    If you want even bigger you can get away with using a Wick 2Fl (Flugel) you'll need to have the shank 'shaved' and have good tuning slide between the ears but has been done. Huge sound great for back row.

    My guess would be a Wick 1X - currently only available in the Heavytop configuration (although am trying to persuade Denis to try a regular version).
    As for obtaining one - should be available through any Wick stockist

    Schilke have two cornet mouthpieces based on the trumpet models 22 & 24. Rim diameters are 18.03mm and 18.29mm. No information regarding cup depth, throat and backbore. Available from Mouthpiece Express as well as many other makes/models.

    Although the rim diameters on the biggest Schilkes are huge, they are relatively shallow. Most of the older models of Schilke cornet 'pieces are not really cornet mouthpieces at all, at least not in the way that a brass-bander would recognise them. They are to all intents and purposes trumpet mouthpieces with a cornet shank.

    Schilke do now offer a newer range of cornet mouthpieces with a more traditional deep cup profile, aimed at the brass band market, however they are horrifically expensive.
