    Never until you posted. It does not come with white gloves or a tuner, so maybe it is?

    Hi Tanker,

    I know those Levante horns well. They are chinese, sold on Amazon sites.
    I tell you sir but really I recommend you start on an Olds Ambassador or a Holton Collegiate rather than these Levante horns.
    I know its new, its tempting but seriously you are going to regret after 6 months.
    Scratches, valves start to feel sluggish and all that stuff.

    Play safe sir.

    Hi BrassBandmajor.
    I am looking for the ones that you advised and I am keen on getting one of the mentioned, I would like to get a Holton Collegiate, I only mentioned this one as like you say Its new and Tempting but I don't want to throw good money after bad. I am now suffering with 'Trumpet Head' I have my 3C & 5C mouthpieces that I use in the band for my Bugle, and I have just bought a new Bullet mouthpiece that is on its way from Japan as we speak, I have bought one of the Yamaha Silent Brass that I pick up tomorrow, so all I need now is a trumpet to plug them into...lol, and I don't know about other people if they get the same but I look at Trumpets and I am dying to get my chops working, When I wasn't bothered about getting a horn again there were loads of them about at really good prices, now I have decided to get one there aren't any available in my price range.. Bugger...lol Sods Law. There are a couple on ebay but they are in the USA and they are asking stupid money for postage. 76:00 and the other Postage is 141:00, and them prices are robbery.

    Tanker, if there's anything a trumpet player needs to develop, it's patience. It's not easy, but it's necessary.

    Well its strange how you have a picture in your mind with what you first want, than it changes and you end up with nothing like you first wanted, BUT you are happier with your end purchase. I started out in my 63yr old ignorance wanting a new John Packer Horn but with the help of the great guys on here I have ended up with something completely different, I would like to thank you guys for steering me away from my ignorant route (43 yrs since I owned a Horn) and for your help, and I would like to give a Massive 'Thank You' to BrassBandMajor for finding me the horn I have just purchased today, waiting for it coming. I have ended up buying a 1956 Boosey & Hawkes 'Emporer' Bb Horn. Not all shiny and sparkling but full of character and quality hopefully.

    Tanker- I have many, many trumpets as I have been collecting & playing them for many years. I also have a vintage Boosey & Hawkes & they are excellent trumpets that can be inexpensively obtained on the used market. The "Booseys" and the Buescher Aristocrats are among my favorite horns with "character" and great valves in spades......and I just discovered the new George Rawlin designed trumpets (8-$900 new) and they blew me away how super well built & great sounding they are!

    I heard those B&H Emperor horns are sturdy and well-built instruments.
    Let us know when it arrives!
