    I'm sure somebody can help me, I've got a Trumpet part with the words "chrom.en FA" .
    I know this means the trumpet is in a particular pitch, but what pitch?

    In F. It's Fa as in 'Doh - re - mi - fah' (think Sound of Music!) and doh is C.

    Thanks Dave.
    I had a feeling it might be, but I didn't realise that you could get a Trumpet pitched in F.
    I'd only ever heard of Trumpets pitched in A, Bb, C and D

    Trumpets come in a variety of keys - A, Bb, C, D, Eb, E, F, G and sometimes others:D .

    The F trumpet was, at one stage, the primary trumpet used for orchestral playing. Nowadays, in this country, we tend to use the Bb trumpet for much of our playing, but you can often find C trumpets being used as well.
    If you are playing from a trumpet in F part you will need to transpose everything.
