Trumpets in the Bible

According to Easton's Bible Dictionary, trumpets in the Bible were of a great variety of forms and were made of various materials. Some were made of silver (Num. 10:2), and were used only by the priests, announcing the approach of festivals and in giving signals of war. Some were also made of rams' horns (Josh. 6:8). These were blown at special festivals and to herald the arrival of special seasons (Lev. 23:24; 25:9; 1 Chr. 15:24; 2 Chr. 29:27; Ps. 81:3; 98:6). This type of trumpet, the shofar is still blown today in Jewish services on Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur.


"Trumpets" are among the symbols used in the Book of Revelation (Rev. 1:10; 8:2). (See Horn.)

Trumpet (472 words)
The modern trumpet has three valves and a bore that is partly cylindrical, partly conical.
Another relative of the trumpet is the flugelhorn, sometimes dubbed the "valved bugle".
The length to add for the three valve intervals is calculated by using the fact that the frequency of an air column is inversely proportional to length.
