Our next group of trumpets are the vented trumpets
All instruments below are reproductions.
Our first instruments to show will be the unvented instruments, or
said another way, instruments with no finger holes.
We play a variety of instruments. We play unvented trumpets, vented trumpets, and modern instruments as well.
Putting vent holes, or finger holes in trumpets was not experimented with until well after 1750. The vented trumpets
below are all 20th century designs. Holes were added to help the horn play better in tune. To the believer in true
authenticity, this is not acceptable. We try and please the many different people in the audience. That is why we play
with and without vent holes. We believe there is enough room for all music lovers in this world.
