The modern C trumpet is a configuration of cylindrical and conical brass tubing that is folded twice into a rectangular shape much like that of the B-flat trumpet. The C trumpet is 4 feet in length and sounds at concert pitch, one step higher than the B-flat trumpet (the B-flat trumpet is about 4 and a half feet long) (Grove's 213).
