Those, my friend, are really hard questions to answer. When "music" and "deaf" comes together, I think of Beethoven. He was deaf too. But he made his music IN HIS HEAD, composed it, and conducted it. Anyways, to play any instrument, deaf or not, is really hard. I cannot compare the trumpet with another instrument, really. At least for the second question, the best mouthpiece is a Vincent Bach 3C mouthpiece. But all in all, to play the trumpet, trombone, french horn, etc, etc, is hard. But under your circumstances, it would be much harder to get used to it. But I can't stop you from trying. So go ahead and see for yourself. Are you partially deaf or completely deaf?

Oh well,

I'm profoundly deaf and i got French Horn, 2 Trombone and Euphonium, Bass clarinet. but Bass clarinet is from Gear4music in York, (UK) is not good.

I assume Bach 3C better than 7C or small mouthpiece but 3C is big than 7C correct?

Thank you for help info.

Yes, a 3c is bigger than a 7c, but for any trumpet a 3c will give you a well-rounded, bright but not too dark tone (which is the epitome of sound). As for the other part, it would take A LOT of work to be able to play trumpet (especially in the condition you specified). But I believe in you. If you can believe in yourself and have a strong work ethic, you could pull it off. It also might help you to listen better because when you play trumpet, you are constantly your own judge of whether you sound good, in tune and playing the parts to perfection.

Best of luck to you in your music career!

Best regards, belltrumpetplayer19

Yes trumpet is easy to play once you give it a few practices. I have a 7c mouthpiece & it seems a bit small at times so I might get a bigger mouthpiece as well.

The trumpet is a lot of fun & one of the loudest instruments of all.

It can help if you buy a mute for it. I have two. One extremely quiet & one a bit louder.

You'll need a couple of drops of valve oil to stop the keys sticking, so make sure you get a bottle of that as well.

Trumpets can be taken to pieces easily & washed in water so they are easy to keep clean.

It also might help to get a trumpet stand to place it on.

Good luck & have a lot of fun!

"At least for the second question, the best mouthpiece is a Vincent Bach 3C mouthpiece"

really??.....NO dont be silly! if it was the best mouthpiece why do other people play on others? yeah its a very good all round MP but there is no 'best' mouthpiece, think of a mouthpiece as a shoe, just because you have size 8 shoes doesnt mean they will fit me....

I know players who have played a 7C all there life and are very good because it works for them, your best bet with a mouthpiece if your a beginner stick with the one you've got or pick up a 7C, or maybe something bigger because you also play bone and eugh I recommend you go down to a brass shop and try them all out and pick the one that feels the best

size 5c mouth piece is better to use then a 7c and for trumpet players the smaller the mouth piece the better but 7c might be good for a beginner

did you not read what I wrote?...

people use a 7C to start with because its slap bang in the middle of the mouthpiece scale!
so when you go to specialise in an area of music, shallow- lead playing - deep classical/ mallow jazz you wont find it to difficult to change

Yes a 7c is the mouthpiece people start off, but about the 3c that was just my opinion. As the player will improve, he will be able to have a variety of mouthpiece sizes (a 3c is mostly for band and orchestral band playing, and a smaller mouthpiece is mostly for marching band/jazz band). I, personally, believe that a 3c is better to start off with because it will give him the ability to have A LOT of flexibility in the mid to low range. It's just my opinion.
