You could describe the sound of a Trumpet in a few ways. For example, you could note that it is a cylindrical, mid to high range brass instrument, and draw your auditory conclusions from that. Perhaps you could relate it to the sound a Trombone makes - higher, and without the slide. Usually the trumpet is the instrument people recognize, and someone would compare, say, a flugle horn to it.
