I started playing the trumpet in high school, and I played it until the fall of my freshman year of college, but I haven’t played it in public since then. But I haven’t played in public since then.
Used Trumpets at Ishibashi Musical Instruments
I bought a used YAMAHA instrument from Ishibashi Gakki. I was advised that I could have bought a cheaper one if I had used Yahoo! Ok, but I thought it would be better to buy one that had been overhauled by a solid music store, so I chose Ishibashi.
I’m very happy with my purchase. The box was full of scratches, though, because it was Sagawa.
The trumpet I received was so clean and free of scratches that I doubted it was really used. However, when I tried to play it, it was easy to blow and there was little resistance, I’m sure the previous owner broke it in. I thought I made a good purchase.
Soft case for everyday use on Amazon.
I also bought a soft case to make it easier to carry. Practice is on weekends and I’m sure I’ll rarely encounter a crowded train, so it should be fine. I often go by car, so this should be enough for me.
このケースはAmazonで買いました。[highlight]「Ｊマイケル トランペットバッグ TRB-301」[/highlight]というケースです。
It is convenient to put the whole mouthpiece in.
I like the practice mute.
しかし御存知の通りこの楽器、大きな音が出ます。家で練習できるようにするため練習用ミュート買いました。以前持っていたものがあるのですが、音程は変わる、すごく抵抗があるので、今回新たにこちらの[highlight]「Bremner sssssshhhhhh Mute トランペット用」[/highlight]購入してみました。
It’s pretty good! I think there’s a slight change in pitch, but it’s barely noticeable, and I don’t feel much resistance. It’s probably just a normal mute. Of course, the volume can be reduced considerably. I can practice on weeknights with this.
I have been playing the horn for a while, but at first I couldn’t even get a D note out of it, even though I used to play the horn occasionally. I think I can get As with momentum. Oops, it’s a Bb tube.
