Hi all, I'm a jazz student in Belgium, playing electric and double bass and recently got the urge to learn the trumpet/cornet (I'm leaning more towards cornet). But ofcourse I've got some questions. First of all whats the difference (except for sound ofcourse) between a trumpet and a cornet? Does silver and gold laquered instruments differ in sound, because I quite like silver look. Do trumpet types/brands change the sound significally? If so I would like to have the Miles Davis trumpet sound he had in Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants or early jazz sound with a cornet. Then what should I buy? I've got about 600-900 euros to spend and I'll probably order from Thomann. Ive been looking at this for trumpet: JUPITER JP-702 RL-F BB-TROMPETE - Belgium International Cyberstore or YAMAHA YTR-2335 S TROMPETE - Belgium International Cyberstore. And this for cornet YAMAHA YCR-2330 SII BB-KORNETT - Belgium International Cyberstore there is also a "longer model" YAMAHA YCR-2310 SII BB-KORNETT - Belgium International Cyberstore whats the difference between these two? Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance for your replies.
