I picked up a German-made alto trumpet recently. Not a great instrument, but decent enough for why I got it, which was for low range development. The low open concert eflat and several notes below jump right out of it without any chop manipulation, so it’s great to warm up and down on. I went from a 1 1/4C to a Curry 5BC, so the pedal reg is a challenge.

Questions:

What kind of alto trumpet do you own? Do you play it regularly, and do you find that it helps in any way on the other horns?

So far, I’m finding that it does, possibly due to the greater resistance? Appreciate your thoughts, and curious why you keep the alto around.
