Clarín Real Spanish

Grove describes this as a type of Clarín: � �Real� Trumpets (Clarines, Trompetas) were usually vertical (not horizontal), the name indicating �real� in the sense of �full-length� resonators; but by c1750 �trompeta real� often meant �royal trumpet�.� Williams says: � �Real� does not always imply horizontal, early appearances of the term implied a �real trumpet�, i.e. one with longer resonators than regals.� Audsley mentions it but does not distinguish it from other types of Clarins.
