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.
Designed and continually refined by today’s leading players, the Prestige cornet provides endless possibilities.
It is a more focused and intense sound than the popular Sovereign cornet and responds to your wishes, however demanding they are.
It retains many of the playing characteristics of the old 921 and International Cornet so beloved by top players in the 70s and 80s, 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!
