    Real organs don't have transpose buttons. The organists that know how to transpose are good enough that they prefer to work with trumpeters who are good enough to transpose too. :-)

    The organs with transpose features are abundant in America. Of course the organists prefer for the trumpet player to transpose, but sometimes they have to suppress their desires and just accompany the featured instrument.

    Suppressing the desires of organ players may lead to intense frustration...

    Hey, after thinking about this, the entire principle is completely wrong. Are we trumpet players not the kings of the orchestra? Were all other instruments not created to lay the foundation for our sound? Does not the galaxy revolve around us? The piano player ought to be transposing one note down. Let's get our priorities straight here guys!

    Or, you can just buy a "C" trumpet.
