Trumpet (7/10)

List item

  1. Playability: 5/10. Much of the trumpet depends on your own breath support and proper technique, making it a difficult instrument to just pick up and learn by yourself. 

  2. Aesthetic: 4/10. You can’t play many types of songs on the trumpet (say, a ballad may not be the best choice), so its specific sound docks it several points. The trumpet is loud, strong, and clear of sound, making it difficult to fit with mellow music. Also, I don’t know about you, but the sound of a trumpet makes me laugh.  I don’t think I could take a trumpet ballad very seriously.

  3. Convenience: 9.5/10. The trumpet is fairly small and easy to carry. You just put it in its case, and that’s it, you’re good to go.
