Long Model Cornets

Long Model Cornets are the preferred style of instrument for players that hail from the United States. The long or “American-wrap” cornet, often with a smaller bore and a brighter sound, is produced in a variety of different tubing wraps and is closer to a trumpet in appearance. The Shepherd’s Crook model is preferred by cornet traditionalists, and is the most popular style of Cornet design across Europe. They are generally used in concert bands in the United States, but have found little following in British-style brass and concert bands. Production was launched in the mid-20th Century by C.G.Conn and F.E.Olds and visually was nearly indistinguishable from a trumpet except that it had a receiver fashioned to accept cornet mouthpieces.
