trumpets (and trombones, same family) are 3/4 cylindrical and 1/4 conical (from bell to first bend),
flugelhorns (all of them, from tuba to sopranino, whole family) 1/4 cylindrical and 3/4 conical (from bell to last valve),
cornet, like horns (same family?, whole conical?).
does anybody agree with me?

Further, (or, to further confuse....)
There is an explanation I read that the cornet is (on average) 2/3 conical and 1/3 cylindrical whilst
the trumpet is the reverse.
