Have you heard of an Augmented trumpet?

I do not share shop videos normally but this one is particularly important for me to share... It's getting to back-to-school season and "new horn" season as well. This horn demonstrates that just because the horn looks cool it might not play cool. This is the famous "Augmented trumpet" we received as a trade in from ITG. The horn's terrible playability really messed with my head. In these days where so many students quit band I have to think some of the reasons are the just terrible quality instruments they are buying online.

PLEASE do yourself a favor and stay informed of just what's out there on the marketplace. We are always here for you if you ever have questions.
