In the world of orchestral playing and composition, the C trumpet reigns. The C trumpet is often used in correlation with the Bb trumpet. Overall, the C Trumpet is just a little smaller than a Bb trumpet and has a brighter tone. The size of the C trumpet makes it livelier than the warm tone of the Bb trumpet.

Due to the demand for both instruments in orchestral playing, a trumpet player will often play either the Bb or the C trumpet and transpose by sight when playing rather than keeping both alongside.

In general, transposing music on the C trumpet is the easiest of all keys. It is also usually learned after the Bb trumpet due to the difference in tonal quality and the more mature and advanced handling. Those looking to acquire a C trumpet understand and have mastered the Bb trumpet and know that transposition is a prerequisite and unavoidable.
