    Generally, how many trumpets usually make a highschool honor band?

    My sis played tuba in the honor band two years ago, and she figures there were about 60 trumpets. She jokes alot, and I'm not sure if she's serious. There were 14 tubas, and 12 oboes she knows for sure though.:lol: And this one kid from school said there was 40 trumpets last year, but he might of said 14, i'm not sure.

    Anyways, I'm just wondering how many trumpets generally make honor band? How can there be so many, because I never noticed so many at my sister's honor band concert, though I payed alot of attention to the tubas. there was alot.

    Wow. That's a lot of trumpets.

    The Manitoba Senior Honor Band had something like twelve trumpets, maybe ten. Americans like to go big or go home, I guess.
