Re: Intermediate Trigger Trombones - Thoughts & Suggestions
I went to our local/regional music store over the weekend and sat in the instrument try-out room for an hour going playing different brands and models. In terms of playability and tone, it was close between the Yamahas and Conns. I thought the Conns had a richer lower end but, to my invariably French horn embouchure and ear, the Yamahas were better in the higher register. My students will only rarely play in the lower register, anyway. I felt like the Yamahas were more sturdily constructed, felt more reliable and am going to try to purchase those. I'd probably make up any difference in price between the Yamaha and Jupiter in the first round of repairs.
