Because of its two windings and more conical bore, this instrument has more resistance and flexibility. Best suited for coloratura work, slurring, triple tonguing, and other technical performances. The tone is smooth and not as heroic or martial as that of the Bb trumpet. Available in three bore sizes (M, ML, L). The large bore model, having a more mellow and richer tone, is frequently used for melody playing

Pros: easy transition for trumpet player
Cons: like most Bach Strads (Chevys) a bit boring

Ideal choice for a Strad player. Very easy transition. Try a Bach 6 Cornet mouthpiece (used by Vincent Bach himself). Sounds very nice. Just do not expect romance. Like a Chevy; it starts, is reliable, and will get you there with little trouble.
I much prefer my Martin Committee cornet. It sounds and plays like a smoke filled Jazz bar a 2:00AM. You just might get lucky.
