There is often considerable confusion in the minds of first time buyers when it comes to cornet vs trumpet. In essence, there is no significant difference between a cornet and a trumpet from the standpoint of a student musician. One is no more "advanced" than the other. While the trumpet appears to be larger than the cornet, they are both the same size. The cornet merely has more bends in the tubing and thus appears shorter. In the hands of a beginning player of smaller stature, the cornet sometimes seems easier to handle because its center of gravity is closer to the body. The tone on both instruments is produced the same way and the fingerings on both are identical. There is no discernible difference in tone quality in the hands of a student musician. Many public school bands have a roughly equal mix of cornets and trumpets.While every effort is made to keep the following list of available instruments current, our inventory changes daily. All instruments listed are used unless designated as new.
