And I read again what you wrote : you're perfectly right, I should think before writing.
Bb : E becomes F#
A : E becomes G
Why do I seem to want to begin a 3rd WWW in this forum ?
Next time I post I will ATTEMPT to put my brain in gear. F# becomes G. An even easier key

Bach Stradivarius 43* (1974), Bach 3C Mouthpiece.
Getzen 896 Eterna Flugelhorn (1974), Curry 3FL Mouthpiece.
Plus a few other Bach, Getzen, Olds, Carol, and Besson horns.
Why are there A trumpets/cornets?
Some vintage cornets I have seen have some thing that lets you switch between Bb and A.
I wouldn't think it would be a tone thing (like from Bb to C), as the two keys aren't too far apart tubing wise, and it's only a half step.
Was old music commonly written in A?
Yamaha Xeno 8335S II Bb
Sonaré Tr8-CYS C
Holton/Leblanc/Yamaha C602RC Cornet
