    Perhaps this is as unscientific as can be, but when I blow through my Conn Circus Bore Cornet (.485) then my Conn Connstellation (.438) I cannot tell any difference in resistance. Mind that I am blowing throught the leadpipe sans mouthpiece. If bore is so important, shouldn't the difference be noticable? The Connstellation seems as free blowing as my Recording, however, the Recording does take more effort which I attribute to inefficient use of my wind vs. the accoustical dynamics of each horn.

    To be perfectly frank, I have never been hindered by the bore of any horn, whether large or small.

    Ok.
    Joke aside.
    Who has spotted which cornet is the 0.465" bore?

    Someone had to make a bone-headed comment, so I decided to trump anyone else. :lol:

    Now, my point. With wave action in a body of water, energy is transferred, but the water moves only to the extent of the amplitude of the wave itself (up and down, no lateral movement, otherwise known as current. The only exception to this is a tsunami, where the wave is caused by fast, violent current). Same if you take a rope and move the end up and down...the waves move in succession to one another, but the rope does not change location, just up and down movement (amplitude). So, if the buzz in the mouthpiece creates sound waves in the instrument to produce the sound, then why is bore such a big thing other than in the sound/tone of the horn itself? Isn't the buzz the voice, the vocal chord of the trumpet? If so, isn't each person's voice different on any given horn? :dontknow:

    Good guess! :cool:

    Yes it is the one on top.
    The difference of the outer diameter
    of the tuning slides is 0,127mm.
