Bugs Bower's Bop Duets

Neil Mueller's duet books, including Eight Famous Trumpet /Cornet Solos, and 13 Favorite Baroque Trumpet Works

Erik Veldkamp's series of Jazz Standards for Two Trumpets

Gary Ziek's Classical Virtuoso Duets

Bob Zottola's Challenging Duets

And if you want to keep your transposition chops fresh:
Gordon Mathie's Telemann for Two Transposing Trumpets

Edit: Forgot to add the excellent duets in Mel Broiles' Studies and Duets 1-3

Don't know your transposition or chop level, but playing Bach's Two Part Inventions is fun.

I agree. I have the edition for two transposing trumpets edited by Robert Haley ("15 Two-Part Inventions"). The two trumpets are each playing in different keys -- top line might be trumpet in F and bottom line might be trumpet in A, or something like that -- and that changes throughout each duet, which adds to the fun/challenge. Also, I think that the range goes up to concert D, so they definitely work out more than your transposition chops!

If you like practicing jazz style--try Eric Veldkamp's Jazz Standards for Two Trumpets (4 volumes). Very cool and fun!
