A 2-valved Trumpet is actually a type of bugle. The purpose is the same as that on a normal trumpet. The only difference is that you can play fewer notes on the two valved instrument, but more than on a traditional bugle.

Why is the french horn so curly?

since there are so many valves, and they are rotory valves, there are actual tubes for each valve, including a valve for the trigger and a valve for no buttons as well. there are not as many valves on the trumpet because they have a different type of valves: the valves of the trumpet work like when you press down the button, the actual valve moves and a hole opens so it shows that the button was pushed down so the pitch comes through. there is only one necessary tube on the trumpet, because the valves are just holes in the tube. this is different on horn, because there are different tubes for each valve. the horn valves are rotors, so when you press down the button, the rotor moves and opens a hole. there is a different rotor for each valve, which means that every valve MUST have its own tube. this is why there are so many tubes on the horn:]

What is a trumpet valve or button?

A trumpet valve is a cylindrical fitting with holes bored in it to match the tubing corresponding with the valves position on the horn.

(Theoretically, you are tuning the instrument to a different pitch with each "fingering.")
