The Renaissance was a time of many artistic forms and artists of all kinds were able to express themselves. During this time, the trumpet that was used was a single coil trumpet. It used interchangeable crooks and only allowed for one overtone at a time, as seen in the medieval times.

During the medieval time, the instrument transitioned from being solely an instrument used in war to an instrument used for musical entertainment. By the end of the medieval times and the beginning of the baroque era, it was considered a fully inducted musical instrument.

There were many versions of the trumpet that came about at this time. One of the most notable was the slide trumpet which was very similar to the trombone. Another example was a trumpet that consisted of a piece which was placed over the mouth in order to stop the air.
