Schilke Trumpet

What top professional brand of trumpet should I consider buying for college?

I've been playing trumpet now for just over 8 years. I started on a Getzen 700 series, which I now use for marching band and now play on a Yamaha Xeno, which I don't really like. I plan on selling the Xeno and purchasing a new trumpet that will be best for me in college. I need something that will do me good in music performance.
I'm really happy with my Getzen, even if it is a 700. Because of that, I've looked into the Getzen custom series. They seem convincing.

Are there any other brands or models that I should look into?

Thanks.

Your budget will determine what you ultimately decide to purchase. However, what you want to be concerned with is how you will blend with other trumpet players in your ensembles at your school. Believe it or not, there are schools that flat out say not to use a Monette trumpet for an audition.

In my opinion, I think that it's best to choose a trumpet with that has what I like to call the "American Sound Model". It is based upon the sound quality of a Bach trumpet. The reason for this is the bell design of the Bach Stradivarius model. For years, the top professional trumpets were Bach, Benge, and Schilke. With regard to Benge trumpets, this is pre-UMI/Conn-Selmer. They were more popular on the West Coast, as Bach and Schilke was more prevalent on the East Coast. While Schilke trumpets are excellent instruments, they didn't blend well within trumpet sections. Schilke added the "S Series", made specifically to blend more with Bach trumpets.

Enter... Yamaha, along with a host of other manufuctures which some refer to as "Boutique trumpets". Yamaha's YTR-6335 model is much more Bach-like than the Xeno models. There are a lot of classical players who choose to use the YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew model for a Bb trumpet. The lacquered model has a nicer sound than the silverplated model, in my opinion.

Some companies, such as Kanstul for example, happen to make great bells, and some make great valves (like Getzen). The smaller companies use the good parts available from different manufacturers, in oder to make a better trumpet.

While the popular choice might be a Bach trumpet, the quality control is not what it should be with Bach trumpets. In my lifetime, I have only played 2 which I would consider owning. Players who are able to find a "good one" often have to choose it from a selection (15 or more) of Bach's. Few music stores can afford to carry that kind of an inventory, and few trumpet players have the patience to take that much time play-testing that many horns.

Good luck in finding the trumpet that fits you!
