Started with cornet and now after nine years I have started to play trumpet too
Trumpet all the way.
It was often said that you could pick out the trumpet players who started on cornet (Maurice Murphy springs to mind).
Then somebody needs to unsay that.
Trumpet - euphonium - trumpet - cornet - trumpet - flugelhorn. Mostly trumpet (35+ years), couple of years on euph during my teens, couple on cornet in early 20s (though still play every so often), had the flugelhorn since January.
Is the question meant to work out what is a good thing to do, or just to get info for a survey or something I wonder? Will there be a graph?
Cornet as a kid because it was "expendable", 6th-8th grades. Trumpet thereafter to today.
Violin first for five years, meanwhile also played my brother's cornet because it was there. Moved and took up French Horn because I liked the timbre. Meanwhile, played trumpet in marching band and halftime shows. Played French Horn symphonically with local symphony until I graduated from college, still playing trumpet whenever somebody needed an extra one. After graduation, got a job in a band singing and playing trumpet. Bought and sold numerous trumpets, added flugels to the mix, (currently waiting for my 5th flugel) bought some nicer cornets in the last couple of years due to this forum. Piccolo trumpets.... I have had three, wish I hadn't sold the Selmer years ago, but since I wasn't playing it at the time and wanted cash....
1998-present dabble (NOT double) in trombone, french horn etc.
