About the Instrument:

    Heralding the King with the sound of Trumpets dates all the way back to King Tutankhamun, 1500BC. With the addition of valves and other design improvements, the Trumpet remains one of the most versatile instruments. Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie led the modern charge of the Trumpet sound, with the Orchestral classical sound being led by virtuosos like Adolph “Bud” Herseth. Whether across a football field, concert hall, or latin dance floor, the Trumpet can easily be heard carrying over the rest of the band.
