It’s interesting to work out whether these are books I’d recommend to people or books I regularly use. The ones I regularly use (Stamp, Clarke, Schlossberg etc) are, for the most part, committed to memory so they’re not on my stand, in fact some of them I’ve lost or have deteriorated to the point of being binned. Then there are books I’m currently working through as an interesting project, might not make it into my top 10 but are currently on my stand. My top 10 essential books would be
1) Arban
2)Schlossberg
3) Clarke
4) Stamp
5) Vizzutti technical book 1
6) Sachs Daily Fundamentals book
7) Sasche
8)Maggio
9) Chris Gekker Articulation book
10) Collins Lip Flexibility

I’ve already changed my mind!! Now can I leave out Charlier Etudes and Chicowitz red book?!? So I’ll remove the Vizzutti technical book 1 and the Maggio as I’m confident I have memorised the parts I need and reintroduce Charlier and Chicowitz. This is like picking your favourite child. We all have one but we’re not meant to say it out loud

I'm interpreting a "studies" book to be one primarily focused on development of technical skills. Based on that I've identified the books that are most useful to me right now and ranked them roughly in order of their impact on the quality of my playing.

1. Caruso’s Musical Calisthenics
2. Stamp’s Warm-ups and Studies
3. Clarke’s Technical Studies
4. Bai Lin’s Lip Flexibilities
5. Cichowicz’s Long Tone Studies
6. Arban’s Method
7. Schlossberg’s Daily Drills and Technical Studies
8. Gordon’s Daily Trumpet Routines
9. Belck’s Modern Flexibilities
10. Daniel’s Special Studies
