    hi all,

    i play trumpet on a bach 7c and cornet on a besson 4b, and i find it much easier to play on the bach. because i swap between trumpet and cornet a lot , i struggle to play as well as i do on the bach than on the besson 4c.

    is there a cornet mouthpiece that is similar to the bach? or any advice

    i have tried to play trumpet on my cornet mouthpiece with an adapter.

    Then why not try the obvious? A VB 7c cornet mouthpiece? :confused:

    Like our noble knower of all things said you could buy a bach mouthpiece for cornet. However in my experience you end up sounding very trumpetty, likewise if u use a cornet mouthpiece in a trumpet you often get a darker sound..... not sure why you're finding changing between 2 comparitively similar mouthpieces so difficult..... I use a bach 1 and 1/4 c on trumpet and a wick 2 on flugel, a wick 4b on cornet and a wick 2 on tenor horn and the tenor horn is the only one that takes any adjustment. Maybe you should try a bigger trumpet mouthpiece to help. My old teacher at uni sang the praises of a 1 and 1/4c and i have to say i've stuck with it.Would be less different to your sensitive chops, cos obviously mine are made of leather... or wood?;)
