Is that a trumpet I hear or a flugel I hear.... agh, I can't decide!

    And then it turns out to be a cornet. D'oh!

    Has that happened to you?

    Happened to me on Woody Shaw's "Stepping Stones" album. Yeah, I haven't heard enough cornet playing, apparently. (and I don't own one, either...)

    This is not very surprising, since the cornet is built halfway between trumpet and flugelhorn ... Add differences in the sound depending on the choice of the mouthpiece: we can often hesitate! :think:

    True it's those Crumpet horns that are really difficult to distinguish

    And Flumpets that were made for Art Farmer with the only purpose of confusing the listener, I guess ! :D

    Yeah, what are we up to now?... First the Monette flumpet, then the Osmun corumpet, now Ogilbee has something called a Thumpet (I believe)... And I've also heard of frumpets...

    Gotta love those hybrid horns right?

    A violpet would probably need a leash and a muzzle... and the only sound would be barking!

    But there's even worse things: Imagine a trumcussion... oh, I hear that they exist already. They are called Bach Strads (with loose valves).
