Trumpet ( concert Bb )

Brass Brands Available In-store

The trumpet family ranges from the piccolo ( smallest ) with the highest register in the brass family, to the bass trumpet, which is pitched one octave below the standard B-flat or C Trumpet. The most common being pitched in B♭ (a transposing instrument), having a tubing length of  1.48 m.
Early trumpets did not provide means to change the length of tubing, whereas modern instruments generally have three valves  in order to change their pitch . There are eight combinations of three valves, making seven different tubing lengths, with the third valve sometimes used as an alternate fingering equivalent to the 1–2 combination.

For piccolo trumpet work, the Kanstul Model 920 “Custom Class” piccolo trumpet is the one to have. Whether for Handel or wedding gigs, the small bell and medium large .460″ bore give the Model 920 a full brilliant sound. Vlad Lavrik of the Russian National Orchestra likes this model, as does freelance artist/composer/arranger Alexandra M. Signor.
Adapts quickly to Bb or A. The mouthpipes included are for cornet shank mouthpieces.
