What they say

The Prestige 2028 cornet with its fine array of impressive tone colours and centred tone, complete with a main tuning slide trigger and dashing good looks is a stunningly good instrument.

It is probably the best cornet on the market at the moment because it is impressively engineered with a great specification which plays wonderfully.

It is a more focused and intense sound than the popular Sovereign cornet (BE928G) and responds to your wishes, however demanding they may be. It retains many of the playing characteristics of the old model 921 and Imperial Cornet so beloved by top players in the 70’s and 80’s but is also able to handle the demands of any of today’s modern repertoire.

As with all modern Besson instruments, the sensational valve action means no music will ever be too fast!
