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
L = Bach 1-1/4
ML = Bach 1-1/2
M = Bach 3
MS = Bach 5-7
S = Bach 10-1/2
VS = Bach 15
XS = Bach 17-18
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.
