Cornets


The cornet has a relatively lyrical, velvety and round sound and blends in harmoniously with the wind section. A distinction is made between the smaller Eb cornet and the larger Bb cornet. The cornet reaches its natural limits in height. Cornets only differ from trumpets in that they have a much narrower leadpipe, a more conical length and the more compact shape. The sound difference between the cornet and the trumpet is also small and lies roughly between the bright, radiant sound of the trumpet and the soft, full tone of the flugelhorn.
