Pros: Sound, valves
Cons: Absoloubtly none

This really is an incredible cornet
I play it in a brass band where they are very common and are a favourable option to a besson sovereign because of:
better tone
superior valves

Pros: Great rich tone, Great Valves
Cons: Trigger springs weakish

The tone on these is fantastic and the valves really move. However the triggers have weaker springs than other manufacturers and are therefore slower to come back in and the slides need constant maintainance, but if you can find the time to maintain them you will not find a better mass-produced cornet.
Obviously the "customs" such as Taylors will always have the edge in that they have been had made, but look at the costs. For your money you would be much bettter off with one of these to maintain them.
A prefferable option to the dated Besson Sovereigns.

Pros: intonation, solid construction.
Cons: heavy, very sluggish valves.

Three years ago our band bought eight of these cornets. As far as I'm concerned they are meant to be played by very strong players as they are large bore and heavy walled.
Everybody complains about the valves as they are very sluggish.
Maybe there is an oil out there that works with them, so far we hav'nt found it.

Review Date: 2/20/2008 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: None indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Open blowing, good intonation, good slotting and solid workmanship.
Cons: None.

Slotting easy and intonation very good -much like the old "round stamp" sov's. No "breaking in time" required. Valves excellent and free of production gunk (I find that Yamaha oil works best for me). About concern over weak trigger springs: They are quite light but, the compression on this cornet is much better than (my) old Sov and backpressure is probably a reason that the slides can be slow to move back. The slides themselves are very high quality and only need a drop of oil now and again.
The tone is a bit different from the traditional Bessons. Perhaps a bit lacking in overtones? I like it anyway.
