Cornet

Adaptable mouthpieces for musicians of all levels

It’s name means little horn.  The cornet finds its place in the brass band. Highly appreciated for its warm tone, it is widely used in England, the birthplace of the Brass Band culture. Its conical branch is its main asset differentiating it from the trumpet. The mouthpieces for the cornet are usually deeper, B Bach type with a V shape close to the one of the French Horn.

The cornet mouthpiece shank is shorter than the trumpet one , it is first studied for an overall sound for Brass Band players.

For the Cornet 3 blanks available :

  • Massive
  • Classic
  • Short shank

Once the blank chosen, a cup is associated

Available in 24K gold plated, silver plated or raw brass.
