Trumpet Bach

any trumpet players out there?

I've played the trumpet for about 7 years now, and now i'm at college level. I've been looking into getting a new professional trumpet because the one i have now is slightly below that level. Anyone have suggestions or comments about their current trumpet? Bach/Monette are pretty big names in trumpet, but i'm wondering if anyone thinks there's something better. I can't spend $10,000 on a trumpet of course.

My recommendation would be Yamaha. I wasn't always a big fan, but in recent years, they have been making better and better instruments. Prior to this, the consistency from instrument to instrument was very good, but there wasn't a special quality that set them apart from other trumpets... at least not enough to make me want to play one. Thankfully, that has changed. If you want quality and value, look no further.

Bob Malone, who is best known for his "Bach Conversions", and Wayne Tanabe, who is well known for his valve alignments, and general brass expertise, have been working with Yamaha to help design trumpets that really stand out from the crowd. You will see Yamaha trumpets in every venue, from world renowned Symphony Orchestras to some of the most successful commercial players in the world today. A list of Yamaha Trumpet Artists can be found here:

I like the YTR-8310Z - Bobby Shew model, very much. A new model its the YTR-8335LA - Wayne Bergeron model. The Shew model is very, very popular with many trumpet players. Elements of the design of the Shew model were used to design the Bergeron model. The Shew model is offers both quality and value. It is one of my most favorite trumpets to play. The Bergeron model is slightly more expensive, but it's not out of reach, as far as cost goes, especially if it plays well for you.

Kanstul trumpets are also worth considering. They have basically copied Bach and Benge designs, but they have also improved upon them. In their "Kustom Class", the 1500B and the 1600 models are very good. The 1500B would compare to a Bach 180 model, and the 1600 is the trumpet that Zig Kanstul designed for Wayne Bergeron, prior to Wayne signing on as a Yamaha artist. In their "Chicago" series, the 1000 or 1001 models compare to the Benge 3X and MLP model trumpets, which were very popular with many West Coast players.

At present, there are a good number of used trumpets from the above mentioned, for sale on trumpet websites. Check www.trumpetherald.com "Marketplace". Trumpet Master is another website that you can check. www.trumpetmaster.com

In my lifetime, I've only played 2 Bach trumpets that I would consider owning. They are both coveted by their owners. I have tried many Bach trumpets... 37's, 43's, 72's, Medium Bore "New York" models, etc., etc. No offense to Bach owners, but they are just not for me. If you have time to try 20 or 30 of them, you might get lucky and find something that comes close to the ones that I liked. The problem would be finding a store that has that kind of inventory. I would also add that both of those trumpets had been worked on, considerably, in order to play the way that they do.

I hope that you will enjoy your new, or new to you trumpet!

Best of luck to you!
