  1. In a few months, I will start learning on a tenor sax. Haven't bought one yet, likely will buy from a local tech,independent store owner. Has anyone have experience with playing trumpet and doubling on sax.
  2. Sounds was OK. Thought it had a flat sound. Tried different mouthpieces, have slide out further. Still wasn't happy with the sound. Brought to a lesson, teacher verified it was flat. Sold the trumpet on ebay. Finally bought two Getzen professional trumpets. Renaissance and a Canadian Brass trumpet. Decided to keep the Canadian Brass trumpet, easier to play, likes different mouthpieces. Made a profit on selling the renaissance.
  3. Looking for a current cornet blog. It can be American, Canadian, Irish,Welsh, Scottish or British.
  4. Couldn't find copper top and bottoms cap in the price point I wanted from USA supplier. So I did a best price on a copper trim kit from KGU from Ukraine.
  5. Looking for raw brass lightweight top and bottom caps for my Getzen Canadian Brass trumpet. Received top and bottom caps from Edwards Instruments Company today. They fit my Getzen cornet but not the trumpet. Want to buy from a North American supplier.
  6. Found out I like the Bach megatone mouthpieces better than the Wick Heavytop mouthpieces. Selling the Wick 1.5, 4 X trumpet mouthpieces on ebay. The Wick Heavytop 3 C is including with the Getzen Renaissance trumpet. Since I bought a professional trumpet, noticed I like the Bach megatone 5 B, 5 C mouthpieces. The Canadian Brass trumpet was provided with a 3 megatone clone mouthpiece. Also like the Bach megatone 5 B, Wick Heavytop 4 C and Bach standard 5 C mouthpiece. Selling the Jupiter 520 M cornet. Included are two Bach 3 C mouthpiece and a standard Jupiter 7 C.
  7. Since I bought Getzen professional trumpets, I have changed my mouthpieces. No longer like the 1.5 C or the 3C mouthpieces. Did receive a 3 trumpet canadian brass mouthpiece, very similar to a Bach megatone. Playing Wick Heavytop 4 X, Bach megatone 5B, 4 B mouthpieces.
  8. Thanks. I ordered hetman black label. Since I have playing more, the light valve oil doesn't last long.
  9. Have been using Latromba #1 valve oil on all my horns. Want a thicker oil for my trumpet. Looking at an odor less synthetic valve oil. One that doesn't leave a yellow residue. Thanks.
  10. Very expressive horn, brighter sounded to me than the renaissance trumpet. The mouthpiece provided is a Canadian Brass 3 megatone mouthpiece, works well. Obviously made by Bach. It will be hard to sell this trumpet, not very well known. A seller on ebay was unable to sell it the first time around, so had to relist it. Due to the pandemic I am not working my part time job. Have to sell the Getzen Renaissance trumpet to pay down my PayPal bill.
