Mine is a high D, sometimes a high E, and once a high F.

Because that's what it is all about right? Playing high and loud? I don't care for it.

Well, I can usually play a high A or B flat if I'm warmed up sometimes high B and C come out too.

Thank you TrumpetGirl. Believe it or not I'm not big on the whole trumpet obsession with playing high either. I was just curious as to what everyone's range was. Obviously, if my range only goes to a high D, I don't spend all my time ( if any ) improving range. I was just curious.

Sadly, however, as stated by Walter M. Smith, author of the "Top Tones for the Trumpeter" method/studies book ( which I highly recommend for anyone trying to increase range or, more importantly, improve their tone),

"It is a sad fact that these days the demands made upon [a trumpeter] when he first enters the field of professional playing:-- and particularly by the somewhat appalling use of the upper register of the instrument... from high C up, which are found in modern orchestral compositions scattered about with the greatest freedom."


I strongly agree with Mr. Smith and TrumpetGirl, like I said I was just curious.

However, range is important for most jazz players

P.S. for any young trumpet players who's friends can play higher than them ( not outplay but play higher), don't worry about it, it's not all about range , although I will say that if you play in an orchestra like I do, it would be a good idea to be able to play to a high D because occasionally you will run across a first trumpet part that requires this.

My son plays trumpet and I just asked him what his highest note is that he can play and he said a D, and then I asked what the highest note ever was that he hit, and he said it was F. So it was just like yours!

I play piano, so there's no challenge in hitting high notes. lol. But I used to play clarinet, and I remember how we used to like to challenge ourselves in various ways and one way was to see how high of a note we can play. I can imagine it's even more of a challenge with a trumpet.

I believe it's good to want to challenge yourself and have fun with your music and talk about it with others! Good topic

Ah the old highest note thread. I've been working on high chops for a while now, and my highest note is double Eb, though i usually only have a double C (consistently at least). Still none of us compare to the greats who dabble in triple high range. It's all about air and aperture. I'm happy with my dub C for now.

I've played a double G before...but playing high doesn't make you a God. Infact, range is my worst aspect on trumpet. I'm mroe about technique and what not. My technical skills are actually quite surprising, it's fun stuff.

i have hit a G above high C before, but my range is consistent and usable up to D above high C.
range is overated.
i have never come across anthing higher than a D in the music i have to play in band.

I just started trupmet a few years ago, I think I can play maybe up to a high G (the next no-valve after E) or an A. It's harder for me to play higher notes on a 7c mouthpiece, I play on a 1 a/2c.
