Trumpet Detail Structure

The trumpet, used by the Greeks and Romans and later by royal families in Europe, was regarded as a symbol of triumph, heroism and solemnity. The straight trumpet was widely employed in the princely and ducal courts of Europe in the early 13th century, but the instrument was soon improved and the S-shaped trumpet was later introduced.

As late as the end of the 18th century, there were still crooks for different keys, but when the valves were invented in the 19th century, the valve trumpet became an important brass instrument of the symphony orchestra. The modern trumpet has 3 valves and its timbre is bright, brilliant, and penetrating. It can also produce a special humorous effect upon the addition of a mute.
