Well, you would certainly produce a more authentic trumpet sound on
trumpets than you would on cornets, even if the trumpets were played badly
by the cornetists.

BTW. Could someone enlighten me as to the accepted spelling of
"cornetist". Should it have 2 t's or 3 ("cornettist"). My spell checker
offers it both ways, which is surprising. I'm amazed it's in there at all.
It only objected to me using the plural. Maybe my spell checker thinks ONE
cornet is enough ;-)
