The Wild Thing Cornet presents the "Romance of the cornet" reflected in the cornets of the turn of the 20th century.

This cornet has the same gentle flowing curves that will remind you of the Grand Old Cornets of the past with one major exception: using today's technology and Flip Oakes' unique design, he has added a playing quality has never before been achieved in any cornet.

The Wild Thing Cornet will take you back to the days when cornets ruled and trumpets were fanfare instruments! Come and Hear the Difference!

The specially designed leadpipe and bell gives you fast response, flexibility and great intonation. "You won't believe how easy this horn is to play!"

You can go from ppp to fff effortlessly with absolute control.

The Wild Thing Cornet is also by far the most conical cornet made today which enhances the truest, traditional cornet sound.

It comes with 2 tuning slides with the same design and bore sizes as the trumpet. The only difference is in the length.

An extended length slide is included for playing in the extreme heat such as outdoors at concerts and festivals where you will need more tuning range without having to pull your slide out so far. This extra slide is ideal for this added advantage.

Pros: huge rich sound, ease of play, nice looks

This has to be the ultimate cornet, almost exactly the same as my mates monnet which cost over a grand more. This however is except the massive full sound it produces throughout the register up to over double c. once used to the fact you just need to blow, the ease of the instrument is unprecidented as is the perfect intonation.
The greatest cornet I've ever played by far
