Range

Range of the trumpet in C: F#3 – C6 (occasionally F6)

 

Low register
F#3 – F4

Middle register
(F#4, G4) A#4 – G5

Upper register
G#5 – C6 (F6)

As a rule the scale goes up to C6. Trumpet virtuosos also reach notes up to F6 and higher. The piercing quality of notes at this pitch is very rarely called for in orchestral literature, but very popular in jazz.
