2. The most egotistical and narcissistic of brass holes, who feel they must always be mean.
3. When it is played well, it is a beautifully sounding instrument which excels in Jazz and Marching style music.
4. Scrap metal. I'm referring to the players here, not the instrument.
Whilst trumpets are beautiful instruments, the people it attracts are not so. They will never admit to being wrong, and if you are a woodwind, expect crap to be thrown your way. They are often petty, immature, and are clearly over compensating for something. I suggest not paying any attention to them during band classes, as they will often be physically injuring each other, trying to pull rank and skill on you (This often fails in the skill department), and otherwise acting as the stereotypical idiotic teenage boy. (Even if they are female.)
They also seem to have some sort of personal vendetta against the clarinets, who often share parts. It might be something to do with them having the same concert pitch. (Bb)
2. An instrument that gets all the solos.
2. The trumpet got the solo because it sounded so cool and could be heard easily.
The trumpet, duh!
Oh, sorry dude. I didn't know you were a god.
Though the instrument generally has a range of two and a half octaves, many trumpet players extend their range "into the stratosphere", sometimes even above the High C.
The sound of the trumpet is noble and brilliant, and is capable of great power and energy, yet is also able to produce beautiful, sonorous melodies. The trumpet is prized for it's flexibility, dexterity, and power of sound.
There are several instruments that have developed from the trumpet, including the flugelhorn, cornet, and piccolo trumpet.
Some famous trumpet players include Adolph Herseth, Allen Vizzutti, Wynton Marsalis, Sergei Nakariakov, Maynard Ferguson, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Louis Armstrong.
"My lips are killing me, I've been practicing my trumpet for an hour and a half."
"That band's trumpet section is phenominal!"
Also, the first five letters spell "trump"
--That's the trumpet ego.
P2: yeah... he's such a screamer, it's awesome!
P1: if he keeps going like that he's going to be like Miles Davis
