    Hi I have a model C-125L Courtois horn , I believe it to be a cornet it's probably ten years old or better, can anyone please tell me which it is Trumpet or cornet, I've had a couple people thinking its a trumpet I'm all but certain its a cornet but I have no real info otherwise, i do know the bore differences but I'd like to know if anyone knows from the model number?

    Looks like a C Trumpet as opposed to a Bb Trumpet or Cornet.

    Without any reference numbers to use, I think that it is a trumpet in C. Go to Horn-U-Copia.net and scroll to the manufacturers name segment for more info.

    Whatever it is it's a beauty. Looks like C proportions. If the OP has a piano available and can play even minimally can't he figure out pretty easily if that's the case? Just for my own edification (I really should already know this) what are the steps he would go through to discern the instrument's key?

    This is supposed to be an intermediate (semi-pro) C trumpet.
    I don't think that Courtois makes this model any more.
    Normally the bore of Courtois C trps are .459
