In the brass instrument family, there are few others as well-known and widely-played as the trumpet. Not only is it a versatile horn found in a huge range of musical genres, but it also has a lineage dating back through thousands of years of signaling instruments used for battle and hunting. That's no surprise, since the sound of the trumpet - the highest register in brass - is so stark and cutting. Although the trumpet's most common key is Bb, there's a well-earned place for C trumpets, like those you'll find here, in American orchestras. These ensembles take advantage of the C trumpet's brighter sound and sharper articulation to accentuate and add clarity to the brass section.

Like most instruments, C trumpets come in plenty of different styles that have something to offer any musician. For example, if you're planning to jump in with both feet with the C trumpet as a beginner, check out instruments like the Fides FTR-5010ML Pioneer Series C Trumpet or the Getzen 3070 Custom Series C Trumpet. These capable instruments are easy to play, and just as easy to fit into a novice musician's budget. On the other hand, maybe you're an experienced player looking for a professional-quality horn? In that case, something like the Yamaha YTR-9445NYS Custom Artist Model Series C Trumpet could fit the bill. Or, if you want to go full-on European style with rotary valves, consider instruments such as the Kanstul 1506 Series Rotary C Trumpet and the Yamaha YTR-948FFMS Custom Series Rotary C Trumpet.

In the end, it's up to you to decide which of these C trumpets could be the best fit for your individual tastes and personal playing style. Valve style is just one aspect that separates trumpets from one another - there are also the choices of reverse leadpipes and interchangeable bells, not to mention the material and finish. So with a good sense of what you're looking for in an instrument, it's actually not too tough to narrow down your options until you arrive at the perfect match.
