FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE ....... Sound files for Bb Trumpet and Cornet ......... Please use good headphones, etc.

     Trumpet and Cornet files below were recorded in a bright sounding hall. Recording conditions were held constant.
     Not controlled were warmup effects, so small temperature-related pitch differences may be heard amongst the files.
  The added stability of mouthpieces from Brasswind Research allows our designer Robert Love to record these files
     despite having minor facial paralysis that resulted from an auto accident many years ago. You could sound even better!

:  Various tunes as appropriate for the particular model featured. They may take a few seconds to load.
