Trumpets have existed since ancient times. The first trumpets were animal horns (before the invention of metals). The first metal trumpets did not have valves and were limited in the variety of pitch in the sounds it could make. Trumpets began to be used in musical compositions in the 17th Century. The invention of trumpet valves in the 19th Century allowed for greater variety of pitch in one trumpet.
