    I'm sticking this here because I can't find any other place for it:

    Anyone know a good book of etudes for bass trumpet? Preferably something fairly modern?

    I live 'way out in the sticks, and don't have access to big city selection.

    I searched, and the etudes that popped up were for trumpet (just play 'em down an octave) in treble clef, so trumpet etudes would be the way to go.

    For bass clef, then trombone etudes would be the way to go.

    If you play a bass trumpet in C, you can get orchestral excerpts transposed for "Basstrompete in C."

    Good luck!

    Thanks- that's what I've been doing for some time. I'm just tired of the same old stuff. I've been playing Arban's for forty-some years, and it, and I, have gotten a bit old with each other.
