Okay so, I need a lyre for my trumpet. I used one in highschool but barely, I usually memorized the music. But now one is required for my marching band and I was wondering if anyone could tell me the difference between a: 1 inch bend, 2 inch bend, 4 inch straight. (I need a new one since I lost my old one and I don't know what the old one was.)

Here's a link. My problem is they use the same generic image for all their lyres on the site so I can't tell what the differences are.

When I used a lyre I got a trombone one that clamped to my bell. It makes the trumpet a little bell heavy but I didn't really care. I had to do a little tweaking to get it to work but nothing major.

I was going to buy that one but it's out of stock at my local store.
