This year we have many 2nd and 3rd year players at Unis. I have no doubt that some of them would like to own their own instrument. Before you fall in the trap of buying a bad instrument off of Amazon, read my recommendations below.
Approved Brands for Band Instruments:
Bach, Selmer, Yamaha, Jupiter, Wiseman, Holton, Blessing, King, Bundy, Conn, Armstrong, Gemeinhardt, Artley, Besson, Getzen, Renard, Kanstul.
*Please avoid plastic trumpets and trombones*
Approved Brands for Orchestra Instruments:
Franz Hoffman, Scherl & Roth, Glaesel, Kay, Yamaha.
*Please avoid the painted ones and anything not made from wood. It should be made of wood and have a natural finish (wood will have a light or dark stain on it, that’s fine).*
