Standard Trumpet and Cornet Mouthpieces

As is generally known, the diameter of the shank of a cornet is smaller than that of a trumpet. Most Schilke models are available for both the trumpet and cornet. In general, a slightly larger cup and throat favors the cornet tone.

When ordering Schilke mouthpieces please indicate model nomenclature and whether a trumpet or cornet mouthpiece is desired. If this information is omitted, a trumpet mouthpiece will automatically be supplied.
