    Can you tell us how long should be the pipe, if we want to mae the tubing in 1 piece (no joints, just bend the tube)?

    As to the total length, I'd just add up the lengths and tweak it to pitch. Sorry, I've never done that.

    Cryogenics! Shoot! I'm gonna make a horn outta ice! They play great but don't hold up in the summer. The demand should be off the hook!

    The latest ITG journal covered the correct length for a trumpet.
    I want to say 104 cm. See how that works out for a Bb trumpet. The mouth piece adds a few cm.
