Pros: Free Blowing, Clean Slotting, Craftsmanship
Cons: None I've found yet..

Well, my silverplated Eclipse cornet with red brass bell arrived a week ago. Been trying it out in the job, and after passing it around to the guys in the section it was agreed to be a tasty little minx! I've found it as reliable as a trumpet , so responsive the notes appeared with a minimum of effort required compared to my Yammie Maestro. I use a Sparx 2 and this combined with the Eclipse produced a tone rich and full throughout the registers and for want of a better phrase, like melting chocolate! It really takes a lot of the effort out of my playing, leaving me free to concentrate on the sound I wish to convey. I don't think I'll be looking out for another cornet for a long time to come to be honest, I don't know enough about the technical end of things to start spouting about them so I'll just leave it at this: I saw it, held it, played it... LOVED it. In my opinion this cornet will satisfy the needs of the orchestral, military or brass-bander, a real all-rounder that just needs the personal touch from the player to blend into any setting. Try for yourself, you won't want to stop once you pick it up.
