HI and THANKS to the authors. HOWEVER, I have a problem. What is meant by " It is usually pitched in 8' C or 9' B♭ today " I have a doctoral degree in conducting and teach ensembles, theory and skills, and have no idea. I think it's specific brass playing terminology. Can you describe this, or provide reference to pitch number. Int'l Acoustic Society would be best, where middle C is C4.
Thorough overhaul and revision, replete with images of piston and rotary valved bass trumpets in C and B♭. Ed_Solomon 16:05, 29 July 2005 (UTC)
This page needs information and ranges (beginners, easy, common difficulty and professional ranges) for writing/composing for this instrument.~lvb~
Wagner's bass trumpet
- It would be worthwhile to pick out one notable example. As you know, the Ring is almost 24 hours of music, and in a heavy orchestration with a bloated brass section it can be tough for the average listener to discern a bass trumpet from a bass Wagner tuba, regular tuba, bass trombone, horn in its low range, etc. Willi Gers07 (talk) 17:44, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
The "Friends & Relations: The Bass Trumpet" doesn't work. I'd delete it, but maybe someone wants to try fixing it first if the page has just moved... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:56, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
