There were several different types of Mayan trumpets. Some were made of clay and were relatively short, and wooden trumpets were much longer. [4] A wall painting dating from c. 775 CE found at the Bonampak ceremonial complex in the dense jungles of the Chiapas depicts twin trumpeters standing side by side in a 12- man orchestra. [5] This, and other artistic depictions of Mayan trumpeters depict the lips of the players being held very tightly over the mouthpiece, suggesting that the wooden trumpets were used to blow higher overtones . [6] While the use of clay trumpets gradually diminished, the use of wooden trumpets persisted. ‘Long thin trumpets of hollow wood with long twisted gourds at the ends’ still existed by the time Diego de Landa wrote his Relacion in 1566.
