Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. True or false, trumpets are always pitched in B-flat.

Answer: False

Trumpets come in many pitches, the most common pitch for a trumpet is B-flat, however, many orchestral trumpeters have trumpets pitched in C, D, E-flat etc.
2. In the Baroque era, trumpeters were set apart from other musicians because of

Answer: their guild of trumpeters and kettledrummers

In the Baroque era, trumpeters formed a guild that provided them with privileges above and beyond that of other musicians. The guild had rules regulating who could play trumpet, where they could play, and for whom they could play for. The members guarded their rights jealously and were in constant conflict with unguilded trumpeters.
3. Which of these systems was not used in experimenting with producing a wider range of notes on the natural trumpet?

Answer: none of these

In the baroque era, trumpets were without keys, or valves. They were called 'natural trumpets.' The Haydn trumpet concerto was composed for the newly designed keyed trumpet, however, it could not compare to the valved trumpets which produced a much better sound.
4. Which of the following is NOT a trumpet manufacturer?

Answer: Gibson

Gibson are best known for making guitars.
5. In what way is a cornet's bore different from a trumpet's bore?

Answer: it's conical

The cornet's bore is conical or gets progressively larger in diameter (ie. conical- cone). A trumpet's bore is cylindrical -- it's the same diameter for most of the tubing until it flares out into a bell.
