Surprising brilliance

I play in a brass band in East Sussex alongside experienced players with higher end cornets who listen to, and look upon, this beautiful instrument with envy. I bought the lacquered version last year and it really does sound amazing. It gives a lovely, rich, mellow sound, and is relatively free blowing providing easy reach of upper register notes. The valves spring reassuringly quickly, and overall this is simply a brilliant instrument.

Great Value

I bought this used and it’s great to play. For the price, new or used, it’s a bargain and I doubt I’ll be needing an upgrade for a good while. The supplied case and mouthpiece are also spot on.

Outstanding Cornet

This cornet is the best cornet I have ever played. I have owned two professional cornets and sold them as this is the best out of them all. The tone is deep and dark. The valves work perfectly. Do not discount this cornet because it is priced at the lower end of the market. Best cornet buy I have ever owned. Fantastic instrument.

Fantastic!

I absolutely love the sound quality of this cornet with the Smith Watkins leadpipe. I am in my mid-50s and play 3rd cornet in a local brass band. Already, as a lower intermediate player I am achieving a tone and a range that I have never managed before on other instruments. Thank you so much John Packer. I would throughly recommend this fantastic instrument.

I'm Impressed!!

Had been looking for a cornet and seen a few new and pre-owned that I liked. Hadn't heard of this brand until recently when a fellow player bought it. This is a model or two below his but for the price I couldn't pass it up. It plays beautifully. Not even sure I'll replace the original mouthpiece. I WILL recommend this to anyone who ask.
