The Besson Prestige 2028 Bb cornet, with its fine array of impressive tone colours and centred tone, unique main tuning slide trigger, and striking gold plated triggers, water keys, finger buttons, and top/bottom caps, this is a stunningly fantastic instrument. Designed and continually refined by today’s leading players, the Prestige cornet provides endless possibilities.
It is a more focused and intense sound than the popular Sovereign cornet (BE928G) and responds to your wishes, however demanding they may be. It retains many of the playing characteristics of the old model 921 and Imperial Cornet so beloved by top players in the 70’s and 80’s but is also able to handle the demands of any of today’s modern repertoire.
Finished in bright silver plate with gold plated accents and features main & third valve slide tuning triggers, a 4.88″ hand hammered yellow brass bell and 0.466″ bore. Supplied in a deluxe Besson hard case with optional heavyweight finger buttons/bottom caps, lyre, cleaning cloth and valve oil.
Also available in clear lacquer finish to order. We have a demo instrument available in store to play test.
