Horn Review: This is the first Cornet I've ever owned, so my knowledge is limited. I have tried many cornets though; Yamaha, Bach, vintage Kings, and Kanstul. They were all to stuffy for me. This Getzen, though, is open and, in many ways, more flexible than any trumpet. The Getzen valves are, of course, impeccable. The Copper bell is full and rich in tone. Intonation is good, and the low D, D-flat, F-sharp, et. al. are actually a lot easier than it would seem with the dual triggers. I thought I would have trouble dealing with them, but they were far easier than I expected. With my Monette B6D mouthpiece it delivers all I could hope for in a cornet.
Plus this high end horn is actually affordable.
