Hi all, first post here.
I'm in my first year teaching elementary school and the district is awesome. They provide instruments to any 4th grader who wants to join, and families rent themselves from 5th grade onward if they want to commit.
The district only owns cornets and that decision was made by the guy who had the job for 20 years or so. I never got to hear his reasoning behind cornets. The 5th graders rent trumpets from the music store so this is purely a 4th grade instrument. I have no opinion on the difference at that age because...4th graders haha. I'd rather teach proper technique than rely on the crutch of a "dark sound" which is the only thing I can think of as his reasoning.
The district has budgeted a few thousand dollars to replace old instruments and my main focus is on the cornets. That said, the Yamaha student cornet is over 700 bucks, while their trumpet is just over 600. Jupiter trumpets are in the 550 area. I'm looking to buy 4 student trumpets/cornets this ye... keep reading on reddit ➡
Recently i was informed that as long as I stayed in the brass band I am currently in, next year i will be moved up a group and become that groups regular Eb player as the current one is aging out and I have the most experience after him.
As a result i would like to refine my soprano playing, but was told the band doesn't have on I can borrow over the summer. This means I am in the market for an Eb cornet. I have been looking around at places in England that sell Eb cornets, as they are much cheaper there than in America, and am leaning toward one of Yamaha's, as the one they are currently loaning me is the same model and very affordable >$1000. Before I buy, I am curious of any superior yet also affordable soprano cornets or if there is somewhere in America that sells them at similar price.
I Recently found out that Bach makes a Stradivarius long model (also known as American or underslung) in addition to short model (also known as british or Shepard's crook) cornet. I have only ever seen long model cornets as vintage horns, typically a student instrument like a Reynolds medalist for example. Is there a market for professional grade long model cornets? I absolutely adore my medalist but i typically see short model horns used in settings that require a cornet.
Instead of giving already good players boosts they should focus promos more on players that could be fun/good if given stats. Even if the tactics aren't diverse it would give people different cards to play with instead of the same Neymar, Mbappe base gold cards.
Players like Zielinski or Bernardeschi but don't give them rubbish boosts. Make them viable alternatives to the higher rated base golds.
Right now I have James playing but haven’t enjoyed him as much. Would Cornet be an upgrade because of the higher shooting and 5 WF? He looks like a beast but he’s really cheap which is weird
I'm back again with another review since ya'll liked my last one on Banguero. This time it's another budget card in WR Cornet, who you can pick up for around 30-40k. He seems to be another one of those high shooting meh passing wingers like Orsic who seem to pop up every year, so I thought I'd try him out at striker to see how he holds up.
Here's the team I used him in, and I switched it around in game to a 41212 narrow, with Kluivert and Cornet as my strikers. I also used a sniper chem style on him and played in Division 6 and Division 5 rivals (since he got me promoted). Here's a rundown of his stats:
Pace (10/10) - He's lightning quick, and he definitely needs to be with everyone using shadows and anchors on their defenders these days. I decided to go with a sniper to boost his other stats, but I reckon taking him up to 99 pace with a hunter or engine could make him even better. 91 Stamina also means he doesn't lose that pace late o... keep reading on reddit ➡
Easy to fit into a team since I have storyline Aouar
I know he has low composure and 3 star skills. But looks like he’d be interesting with a sniper especially because of his 5 star weak foot and outside foot shot trait
Ojo con comprarlo en Steam porque el juego está muy roto, lleno de bugs. Hay escenas que no las podés lograr por fallas de paredes invisibles o crasheos del juego. Si lo compran por Steam no van a poder poner trucos como para pasar esas escenas ya que no deja modificar la app para activar los cheats.
I recently picked up an Eastman cornet as well as a Yamaha 14b4 cornet mpc, but it doesn’t quite fit right. When I bought my flugel there was a lot of info about taper sizes and what to buy, but I can’t seem to find much regarding cornets. Right now I’m just using some tape around the mouthpiece to make it fit better, but obviously this isn’t ideal. Would like to upgrade to a wick 4b mpc but wanted to make sure It would fit. Has anyone else come across similar issues? Thanks
I found a listing for a used "Bb York Cornet" in my city that I'm considering buying, and wondering if anyone has any words of caution or anything. It's listed for $125 CAD and includes two mouthpieces (sizes aren't listed), a cup mute and an older edition of the Arban's book. (Blue and green cover.) The seller says they have some flexibility in the price.
