Featured Trumpet Gear

The Trumpet is one of the most well known instruments, and has a starring role in many orchestras and bands, and many genres of music too. Historians believe that the Trumpet dates back to the 13th or 14th century, but the Trumpet we know and love now differs greatly from the Trumpet from way back when. A trumpet (on first glance) might seem like one of the smaller brass instruments, but don't be fooled! The Trumpet can contain (approximately) 6.5 feet of tubing! But don't worry, the way the tubing is structured makes the Trumpet a compact and easy-to-handle instrument.

Why do people love playing the Trumpet?

Trumpets offer a range of tones, and lend themselves well to lots of different musical styles and bands. You'll often see Trumpets in orchestras, but you'll also find them in blues and jazz bands, brass bands, and military bands too. In fact, the Trumpet is well-known for its role in military fanfare and music, and if often the instrument of choice for parades and military shows. The Trumpet is a loud instrument, known for its bright and prominent tone - and the loud, rich tone often carries across large distances, and across large crowds really well.

How do you play the Trumpet?

The Trumpet has a mouthpiece, which the player blows into. To create different tunes and melodies, they then use their fingers to press the pistons on the metal tubing - which gives different notes.
