As you probably know, I play a 4-hole system  baroque trumpet (you can download the 4-hole system baroque trumpet fingering chart here).  Other 4-hole baroque trumpeters include Caleb Hudson, John ThiessenCrispian Steele-Perkins, to name a few.  Some great 3-hole baroque trumpeters include Nicholas Edlund, Friedemann Immer and more.  Of course, one of the greatest NO HOLE (a.k.a. REAL DEAL) natural trumpet players is Jean Francois Madeuf (definitely check out his recording of Brandenburg 2 here).  This list is incomplete so please leave the name of your favorite baroque trumpeters in the comments below.

If you haven’t already, check out this video of me and Caleb playing an excerpt from Bach’s Easter Oratorio on baroque trumpet (4-hole system).  We play the same excerpt on piccolo trumpet first so you can hear the difference. Enjoy!
