The Pocket Trumpet has become very popular in recent years, both as an alternative for a full sized instrument or a portable trumpet for musicians on the move. In terms of manufacturing it is very much a real instrument and produced in the same way as a standard Trumpet. It has the same length of tubing and is pitched in Bb, however by winding the tubing much more tightly it is reduced to a more compact overall size. They also have a more practical use which is for brass players going on holiday and looking for something that doesn’t take up too much space in their car or suitcase. They are the perfect instrument for practicing whilst away from home. As they use a standard Trumpet mouthpiece a player is able to take their normal mouthpiece with them to use whilst practicing on their Pocket instrument.
The sound of a Pocket Trumpet is similar to a full size instrument but a little thinner in tone. Some players like the sound of the Pocket Trumpet for use in jazz and funk music
