Fast and Dark

There are two main ways of playing cornet, we define them "British" and "American".

The first one is all about a mellow and dark sound, typical of brass bands: deep V shaped cups, depths are Shallow, Medium or Deep 

The second has a much brighter sound, very close to that of a trumpet but much more nimble and crispy.

These will use our range of cups available on trumpet, from A to Lead depths.

Both need a very short backbore that ensures the correct intonation for such a conical instrument.

Here's how our sizes compare to Bach sizes:

VL = Bach 1            17.40mm

L = Bach 1-1/4        17.20mm

ML = Bach 1-1/2      17.00mm

M = Bach 3            16.80mm

MS = Bach 5-7       16.60mm

S = Bach 10-1/2      16.40mm

VS = Bach 15          16.00mm

XS = Bach 17-18     15.60mm

Available in small and big shank, with 40 and 42 throats and Small, Medium and Large backbores to offer the perfect balance in terms of harmonic spread and back pressure level.
