    Robin, as far as I know some people call High C also Top C...which seems to be also a "trumpeter" term as for some of us these seems to be the top of the sky ROFL

    Robin,

    Thanks for the clarification and the web page link. This does seem to make much more sense.

    Okay so I think it goes:

    - Middle C - Because it is between the bass and treble cleff.

    - Tuning C - Also known as C without a name.

    - High C

    - Double C - Also known as Super C.

    Thanks for the help everyone, I think I understand this now.
