What trumpet should I play/buy?


Posted on April 11, 2015 by 

It depends on HOW you approach playing the trumpet. I would try EVERY ONE of these horns.

Lead horns:

My A list horns in order:

  • Wild Thing
  • Callet Jazz
  • Calicchio 2-9 (if you like open horns)
  • Calicchio 1S-2 (if you like a little resistance)
  • Calicchio 1S-7 (if you like resistance)
  • Schilke (Both large and med bore models are free blowing)

My B list horns in order:

  • Kanstul 1500 series
  • Vax model Yamaha
  • Bach 43-72 light weight
  • Shew model Yamaha
  • MF horn and a valve alignment
  • Arturo model LeBlanc and a valve alignment

 

Legit horns

My A list horns in order:

  • Wild Thing with the #2 slide
  • Calicchio copper 2-9 (if you like open horns)
  • Calicchio copper 2-2 (if you like resistance)
  • Kanstul 1500 series copper bells

My B list horns in order:

  • B&S Challenger
  • Vax model Yamaha
  • Bach 37
  • Conn Vintage One

Funny thing there are a great many horns on this trumpet list made by Zig Kanstul.

You really need to play them all. Nobody knows which one you will like or play best.
