The Trumpet

The trumpet is a brass instrument and has the highest register in the family of brass instruments. It consists of an almost cylindrical, though a bit smaller at the mouth-piece and bigger at the sound-hole, pipe, which is formed, roughly, as a rounded rectangle. The trumpet also has valves which, when pressed, alter the sound. It is played by placing the lips at the mouth-piece and blowing air through the hole. Trumpets have famously been used through history as a signaling device though these do not look or sound like modern trumpets. Today, there are different types of trumpets which vary in shape and size depending on the type of music they are being used for. The most popular by far is the Bb trumpet.
