Wanting to buy a 2nd trumpet, for... actually several reasons, and wanting something of about the same quality as my current horn, a B&S Challenger II with a 37 bell. I found a nice deal on a Bach Strad 43 lightweight, and was curious about a few things.
- What sound difference should I expect between the two?
- I would primarily use the 2nd horn for practicing jazz, and have read that the 43 lends itself more readily to jazz. Valid, or placebo bullsh?
- I've also read that LW horns feel easier to play, and my B&S is pretty heavy for a standard horn. Anything to that?
- Pros & Cons of a LW?
- Is this horn a good deal because nobody wants a 43?
I should probably just go play the thing and draw my own conclusions, but I'm really trying to avoid a drive to Dallas.
