Just curious!

I'm using, or plan to use:

-Hering, 40 progressive trumpet etudes
-Arban
-All of my middle school kid's trumpet parts for band, which aren't especially difficult but which give me an excuse to play with him
-Hickman's "100 lessons for comeback players"
-Voxman Easy Trumpet Duets (which are not all that easy)
-Schott Baroque Play-Along (have not tried yet.)
-Schirmer Easy to intermediate Trumpet Collection (have not tried yet.)

I'm saving all my old Telemann/Hummel stuff for later.

What do you have on your shelf?

I downloaded a set of scales/arpeggios and have arban's and the vizutti series. I am actually playing along with some of the kids' suzuki violin music on my c.

A related question: if I want to start my son on trumpet what would be a good "start-from-scratch" book, with tunes, basic scales, etc?

I was at a music store, looking for a book to get my 9 year old granddaughter started. I picked up a Rubank Elementary Method book. My wife looks at it and says that's really boring, a kid won't like that.

So she digs just a little deeper in the rack and comes up with "Accent on Achievement," by O'Reilly and Williams. My wife says, here, this is what will hold her interest. It progresses very nicely, with short scales, exercises, duets, lots of notations about basic nomenclature and terms, and some nice kids graphics.

Turns out I see this book mentioned in other posts regarding beginners.

I'm sure others will have opinions as well

I'm about fourteen years into my comeback. I have used several of the books you referenced above. Absolutely wore out the Hering progressive etudes -- much fun, challenging to play well. I brought the Voxman duets along for my lessons and that made for some instructive sessions with my teacher.

Since then I have added Schlossberg and Clarke based on reading insights and recommendations here. Added Rich Wiley's Scale Force for some additional "fun." I've tried a few of the play-along with CD products with limited success (be nice if you could slow down the tempo

Good stuff I guess. As a comeback player, you might want to ask yourself what it is that you don't do well but would like to. Be specific and focussed on the answer.

Start there.

Good luck.

Google a product called The Amazing Slow Downer it reduces the tempo while maintaining pitch. Great for learning solos and transcribing. I got it at Apple App Store
