You need to trust the band director.

It is his job to get the sound mix that is needed.

Some of them like the trumpets far too much for my taste.

But I am not in charge. In fact, if I was worried I would talk to the section leader.

It is pretty common to hear the director tell the trumpets to blend more and reduce volume.

Some of them seem proud of having to be told that, for some reason.

Besides, if the band director has not said anything, then, as has been mentioned, it is probably that the trumpets are just behind your head that makes the mix out of whack to your ears.

Trust the director.

Blend with the section leader.

Go for the tone.

Will you have a chance to check out your new setup before the band starts meeting again?

I will. Because of COVID we probably won't be able to meet until August (maybe later).
Well, that is a pretty lame bright side, but I guess we will have to take what we can get.

I cannot imagine what it would have been like for me to loose a chunk of band like that in my school days.

Best wishes in coping, and maybe turning this to your advantage in the long run somehow.
