BE927 Sovereign Cornet

With its medium size bore and smaller bell size than its counterpart, the BE928, the BE927 Cornet is less penetrating and dark. The BE927 possesses a sound that blends easily with a woodwind section, making it well suited for the concert band where that type of sound is required.

Review Date: 5/29/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: None indicated | Rating: 7 

Pros: Lovely cornet tone
Cons: Stuffy, particulary in upper register

This cornet has a lovely archetypal cornet tone, even though it is described as being less dark than the 928. It however is stuffy with my usual mouthpiece (I like Bach mouthpieces), and is very stuffy in the upper register. The upper register is harder to produce than on the 928 for this reason. I play this cornet because of its sound, but I also own a 184ML Bach Stradivarius. Playability wise, there is no competition, the Bach is simply twice as good, but I just love that Sovereign sound!
