Although the cornet is not a trumpet, it has very similar characteristics. The cornet is part of the brass family and it stands out aesthetically because of its conical shape. It is a compact instrument and produces a tone quality that is smooth and not as harsh and sharp as a trumpet.

Cornets are used in many instances such as concert bands, symphonies and most notably brass bands. With regards to composition, both the trumpet and the cornet are written interchangeably in Bb and can attain the same pitch. The main difference is the timbre, or quality of sound.

While the trumpet will take over the fanfare parts within an orchestral piece or band piece, the cornet will be added for more melodic lines. Although the swing era adopted the trumpet as a principal instrument, old style jazz preferred the cornet. You will see a preference for the coronet in British-style concert bands as well.
