Sound combinations

Generally the bass trumpet is used in combination with other trumpets and brass instruments, for example in octaves as the bottom trumpet part, as the fundamental note of a trumpet chord or as the highest voice together with trombones.

In Wagner the instrument is also required to play solo passages in all registers.

The enormous dynamic intensity of a note played fortissimo in the lower register corresponds roughly to three trumpets or four horns.
