#beginquote# They are BASICALLY the same, except that the cornet is conical bore and the trumpet is cylindrical bore. Conical means that the cornet gets gradually larger throught the bore (inside diameter) of the horn until the bell flare. Cylindrical means the bore stays the same size all the way through until the bell flare. Conical bore horns tend to have a mellower tonality. Cylindrical bore tend to be brighter and more piercing. Most marching bands use trumpets. Lots of concert bands use cornets because they blend better with other band instruments. From what I've seen orchestras use trumpets also. #endquote#
