I myself prefer Trumpet to Cornet. For me, it's shiny penetrating sound is facinating. I've played Trumpet for many years and certainly my years playing Lead Trumpet in the Fife Youth Jazz Orchestra have probably biast my opinion! :wink: However, most Brass Band enthusiasts prefer the sound of the cornet and most HATE the sound of the Trumpet, that is, the people who I have spoke to about it. Just wondering what you prefer and why?
