Review Date: 6/9/2007 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: None indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Free blowing superb intonation ex build quality great valves
Cons: none

These cornets are so well designed and made they put mass produced items in the shade. The first thing that impresses when you first play one is the ease of blowing. The way the cornet responds has to be experienced to be believed. Intonation across the whole register from low f# to g above c is spot on. It is easey to express yourself musically because of the excellent response the instrument gives and the confidence it builds in the player. You must try one before considering buying any other cornet.
