaming protest every time they are mentioned. There are always exceptions to horns, both good and bad-I have a friend who has an early bundy that out plays most of my instruments! I'm tired of reading comments that say "strads are the worst horn you can buy!" Or something similar. For a lot of younger people who need a nice all round horn, they're great, even the new ones. (edit- this is just to make a point that they're not bad, and would be okay for students getting their first pro horn, or something similar. I'm not saying that I think the new bach are really good, but they're not terrible either.)I'm sorry about the rant but this is just something that really gets on my nerves.
