A trumpet is an instrument in the brass family. It uses valves, mainly three, to change its pitch.. To produce a tone on a trumpet, the player must "buzz" their lips into the trumpet's mouthpiece, using plenty of air which should be engaged by use of the diaphragm, or upside-down bowl shaped muscle… that allows your lungs to expand and contract.. The trumpet is probably the most recognizable instrument from the brass family, and it pitched in the key of Bb, or a half step lower than the actual or "concert" tone. When writing or transposing music for the Bb* trumpet, one must write everything down a whole step (two 1/2 steps) to produce the correct melody/tones.. There is more than one kind of trumpet. The most widely recognized is the Bb trumpet. Similar to the Bb trumpet is the coronet, which is pitched the exact same as a Bb trumpet, but is more tightly wound and helps the player produce a much darker, richer tone (ideal for learning on). There is also a C trumpet, which is built almost exactly like the Bb trumpet but with a different length of pipe for a different tonal center. There is an Eb trumpet, which is slightly different, with much less pipe length and a higher pitch. Finally, there is the Piccalo trumpet, which is pitched an exact octave above the regular Bb trumpet, and usually features a fourth valve to help intonation and acoustics.. the lower case b following an uppercase letter refers to a notation called a flat, meaning to lower the pitch one half step.

A bass trumpet sounds in the register of a baritone, exactly one octave below that of a normal b-flat trumpet. The bore size (diameter of the tubing) of the bass trumpet is considerably greater than that of a normal b-flat trumpet, and the bell size and slide length will all be similarly increased. …The mouthpiece of the Bass Trumpet also resembles a Trombone/Baritone mouthpiece. ( Full Answer )
the bell is exactly what is sounds like...its the bell shaped part at the front of the trumpet where the sound comes out...same for a sax or clarinet or trombone etc...
It is about 130cm if the brass was fully stretched out. Found this in a musical encyclopedia.
A trompet is a musical instrument used in a lot of different kinds of music. Ranging from pop to jazz to classical music, it has found its way to many listeners all over the world.
The trumpet is awesome. It is a brass, which means you buzz into the mouthpiece to make noise. The case is small compared to a trombone or saxophone, but large to a clarinet or flute case. The trumpet plays higher notes, and the faster you buzz your lips, the higher you go, giving the trumpet no set… range - but the better you are, the higher you can play. Trumpets produce a cheerful, bright sound that plays the melody in a lot of band music. ( Full Answer )
It comes from the 14th century word Trompette or trump which means to extol or proclaim.
This is really simple! First put an ice pack or a napkin of ice on the place where the mouthpiece and receiver connect. Leave it there for a little while. After 5-10 minutes start turning the mouthpiece counter clockwise and it should come out very easily. If this still does not work use a lighter a…nd very carefully hold it under the receiver. Then twist and that should do it. make sure not to melt your receiver and to wash it afterward. If it still does not work your mouthpiece has been severely jammed and you will have to take to repair shop to get fixed or use a pulling machine. Hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!! ( Full Answer )
It's a cheap mass produced trumpet made in China. I wouldn't describe it as good.
Color wise: mainly gold or silver (depending on the style, brand, and pitch) Noise range: Noise is controlled but if you have a new trumpet player in the house it's usually loud, obnoxious, and sounds like a dying animal. Difficulty: It all depends on the player and his/her ability
There could be a number of things in the bell. Clean it with a trumpet cleaning snake and run water through it.
Depends on how small. Pocket trumpets are basically trumpets with their tubing wrapped much more tightly than normal. Piccolo trumpets actually contain half the tubing of a normal trumpet and are actually much smaller than other trumpets.
A trumpet concerto is a concerto for solo trumpet and instrumental ensemble, typically an orchestra.
A piccolo trumpet is a trumpet with half the normal length of tubing. This allows it to produce pitches much higher than a normal trumpet.
Valves are used to change the amount of tubing that air has to travel through in the trumpet, which changes the pitch of the sound coming out.
