The highest note ever played on the trumpet is a written C four octaves above middle C (C8). Since the trumpet is in the key of Bb, that note sounds like a Bb7, which is higher than the violin, which can go up to an A7. The pitch is also about as high as a piccolo can play.
The standard orchestral trumpet, built in B-flat, has a range of about three octaves extending upward from the F-sharp be extending upward from the F-sharp below middle C(F3 sharp = 185 Hz). Models in D, C, and other pitches also exist.
Using standard technique, the lowest note is the written F♯ below middle C. There is no actual limit to how high brass instruments can play, but fingering charts generally go up to the high C two octaves above middle C.
Tissue damage can occur if the mouthpiece is forced against the lips too hard or if one plays too long or with too much pressure without rest. More serious lip damage can occur from overuse without warming up, as in Hubbard's case.
Long-term, both instruments require a sensational amount of control to produce beautiful music. In some aspects the trumpet requires more conditioning, and the saxophone in others. Short-term the saxophone is probably easier for most. Trumpet is definitely more painful and disrupts the embouchure more.
Trumpet players are known for having strong lip muscles and also high control of the tongue and lip muscles which tend to make them better kissers.
The standard trumpet range extends from the written F♯ immediately below Middle C up to about three octaves higher. Traditional trumpet repertoire rarely calls for notes beyond this range, and the fingering tables of most method books peak at the high C, two octaves above middle C.
The highest note on record is a G10 sung by Georgia Brown, a Brazilian dance/electric singer. You can hear it here (it's really something!). While a G10 is extreme, many of the coloraturas I know sing up to the 7th octave.
The seventh octave is the highest octave of a piano. Using middle C (C4) as a guide, the next higher C is C5 or tenor C. The next C is C6 or soprano high C. The next C, C7 or double high C, is again one octave higher. C7 is eight steps away from the last note on the 88-key piano: C8.
To create the different sounds on a trumpet there are three valves. Between these three valves a trumpeter will learn all the notes in the full range of the trumpet which is up to three octaves (around 39 notes). It isn't easy to get the very high notes and only a very good brass player will be able to reach these.
High C is two ledger lines above the treble staff. Double high C is in the space above the fifth line above the treble staff.
Elephants make a sound, known as a trumpet, to signal excitement, aggression and distress.
Most trumpets are tuned in B flat because exactly this tuning works with the optimal length of pipe in order to produce the unique trumpet timbre. Trumpets tuned in most other keys require less pipe and will produce a slightly brighter tone. Trumpets in the B flat key sound like you expect a trumpet to play.
In addition to the loudness, there are multiple reasons that make the trumpet very versatile. It is small and easy to carry. You don't need much to play it, just a mouthpiece, the horn, and yourself, as opposed to an electric guitar which needs amps and a power cord. They are also sturdy.
A human voice without amplification, though, will usually fail unless the glass is quite fragile. In 2005, the Discovery Channel television show MythBusters proved that a voice alone could break glass. Rock singer Jamie Vendera shattered a wine glass with a 105-decibel wail.
Since 2012, Tim Storms has held the world record for the lowest ever vocal note – that's a deliciously gravelly G -7 (0.189 Hz), which is eight octaves below the lowest G on the piano.
The widest vocal range of any human is 10 octaves ranging from G/G#-5 to G/G#5 (0.7973 Hz - 807.3 Hz), achieved by Tim Storms (USA) at Citywalk Studios in Branson, Missouri, USA, on 1 August 2008. Mr. Storms also holds the record for the lowest vocal note.
The highest-pitched orchestral instrument is the piccolo, but there are some other impressive musical instruments that can reach high ranges.
The trumpet has only three valves and is smaller and easier to transport than a violin. A violin doesn't require embouchure, breath exercises, or strong lungs. Both air support and the violin strings and bow are difficult to learn and take time.
The "official" highest note of a standard flute is the C 3 octaves above middle C (called "4th octave C" if counting from where the flute starts, "7th octave C" on the piano), but I sometimes get asked how to finger notes above it (e.g. when CUCOS played arrangements that seemed determined to push the flutes too high).
Flute Players Make the Best Kissers.
Trumpet. The trumpet is widely known for drawing in more extroverted children. They can be bold, brash, have nervous energy and even tend to be dominant and ambitious. This is due to the nature of the trumpet, which is usually a lead instrument playing a higher melody.
No, playing the trumpet is not bad for your teeth. Links to malocclusion are weak to moderate, but some trumpet players do report slightly loose teeth from many hours of playing their horn. However, the link to weakened or misaligned teeth has not been proven scientifically and may have other causes.
