  • Best C Trumpet

    By: ,

    Hello, As a Graduate of New England Conservatory with a Master's in Trumpet Performance I can not give any C Trumpet any higher praise than this trumpet. This truly is a hidden gem that you will not regret purchasing. I was introduced to this instrument by my teacher Charles Schlueter former Principal Trumpet of the Boston Symphony In a lesson at his residence. I was complaining about the traditional C Trumpets I was using, explaining that I'm not at all happy with how they play. Charlie handed me his Getzen C Trumpet that was hanging on his studio wall. I played a scale on it and my eyes got really big, " I know" he said. Charle played the Getzen all through his years in the Minnesota Symphony before playing Monette. I went to Rayburn Music in Boston, and to my surprise, they had one used Getzen C "SK" Model. After graduating from school I was given a Monette 993 from the family as a graduation gift. The interesting thing is after 20 years I'm still playing my Getzen and sold the Monette. In 1999 I purchased the Getzen for $650 Used and have since sold my Monette for $4500. I recently acquired a large-bore Getzen Eterna Bb circa the 1980s, and I'm just as happy with it.