I have never heard about them, why dont you stick to the common brands? like Bach, Schilke, Yamaha, Benge, B&S or lawler... It sounds like the question is coming from someone that may have to consider the bottom line expense. A new trumpet is a very steep investment if it is a brand as suggested a…bove. To be brief, unless you purchase a used, even vintage trumpet...getting what you pay for (if its 'cheaper than most'...such as the Hawk trumpet, will get you a 'cheap' horn that looks good to start and literally falls apart and or is out of tune.......a loss of your investment. Most informed trumpet players today will let you know that your best bets are the used Holton 600 line.(TR-602, 603,612 etc. P 602 and more. They are well engineered, well made and are excellent playing horns which can take you from beginner to an intermediate level. A site such as eBay offers them in a wide range of prices, but truth be told, there are so many on the market that you can ignore all prices above $150 and get one in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. There are many other valid choices..i.e. the trumpet that amateurs to pros state as being being one of the finest horns built....the Olds Ambassador. Although the last model was made in 1979, there are many in very good to excellent condition from $100 to $200 dollars. I am a collector of horns and not Olds specifically, but I do have 5 of them if thats any indication of my belief in the playability and overall excellence. ( Full Answer )
bach and Yamaha trumpets are the best to get. plus silver trumpets have better tone quality :) *SP* The best type of trumpet to get is considered to be the Bach Stradivarius. That's what I have, and it is great. =) CS Actually, that is all a matter of opinion. Bach and Yamaha are very good p…roduction instruments, but most custom horns are as good or better. But the main criteria is, whatever fits the player is probably the best choice. ( Full Answer )
a trumpet is an instrument that is used in orchestra bands and is often used in jazz music. it is a brass instrument with three valves that change the pitch which will produce the notes.
Go with Stomvi or Kanstul? They are both very expensive and recognized names in the music industry...However to answer the question; "Is a Holton trumpet a good trumpet? Yes, and fortunately at every level. The T-602 (T is for trumpet), or C-602 (C, cornet) is the beginners model that was made for m…any years and was known as the collegiate until the 70's. Recognized as strongly built, in tune with itself and better than many brand's intermediate models. Today, the T-602 and its variants, 602 R and 602 RC (made in Japan's Yamaha factory) are available used in such great number that they are nearly being given away on eBay. If you are looking for a pro or near pro horn there are many Holton models to choose from. The best of these are the vintage models which can be investigated in part at the holtonloyalist.com...but one sure sign is having a Manyard Ferguson endorsed model. Although not foolproof, the rule of thumb regarding this brand is; the 600 level are the beginning horns, mthe 300's intermediates and the 200's and 100's pro level. Until the great mergers and death of owners etc., Holton, now owned by the Steinway group, was the largest brass instrument producer in the world and has produced many of the finest trumpets and cornets ever designed. Fortunately for collectors, very little information is currently available at any one source about the 'old' Holton company and there are bargains to be had. ( Full Answer )
the trumpet was not perfected by one person. it was perfected over many years by many inventors
Not really, no. It's a cheap import marketed to beginners. It's poorly built and doesn't play well.
Most of your local music stores will have some sort of rental program. If you go to school most offer some sort of program to rent it for the school year in band.
In staff C then above it E then high G G then E then G
I'm assuming you are referring to a mute. There are numerous types of mutes, but some of the most common are straight mutes and cup mutes.
the trumpet has many uses. it could be used in war to raise the spirits of the soldiers. it could be used in the morning to wake you up. it could be used for a memorial. or, it could be played for enjoyment.
If this is actually your first time playing Trumpet, these care tips will make it easier. (Even though I'm a Tenor Sax player) -You should always make sure your valves are well-oiled using valve oil. -ALWAYS EMPTY YOUR SPIT VALVE BEFORE PLAYING!!! Or else your trumpet can't hit your targeted h…igh notes. -You have slides on your Trumpet. So the best oil for them is Trombone slide greese. (Oil.) -NEVER over-oil(greese) your trumpet. moving your trumpet too fast will cause your slides to fly accross the room, and you will lose contorl of your fingerings. - NEVER, EVER eat food before playing ANY instrument! (Not even if you are a percussionist!) You can cause a (very) nasty build-up in your Trumpet, and your Trumpet will have to go into shop to get fixed. (Music stores. EX: Port Huron Music, or Eastside Music Store.) -But if a build-up does happen in your Trumpet, check for food, or empty your spit valve--- your Trumpet should gurgle when that happens, so EMPTY YOUR SPIT! -If you don't want your Trumpet, (or any other instrument) in shop, try this: (Recomended for BRASS players only!) Soak your instrument in your bathtub, using luke-warm water, and soap. (No shampoo or body wash. JUST regular "Dial" hand-soap will do.) Place your instrument in the water, and let it soak for a half-an-hour. -Check to make sure there is no food left in your Trumpet or ANY brass instrument. After you Re-assemble your instrument, just blow through it. So there is no left over water and soap. (P.S. Don't put your mouth-peice in the bathtub. It costs at least $20 to get a new one. Clean your mouth-peice by hand.) -ALWAYS make sure your mouth-peice (brass players) is not rusted, or a ring of acne (or zits) will form around you mouth, and you won't be able to play. I really hope this helps. You should still listen to my advice even though I'm a Sax player. (Trust me, I know all about this.) ( Full Answer )
many things contribute to the fame of the trumpet, and the label given to all trumpeters. the trumpet has been around for thousands of years, and it is in many famous books. one of these books is the bible. the trumpet is the most talked about instrument in the bible. also, the buisine trumpet made …trumpeting and trumpeters famous. when you hear "buisine" you probably have no idea what i am talking about, but you have probably seen one at one time in your life. when royalty would enter a room and a trumpeter would raise the ling trumpet with a banner hanging from it, that is a buisine trumpet. so many kids learn about the trumpet at an early age, due to movies and fairytales. also, many solos have been made for the trumpet, and it is a unique instrument. it can be loud and powerful, or it could be soft and melodic. hope this answers your question.

