Thanks to Normans for the following information:
Eb/D trumpets are smaller and brighter sounding still than C trumpets. There is a significant difference in the tone of an Eb/D trumpet compared to the Bb. Certain orchestral and solo works are typically performed on the instrument, such as the famous Haydn Trumpet Concerto in Eb. Eb/D trumpets are often equipped with interchangeable slides and sometimes different bells to change between each key.
The smallest member of the trumpet family. Piccolo trumpets are usually pitched in Bb and A, an octave above the Bb, with separate lead pipes to play in both keys. They usually also have a fourth valve which extends the range of the instrument down to a low F#. The sound of the Piccolo is much brighter and ‘zingier’ than the Bb and very distinctive. Music from the Baroque era is typically performed on the Piccolo. Famously, the piccolo was used in the instrumental section of Penny Lane by The Beatles.
