Hey guys, I`ve been playing trumpet for about 2 years now, and I`ve decided to get another instrument. I`m starting to get into jazz, and I`m wondering if I should get a cornet, another trumpet, or a flugelhorn.

Flugelhorn is next!!
But mean-while (saving to buy) try some mutes for your jazz, it`s cheaper and a whole new world of sounds....

i`m not for the cornet, so take the trumpet or flugelhorn. And first of all: try the mutes, they are great!

This discussion is retared!

Do you even know the difference between a Trumpet, a Cornet, and a Flugelhorn?

I suggest you listen to some recordings of each instrument before making a purchase.

I`m curious, what is the difference because i`m trying to find out for my music tech homework but it is very difficult to find out!

Best thing Katie , is just to listen to them, the difference you hear is the important one.

The flugal horn is a different instrument but understanding comes with the listening

Additionally if you plan to be involved in any kind of band brass or orchestral, check what there requirements are. For instance I moved from Trumpet to Cornet because the youth county band I joined required me to have a cornet in silver

If you`re joining a big band, or planning to, then get a flugel.
If you`re joining a brass band, marching band, or are planning to, then get a cornet.

But to be honest, if you havent needed to use even mutes yet, then I doubt you need a new instrument. You only really NEED a flugel if you`re playing in a pro big band. Cornets can be picked up cheaply for brass band use.

Remember if you`re just experimenting, theres loads of other things you could play. Like piccolo trumpets, different key trumpets (C,D, or E trumpets) , pocket trumpets...

...."because the youth county band I joined required me to have a cornet in silver"...

Wow! They actually specified the colour? Kinda cheeky, no? I always prefer brass colour because I think it looks more professional.

As for flugelhorns, well, life`s too short to worry about what if... etc. If the sound of the flugelhorn appeals to you, then go for it! Try as many instruments as you can. Enjoy yourself!

I play flug in my college marching band and let me tell ya, that thing has a pretty cool sound. Only problem is it`s heavier than a trumpet or a cornet, which sucks.
