    We call those Eb trumpets, but they are pretty rarely used. Haydn and Hummel work just fine on Bb trumpets, and in the orchestra we usually use C trumpets and/or piccolo for the Eb parts.

    Eb (mi bémol) cornets ("soprano cornets") are used in British style brass bands : Their sound floats above the orchestra.
