    I'm with Richard III, record it. Play Mary Had a Little Lamb or The Blue Bells of Scotland or some other familiar tune, put in the right key for the double C and prove it.

    Confucius say...

    A good player can play high notes because he is good. He is not good because he can play high notes.

    Why write lol on everything, outkastah? If you are laughing out loud with every post why should anyone take you seriously?

    Even a video is not proof. Cubase can change pitch without changing speed. It is part of my daily routine!

    Hello,
    I only want to test the incredible patience of Rowuk regarding this absurd thread and to what extend we can go before he deletes.
    "I am ten, I play piano, violin, oboe, basson,flute, french horn, trombone, clarinet. I have composed 10 symphonies, 6 opéras and do not remember how many other little things. Do you think it will be bad to my trumpet playing?

    To be a moderator really needs a lot of self control!
    Cheers!

    Finally somebody that really understands me!

    Unfortunately you need a history lesson. WAM only wrote one group of pieces with anything resembling a real trumpet part - his Divertimenti for winds. Essentially baroque treatment and C and D trumpets at the same time. The highest note is a high concert C. Everything else in his literature was soprano and alto tympani only going up to concert G or A. He even messed up Händels Messiah by wimping the trumpet part out and adding horns!
