I used to be a pretty decent player but became an in-demand Keyboardist and haven't played for a while. I want to start playing trumpet again and primarily plan to add brass parts or solos to Jazz/Pop recordings that I produce. I think it might be easier for me to Solo (or just think) in the Key that I'm playing on keyboards. Especially if I'm playing out on Keys and want to solo on trumpet. As such I'm considering buying a C trumpet. The question is: Is a C trumpet just like a Bflat trumpet that just plays one step higher? Or are there other characteristics that will be significantly different for a C trumpet than a Bflat. How about the 'feel' of the C trumpet compared to the same model in a Bflat version. Any experience that could be shared here would be appreciated. Thanks!
