What is a BB Trumpet and a C trumpet? And what is the differences?
Bb means that the trumpet is in the key of Bb...play a C on the trumpet and it sounds a Bb on the piano
TB means the trumpet has tuberculosis and i would stay away from it
When you play a C on a Bb horn it sounds like a Bb on a piano.
When you play a C on a C horn it sounds like a C on a piano.
They look a bit different from each other too.
My trumpet sounds like it has TB when I don't empty it. Should I be worried?
ahh ok so why stay away from TB trumpet?
That was a joke. There is no TB trumpet
There was also a thread a while ago on Bb vs. C (probably many, but I remember contributing to one)
Search through the threads and you can find a bunch of info, because there is more than just the key in the differences...
oh ok lol thanks then
TB is often an abreviation for tuba, a bigger, slower and dumber version of the cornet.
Hey, V.B. lighten up on the tubas. They are the rock solid foundation of any brass band, military type marching or concert band, or even any major orchestra. We trumpeters complain about having to count out 133 measures, only to be ready to play five notes. We are actually getting a lot of exposure compared to the tuba that only gets to play one or two notes. I HATE COUNTING OUT RESTS!!!!!!
