Beautiful Cornet JP-371SW Bb
I love this horn. Looks beautiful in Silver and plays just as beautifully. Free blowing, slightly dark classic British Cornet sound, very nice fast valve action. Truly a professional level horn at a bargain price-point while comparable to quality instruments costing twice as much. I bought this mainly for British Brass Band work but I love it as much as my primary trumpet. Solid silver lead pipe designed by Smith-Watkins. Plays nicely, easily free blowing, continues to “speak” at ppp and yet sings at FFF. Overall great little horn. Capitol Music Gear was very helpful with this purchase and answered my questions in a very prompt, personal and thorough manner. The support I’ve received from them has been exceptional. (I called and a human being actually answered the phone!) The cornet arrived very nicely and protectively packaged and basically overnight. I highly recommend Capitol Music Gear, I will definitely buy from them in future.
