After laying off for 5 years, getting serious again playing. 54 years old, began at age 11. 25 years ago played trumpet semi-professionally hiring out for gigs. Played a borrowed Schilke B2 and absolutely loved it. Been looking to buy a horn I will keep for the rest of my life. That said, I had my heart set on a Schilke, new or used, hoping that I'd fall in love with a horn. Being one to study every detail to the point of absolute paralysis, I am now confused and bewildered as to a horn model. Long story short... Perusing this great forum TrumpetMaster, I seldom see mention of Schilke horns, either recommended or for sale. Am I missing out on a better horn? (Recently sold my used Bach Strad... never have liked those horns for some reason).