Well, the trumpet has no definite shape but its mainly oval shaped and the bell is more of a triangle. However the case is rectangle. Hope this helps?
There's not really and antonym for the word trumpet. Antonym means "opposite" and there's nothing that's really an exact opposite of the trumpet. There are things that are different, but different and opposite aren't the same.

The tubes are bent to the correct shape from hard drawn brass, copper, or nickel. The bell is assembled using a single sheet of brass and has it's bow bent and flare rounded. The valves are bored and soldered together as a module, then the whole thing is soldered into a working trumpet. The brass i…s finally buffed then the ancillaries like felts and corks are added to the finished product. ( Full Answer )
"I dont think that conn is a good trumpet. You should go for a bach, getzen, dynasty, or anything but king and conn. All i know is that conn is a good trombone brand." My two cents as a trumpet-playing band director: The older Conn and King trumpets and cornets are excellent for beginning student…s. Through the years Conn has also made a few good intermediate and professional models. I would recommend a good used Conn over a brand new cheap-o brand for my own beginning students. For a "step-up" instrument, I would recommend a Bach, Yamaha, or Getzen trumpet, but these companies also make entry-level instruments. --- Both King and Conn are made by the same company Selmer. In fact Selmer trade under the company names: . Bach . CG Conn . Holton . Aristocrat . Prelude Yamaha are famed for their consistency of tonal quality across the register and quality control. Bach is the top of the line for Selmer. Conn is usually lesser quality marching band equipment. Holton only sells professional models under Selmer. Prelude is Bachs student low cost line ( Full Answer )
The trumpet has a nominal capability of playing 30 different notes (an expert can get more) and each note it plays is of a different frequency. There is no one, single "frequency" of a trumpet.
It is pretty simple. First you need to detach any detachable piece, such as all the valves and any other removable piece. The easiest method of cleaning your trumpet inside out is by laying it on top of a towel in a bath tub. Fill the tub with warm water with some detergent or cleaning lubricant. D…o not clean fingering valves. To dry the trumpet, leave the trumpet on a dry towel overnight. ( Full Answer )
usually, a trumpet is silver, brass, or copper. dont buy the "red" or "black" or any trumpet like that, it messes up the laquer
The name "trumpet" comes from the Latin "tromba", which is also the modern Italian name for the instrument.
Try turning the valve around. Unscrew the silver part by each valve and turn them until the white square is facing you and screw the silver part back on
Each of the valves should have a number inscribed on them, a 1 2 or 3. each of them going into their respective valve casing. after putting them in and screwing on the valve cap, twist the top of the valve cap to the right until you cant twist it anymore, if it doesn't go don't force it. this is how… you set the valves in the right position inside the valve casing ( Full Answer )
The written range of the modern 3 valved trumpet is from the F# below middle C to the C two octaves above middle C, although good players can get higher and less able players not as high.
One animal that trumpets is the trumpeter swan. The link has of what they sound like.
An A can be played by holding down the first and second valves. This is the same fingering as a middle E, so do not get confused between the two. P.S. I am a trumpet player in my school band.
They are made in China and are cheap. They are not good quality instruments. I wouldn't waste my money on them if I were you.
A Bb for trumpet is a C, open, because the trumpet isn't already in concert pitch it needs to be transposed 2 steps up. Like a F for many other instruments would be a G, open, on trumpet. It's actually two half-steps, not two steps.
The most common trumpets are in B flat, if they aren't B flat it will say at the begging of the name for example the"E flat trumpet"
I assume you mean Mendini. I wouldn't get this horn. I would go for a used Yamaha, Bach, Getzen, or King. Bundy is good, too.
Its worrying that there is mould in there in the first place! You can pay for it to be chemical cleaned or ultrasonic cleaning an any brass repair merchants.
Yes, by either pulling out the largest slide or by pushing it in, depending on whether you are sharp or flat.
An "A" can be played by pressing both the 1st and 2nd valves down, but be careful because "partials" exist that can allow you to play another note while pressing down the same valve combinations.
because the trumpet is so loud they used the trumpet to scare and confuse enemies in wars. trumpets are made from the time of jesus
