    Both of these approaches would be entirely clear, and would take only a small amount of repetition (for A0, A1, . . .) to become second nature.

    Good communication means making sure that what you said is "properly decoded" by the receiver. Granted there is little you can do at times, but when unambiguous nomenclature are assigned, you have great chance for success.

    But nordlandstrompet,

    What is written in your post as Bass C is a pedal tone (on the trompet).

    I don't think there is nearly as much dispute about what the C's are called . . . it's the notes between the C's that are causing arguments.

    I have a friend that hits double B (using a tuner to measure). It does not sound like he is actually playing it, rather squeaking into his trumpet.

    I take it that the 4 open notes He is playing are:
    1) High C, 2) Double High C, 3) Triple High C, 4) Triple High D

    I've never played a High C. 18 months ago I thought I had, as during my final practice routine when I'm warmed up I play open notes from C below the staff as far as can get. Most times I get to the limit of my range which is G just above the staff, sometimes I got the next open note which I assumed to be High C. However when I used a Korg tuner this highest open note turned out to be a concert Ab (Bb trumpet)

    Trumpet golfer: you are correct that the note you hit was a Bb, that is the next open not in the harmonic series. It's not in tune and kinda hard to play if you are used to playing that upper octave. Keep playing that note and someday you'll hit the high c.

    I agree with you, man. It's more of a sideshow type of thing to me. I can't play up there, but I can't swallow swords either. I get along just fine without either. I think the highest note I've ever run across written in a piece was an A above high C on a big band chart (on 4th part, no less!). I'm sure higher written music exists, but I haven't seen it.
