The trumpet is one of the oldest instruments in history. Primitive trumpets are found on every continent and are usually associated with ceremonial and tribal rituals. Many of the early trumpets were actually large sea shells or animal horns, and were used as a signal by “buzzing” the lips into the smallest end of the shell or animal horn. As technology improved, trumpets began to be made of brass, and were long, straight instruments with a small end with a mouthpiece into which the lips were buzzed, and a flare at the end called a “bell,” as it is today. There are many different variations on the trumpet, including the cornet, flugel horn, and piccolo trumpet. The trumpet used in band, is called the B-flat trumpet, and B-flat trumpets are all made the exact same size, so one size fits all.