Based on the look of the case, and the Arban's edition, I'm thinking this horn is a few decades old, at least. The only thing I could find online for "York" instruments was a US company that closed down in 1971.
The seller says the horn works fine. (I asked if the valves stick.) Anything else I should check for if I meet the seller to check it out? Do you think the price is reasonable? Especially if I can get him down to $100, or closer to that? I'm guessing this would likely have been a student-level horn in its day.
I'm one of those many people that used to play trumpet in school more than a decade ago, and j... keep reading on reddit ➡
Early 00’s cartoonish pc car game. The visual is GTA2-style (top-down perspective) and you get eliminated if you end up out of the screen. Some characters name were Astro, Cabby and Cornet. Any help would be very appreciated.
I was hoping for some advice on good warm-up/cool-downs after practice or particularly rehearsals. I mostly play the cornet as I'm in two brass bands am particularly interested in cool-downs after rehearsal. For warm-up I typically play long notes between C and F# below the staff followed by lip slurs on different fingerings for both practice and rehearsals. If I do a cool-down at all it's usually just low tones. Any advice on how to finesse that would be appreciated.
I was at an antique store, and they have an Olds Ambassador cornet for US$130. I've never heard of the brand, and I wasn't able to try it out. Best I can tell from the serial number, 369xxx, it's from the 1960s. It's clearly seen better days. In your opinion, is it worth that much, or even having?
I play horn and trumpet, and never have tried out a cornet. I don't play professionally, more just for fun when I have the time now that I'm out of college. While I think it's important, whether something is a professional or student instrument doesn't matter a whole lot to me. I just like the idea of having lots of different instruments to play whenever.
Basically the title! I have been asked to play Flowerdale for an anniversary in July, and I need to start practicing soon. Which soprano cornets are good brands? And which size/brand mouthpiece are good matches?
Hey i just got him, and here’s a little review from me. I immediately tried him out. And guess what, turns out he’s pretty dope. Played him as an ss and cf (haven’t even tried him as rwf). It felt like playing messi and dembele at the same time lol. Was so disappointed for not getting mahrez but whatever, this guy made my day. I’m not saying that he’s consistent, but he left a good first impression. Whoever got him, try him out, who knows maybe he’s useful for you.
Hey guys, I could need some ruling help. Imagine the following situation. My Opponent is on bogels and has a dryad arbor equipped with several CMC 1 auras and a Daybreak Cornet. I blow everything with CMC 1 up with my blast zone and the cornet falls of. But what if my Opponent has two cornet equipped? Do they fulfil the criteria for each other? Thank you :)
Atal seems better but I'm afraid of the shooting difference in VSA
Cornet Microsystems is the manufacturer. Manufacturer's specifications:
I uploaded the video to YouTube because the Reddit uploader has murdered my patience in cold blood. It's an excerpt from my E+ copy of Claxtonola 40339 and I thought it's be cool to share.

The Ruby District was so pleasant this time of year. Say what you will about her morals or her flattering personality, but Flamewar knew how to run a gang, and that included keeping her territory in check.
It meant taking care of those you ruled over, it meant eliminating any rebellion before it grew, it meant reminding the city that this was Burnouts territory. Now there's a few ways to do that, of course, but she was going to go with the simplest option, the win-win for everyone involved. The polite, respectable option, maybe to change their tarnished reputation for the better.
Word goes out across the city, about a celebration tonight, in the Ruby District. There'd be good food, good drink, women and men for those into that, and most importantly, fights. The rules were simple: The truce was to be maintained. Differences set aside at the door, no fighting unless it was inside the ring. No killing your opponent, or anything the... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know this is not a cornet sub but I was thinking about getting a cornet just to have somthing else to play and was wondering what I should be prepared for.
I'm finding that when I fully depress a valve, I can hear a 'clunk'. Do I need to replace those felt pads that on top of the valve cap? And if so, are all felts the same; cornet or trumpet? Source?
I usually play trumpet (lightweight Bach Strad 72) but the local orchestra wanted me to play cornet on the last concert, so I borrowed a Bach Cornet from the local high school. My kids dinged the 3rd valve slide on my trumpet and it bothers me so much that I decided to practice on the cornet for the past 3 weeks and I just have to say...
There is no way that I would play the cornet as my main instrument. It's got a nice dark sound and all, but it just doesn't have the power of a trumpet. And if you don't have power as a trumpet player, THEN YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING AT ALL. (Forrest Gump voice) "And that's all I have to say about that."
