I've had my king trumpet for the past 7 years.. 3 of which I haven't played and this current one of which is my come back year which is also my my senior year in highschool. I am currently a month and a half back into playing again. I have managed to make it into my schools band, and also the advanced jazz band. The highest note I can reach is the first C above the staff ( would this be considered a high c? ). I have primarily used the king 601 trumpet. but sometimes I use a trumpet that the brass band director lets me use. I believe it's a besson with a .472 bore. ( he's had it for 30 + years. ). I primarily use a 3c mouthpiece but for the past week iv'e been playing on a warburton ny series 80 mouthpiece with a 4s, 4m, and a 4d(Just a little experimenting with one of the brass band directors mouthpieces ) . With the besson I usually spend time playing on it after school for an hour or so with a 3c mouthpiece.

what kind of horn should I be looking for to buy?
How should I go about buying one?
Should I look online?
Should I look only in stores?
Should I look at both online and stores?
Should I look into large bored trumpets?
If you have any questions I will try to reply asap.
