The trumpet is one of the most recognizable instruments in music because of its unique sound and appearance. While the history of this brass instrument may date as far back as the 15th century, famous artists like Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis and Chet Baker have made it a mainstay in modern music. Tuned to B-flat, Bb trumpets are easily the most widely used trumpet because of their warm tone and ability to blend smoothly into the sound of larger groups.
