Bass clef instruments do not transpose. Trumpets – re-write the parts in E. Horn in F – re-write the part in A.

Or – for ten bucks – download Finale NOTEPAD. www.makemusic.com Enter your string parts. Then add new parts fothe brass, make it a transposing score, and copy/paste the strings parts into the newly-created brass parts – the transposition gets DONE for you. You really need to learn how to use this- the time you spend up front learning, will be paid back a thousand-fold in the future!
