Besson BE2028 Prestige Cornet

The Besson BE2028 Prestige Cornet is the latest in the Prestige range. A free blowing instrument with the much sought after Besson sound, this is a cornet which allows full use of dynamics throughout the range without any loss of tonal quality. Note production requires less effort and the sound is even richer than before, achieving a full mellifluous tone.
The main tuning slide trigger will aid the performer in coping with any tuning or intonation discrepancies and the aesthetic appearance of the instrument is enhanced by many striking design features. The Prestige 2028 has an impressive range of colours and a centred tone a little more focused than the Sovereign. Retaining many of the playing characteristics of the old 921 and International models so beloved of top players during the 70s and 80s, it can also handle all the demands of today’s brass band repertoire.
A ‘must have’ item for any cornetist
