    Re: Just Got my First C Trumpet!

    Will post pics tomorrow.

    After spending the last two days playing solely on the C trumpet, I have noticed a marked improvement in my intonation on this horn.

    I'm finding it quite easy to play, and when I push it, boy can it strip the paint off the walls!

    I like the idea of the range of leadpipes available for me to put on this horn, thank you for pointing it out!

    Something that might help you that most of us use is a slight change in fingerings. When you play 4th space E finger it 1 & 2 and Eb is 2 & 3. Some Bachs also need 3rd space C fingered 2 & 3.

    People in the know recommend a slightly larger throat on the mouthpiece to make the slotting a bit "fuzzier". Much easier to bend notes that way!
