Getzen renaissance trumpet
Selling a 2000 Getzen Renaissance professional trumpet on ebay. On the main tuning slide there are some scratches, scratch next to fixed ring and finish loss on 3rd valve oil.
Would appreciate if someone would look at the listing. Tell me what is a reasonable price.
Presently I am using Latromba #1 valve oil on my trumpet and cornets. Not happy with oil on my trumpet valves.
Would like a recommendation for a thicker synthetic oil.
Looking at Hetman #2 valve oil or Ultra pure. Like an odor less oil.
What valve oil leaves a yellow residue? Don't want that one.
RE: Stagg cornets
Any cornet at that price point are made in China. Companies buy them and place their name on them.
The quality is not consistent. Seams are not soldered correctly, the valves break down quickly. Most music repair shops will not work on them. I have owed several cornets lower priced cornets made in China. Most I have sold for parts.
Ask the companies if they use serial numbers. If the don't, don't buy.
The last cornet I bought used, was a Schiller Shephard's crook professional. for $149.00. Cost of a new one was $279.00.
Had all the seams re-soldered etc. Minimum cost for repair is $100.00 dollars.
Sold it for a $100. 00. Good looking horn and played well.
Bought a used Jupiter 520 M student cornet for $179.00. Excellent built, fantastic sound. Plays like a semi pro, nearly professional cornet.
My recommendation is to buy a used Getzen, Bach, Yamaha, Jupiter cornet.
