The C trumpet I've gotten my hands on for this gig is a Callet C - should be a nice horn for it.

I have had a few c trumpets and have sold them all. I don't have perfect pitch, but I have pretty good relative pitch. My ears get confused on C, I am playing a note and hearing another (from what I am used to). I have to concentrate on doing it. For all the church work I do, transposing is easier for me. I have had to play C trumpet on a few gigs where there was a section, or the director wanted a certain sound. That's fine, I do it when I have to, but left to my own accord I'll play Bb and transpose.
borrowed a C trumpet many years ago for some church work - though it would be easier.
As with many of the previous comments, could not manage the head issues of playing a note and expecting a different sound. Have been transposing for 40 years -- much more comfortable for me.
