What are the best brand of trumpets to buy?

I'm getting a little tired of my beginner trumpet, and looking for a good buy.

What brands are the best?
And are vintage ones better?

Thanks

If you're looking for value and quality, look for used trumpets. You can expect to spend anywhere from $300.00 to $1400.00, or more, for an intermediate or professional trumpet in very good to excellent condition.

There are some vintage professional trumpets that are very good quality. Some carry a higher price tag because of the era in which they were made, and the fact that they may have been restored, i.e., valves rebuilt, trumpet replated/relacquered, etc.. "Elkhart" Bach Strads and Martin Committee trumpets would fall into this category.

One of the best values that you'll find, in my opinion, is a Getzen Capri model. They are very good intermediate trumpets that play like a pro horn. The Besson International model is also an intermediate trumpet that plays like a pro horn.

You can often find a Yamaha Bobby Shew 6310Z model for a very reasonable price. If so, that would be my first recommendation, as they are an excellent pro horn. They are best in lacquer, as that is what Bobby Shew plays and recommends. They are available in silver, too, if that's your preference. The newer YTR-8310Z is an excellent quality trumpet, at a very good value.

An Olds Mendez model, Clark Terry model, Olds Recording, or Olds Special trumpets are great vintage horns that I can recommend. Reynolds is another lesser known vintage name brand. The Reynolds Contempora is a top rate professional trumpet. The Paris Selmer Radial model, or a Selmer K-modified model, are a couple of other vintage trumpets that are very good. Vintage Yamaha "700" series trumpets, or a YTR-6335 are very good trumpets. Both are pro models. The 700 series trumpets were a bit lighter in weight than the 6335. There's also the King Silver Sonic model, which was played by Harry James, as was the Selmer "Balanced" model. Many of these are available at very reasonable prices, while some carry a premium price.

You can check online trumpet websites, such as www.trumpetherald.com Look in the "Marketplace". I have dealt with many people on that site, buying and selling, with confidence. A store that has a tremendous selection of used trumpets is Dillon Music, in New Jersey. www.dillonmusic.com They are also a company with which I have done business and can recommend.

Buying a used trumpet is an excellent way of finding a good used professional trumpet. What you must be concerned with is whether the instrument has had any major repairs, and what shape the valves and leadpipe are in. One problem that exists with trumpets is that the leadpipe can develop "red rot". That occurs when the copper begins to oxidize, and it can eventually become a hole. Quite often, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, ask the seller for several photos of the horn.

There are many owners of used and vintage used trumpets who have not taken the time, nor spent the money, to have small dents removed. Because of this fact, you can often find a very good deal. And, the repair work is not likely to be costly. However, if it needs a valve rebuild, that usually costs a fair amount of money. Don't be afraid to ask someone why they are selling their trumpet.

If you come across a deal that seems too good to be true, it probably is. You do have to exercise some caution when buying used instruments, because there are some "Scammers" out there. Stick to the trumpet websites and stores that have earned a good reputation. Particularly on the Trumpet Herald, you can see how long someone has been a member, and how knowledgeable and reputable they are.

Best of luck to you! I hope that you enjoy your "new to you" trumpet!
