International Trumpet Guild

The International Trumpet Guild has spent a considerable amount of time, energy and research to bring this to our membership and to the trumpet-loving world. Please take some time to explore the new site. You will find many new features: a greatly expanded video library and reprints page, new Affiliate Chapter page, more photo/video capability and very soon, an online membership directory.

Raw Brass

Roger Smith started Raw Brass as a simple little website back in 1998. It was the internet's first comprehensively-categorized list of trumpet-related links. Eventually Raw Brass blazed new trails by offering online classifieds, a trumpet player forum, and the web's first trumpet photo archive. In 1999 Raw Brass produced its first prototype trumpet cases. Our second customer was the Canadian Brass, so we knew we were on to something.

Hyperphysics: the trumpet

All about the physics of the trumpet.


The Orchestra: A User's Manual is a free resource and will remain so. It still receives between 8,000 and 16,000 unique visits per month from all over the world. See the testimonials. Thanks to all the donations, I have been able to create this responsive re-design. But the movies and sound clips recorded in 2004 do show their age. I would really like to re-record everything and add many more techniques, especially for solo and ensemble writing. I estimate this will cost around £30,000.
