Where can I buy a TRUMPET? :)
« on: August 29, 2008, 11:05:42 PM »
It looks like i am gonna get one soon. :) right now, i am scouting for shops who sells trumpets. any suggestions? Specifically, i am looking for a brand new, branded "beginner/student" trumpet.

The model i am specifically looking for is a YAMAHA YTR1335S (the one with a silver finish, YTR1335 = lacquer finish. i do not like lacquer). or perhaps a YTR2335 with silver finish also.

or you could suggest other branded beginner trumpets in that price range (more or less 20k). oh, and it must have a silver finish. i really do not like lacquer/gold.

of course. i dont think i could ever be "tapos" sa isang instrument.

i think i want to try to play an instrument thats compact and of a higher register. and really, the sound of the trumpet is just too beautiful to ignore. so strong, raw and distinct but yet it could also be quite soothing. :)

OKAY, yupangco says that they have my desired model priced at 29k but they are currently out of stock and they are not sure when they will have stocks again (can be from a few weeks to a whole year). im getting a little desperate. my birthday is nearing (1 week from now) and i really want to start playing already.

UPDATE:

ordered a beginner bach trumpet from a guy my friend referred. that guy is known for importing brasses and supplying local major orchestras. will get it by 3 weeks time.

in the mean time, i've been practicing with a mouthpiece and occasionally borrowing a trumpet from orchestra mates.

truly, it was very hard to make the trumpet,or mouthpiece rather, sound with braces. i've only got the hang of it by the 3rd day.
Now, (its my fifth day), i am able to consistently make the trumpet sound and little by little, creating a fuller tone. My problem is that i could not hold a note long enough when i play. hehe. and i do not have control of the notes i play. hehehehe.

basically, thats it. cant wait for my trumpet to arrive.
