From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Trumpets
    were of a great variety of forms, and were made of divers
    materials. Some were made of silver (Num. 10:2), and were used
    only by the priests in announcing the approach of festivals and
    in giving signals of war. Some were also made of rams' horns
    (Josh. 6:8). They were blown at special festivals, and to herald
    the arrival of special seasons (Lev. 23:24; 25:9; 1 Chr. 15:24;
    2 Chr. 29:27; Ps. 81:3; 98:6).
      "Trumpets" are among the symbols used in the Book of
    Revelation (Rev. 1:10; 8:2). (See HORN.)
