    Aside from Arban's and Clarke, are there any others?

    Saint-Jacome, Gatti, and a million others. :-)
    Charlier 36 Transcendental Etudes is one everybody should work through at some stage, in my opinion.

    There are loads of books of etudes, concert etudes, and solos.

    Of course, it does all depend on what one means by "advanced." For some it means being able to play 16 notes comfortably, for others it means being able to play the etudes at the back of the Arban's perfectly at the indicated metronome markings.

    The Schlossberg book has recently helped me with range and flexibility, after using the Arban's book almost exclusively for many years.

    I would recommend the Brandt and the Allen Vizutti books.

    Concone Lyrical Studies, Berdiev Etudes, Lovelock Trumpet Concerto (Australian), Herbert Clarke (all).

    Just for fun - check out "The Rafael Mendez Collection" - a Carl Fischer Publication.
