    […] I LOVE playing baroque trumpet with no holes.  Holes were not invented until the 20th century so there is absolutely nothing historic about the holes on baroque trumpets.  That being said, the intonation and accuracy of a modernized baroque trumpet is significantly better, and the sound is very similar, so nearly all baroque trumpeters use trumpets with either a 3 or 4 hole system.   I play the 4-hole system which has, in my opinion, more difficult fingering but better accuracy and intonation.  I also like that the 4-hole system trumpets are wound similarly to the trumpets of the baroque period; 3-hole system trumpets are wrapped tighter (easier to travel with as they fit in a normal trumpet case), and come apart quicker (better for discreetly emptying spit in a concert), but they do not look anything like trumpets made in the baroque period.  Click here to get a free 4-hole fingering chart.
