    One of the best pocket trumpets I've ever played was the Stomvi Pocket Forte... no difference to the long model forte. Awkward to hold, though.

    When learning multiple trumpets, key becomes an issue. There is quite a learning curve to the C, D, Eb, F, G and the Bb piccolo. All require time and attitude to begin to feel normal. There is a learning curve to all new instruments, and a pocket trumpet and a normal trumpet is going to be there. Response, resistance and sound will be different. You will adjust with to the the differences with practice.

    The OP is NOT talking about trumpets in different keys, only about a different wrap.

    Back in my Army band days when I was playing a lot, I got to a point where I was so dialed in to a particular horn, that messing around too much on someone else's horn could actually throw me off for a bit on my own, and my own Strad was the only horn I felt very comfortable on. I don't seem to have that issue as much anymore, which might be due to a couple of things. One, I play a trumpet that I don't believe has as many inherent quirks as the Bach Stradivarius design, and two, due to the fact that my job is no longer playing trumpet and hasn't been for a long time, I don't play enough to be finely tuned and dialed in to anything. Not like that anyway.

    As long as your remember to take it out of your pocket you'll be OK. Otherwise you don't need a mute.
