We are a few hours away from Ashville, and both Reverb and Craigslist have no trumpets within nearly 100 miles of here. I'd have to play one to know if I could live with it. My Blessing is very OLD and tired and beat up and I'm just ready to move on to something better. It was used and we've spent a lot on it to replace parts and have welds fixed and other stuff. I'm playing 2nd trumpet in my 4th year of HS marching and concert band. Thanks for your help. Are the new trumpets in this price range not worth looking at? There's a Levante? at Guitar Center for about $400 new. Thanks again.
