What is the difference between a piccolo trumpet and a pocket trumpet?

Last Update: 12/12/2013

A piccolo trumpet is physically smaller trumpet with less tubing than a normal Bb trumpet resulting in a pitched trumpet that is one octave higher. Typically, piccolo trumpets are keyed in Bb and A giving flexibilty in use for multiple orchestral settings. A pocket trumpet has the same tube length as a standard trumpet, but reduced in size.
