CarolBrass Cornets are rapidly gaining a reputation for offering excellent quality at surprisingly affordable prices.
CarolBrass Cornets are notable for being easy to play and their excellent intonation. From the CTR-3880-GSS upwards the valve caps are individually weighted for optimum response. With these cornets there is no more worry about playing above the stave, even with a deep mouthpiece the high range is unbelievably easy (not magic but close)!
We have found the whole cornet range to be very responsive to mouthpiece choice – for wind/concert band and orchestral playing a trumpet style mouthpiece produces a sound that can compete with a mixed section of trumpets and cornets; a traditional deep cornet mouthpiece will produce a tone suitable for brass band and solo playing without compromising range.
We stock a large range of CarolBrass cornets which are available to try in the shop. If you want to order your own specification of CarolBrass cornet head over to Carol Custom Brass where you’ll be a few clicks away from your dream horn!
Custom ordered instruments typically take about 12 weeks to arrive. With this option the customer can specify the trumpet they want, right down to the finish, water keys and even finger rings or hooks.
