Hi ! I've been trying to play the cornet for more than a year, I've got a cheap instrument with a Bach 6 mouthpiece without letter. I love the mellow sound of Chet Baker on his trumpet, this is just an example. What would be the best for me ? A decent trumpet with a Bach 5V mouthpiece or a flugelhorn ? My cornet doesn't sound really mellow, if you are a little bit deaf, it could sound cool. My cornet is an Eagletone. EAGLETONE - ECT-290L Cornets : eagletone.com What kind of sound can I get with this ? These are my cornet's characteristics : The Eagletone ECT-290L cornet is meant for advanced beginners to play at an accessible price. This is undoubtedly the best deal in the entry-level instruments category. Comes in a case. All Eagletone wind instruments are verified by our luthiers. - Bb - Lacquered brass - Bore: 11.73 mm - Bell: 119 mm Thanks.
