hi, i'm 22 years old, and am really interested in learning to play trumpet. i've been a musican for almost 10 years, playing guitar, singing and fronting my own bands. i can read music, and have recently become interested in the trumpet. i was wondering what level of trumpet should i be looking for? i see entry level trumpets such as "jupiter" brand, as well as the intermediate and professional level trumpets. should i still be looking for an "entry" level horn, or go for an intermediate one? i'd like to have a horn that i can keep for several years, and one that won't hinder my playing because it's not a good enough player. what should i do? thank you for any help!!

That's blues power!!

Hi, that all depends on how serious you are. You may want to borrow or rent one first, and see how it progresses. If you are serious ater that, since you are an accomplished musician, I suggest a better quality instrument.

my word of advice is not to buy instruments off an auction site. Look around first and see the instruments first hand. I agree that maybe you should rent or borrow a trumpet first because instruments are sometimes pretty costly.
