I am pleased to be able to join a Trumpet forum and hopefully make some friends from all over the globe. I live in the Ancient City of York in the United Kingdom and I am hoping to get back into Trumpet. I have just turned 63 yrs old and I was brought up on trumpet from the age of 8 yrs old, My grandfather who was 3 times British Army bugling Champion taught me Trumpet and also Bugle. I played Bugle in various Cadets and then joined the British Army, Tank Regiment. (Hence the username) I later became Regimental Bugler, after my army service I went on to play Bugle in various Television & Films when they wanted a Bugler. I am now Lead Bugler but a very limited Side Drummer in a Military Band, I have decided that I want to go back onto trumpet, Its been many many years since I blew Trumpet but being a regular Bugler I have kept my lip in. I am using a 3c and a 5C Trumpet Mouthpiece in my bugle but mainly play on the 3C. with going back to trumpet (although its been many years,) I don't think I need to go back onto a beginners trumpet BUT I am now very undecided which horn to purchase, I am stuck between the John Packer JP152 and the Thomann 400 or the 500L so I am now looking for your advice. Great to meet you all.
