Trumpets are more complex than they look at first glance, and there are lots of different measurements to factor in when you're picking out a new one for your collection. It's no secret that even the smallest difference in shape can have a huge impact on the way the trumpet will sound and how it will feel to play, but for many trumpeters, especially newcomers, it can be a bit tough to sift through all the info to figure out what matters most and what role each number plays in the grand scheme of things. Keeping that in mind, let's take a look at this selection of small/medium bore trumpets to get a sense for what they're like.

As it turns out, it's actually quite straightforward: a smaller bore produces an overall softer sound. That makes these trumpets solid options for musicians who prefer a gentler tone that's less harsh than a larger-bore trumpet would be. They're a great fit for second and third-chair trumpeters, or for backup instruments in smaller ensembles. And the softer voice also lends itself nicely to a smooth jazz sound. Of course, the bell and leadpipe shape are also key to the sound (many would say they're even more important, in fact), so be sure to take those into account as you look through your options - you'll find lots of different trumpet sizes here to choose from, all with small to medium-size bores.

For instance, if you like a smaller instrument, maybe the Getzen 940 Eterna Series Bb/A Piccolo Trumpet would be the right choice? Or, if you're looking for the customizability of interchangeable bells, check out the Bach ADE190 Stradivarius Artisan Series Eb/D Trumpet. For those who prefer European-style rotary valves, there are instruments such as the Scherzer Meister Johannes Rotary Valve Piccolo Trumpet and the Kanstul 1506 Series Rotary C Trumpet. These are just a few examples of small/medium bore trumpets, and there are plenty more here to see - so don't hesitate to dive in for a close look through the whole lineup!
