    Comments about Getzen 3850 Custom Series Bb Cornet:

    Getzen valves, so they are smooth and fast; lacquer finish makes for a visually stunning horn with copper bell; excellent build quality, not a single defect to be found. All mechanical items worked flawlessly. Roomy, well-built and lockable case holds horn, 3 mutes, 2 mouthpieces, rags, pencils, chromatic tuner, slide grease, vavle oil, and charts (2 nice compartments in the lid for music).
    If you need a pro-level horn for brass band work or just want a high-end shepherd's crook horn, give this one a long look.

    Comments about Getzen 3850 Custom Series Bb Cornet:

    This cornet is from Getzen's custom series of instruments and comes in either lacquer or silver plate. I have played both versions and both are equally great horns. The sliver-plated version is a bit more focused, but both have a wonderful cornet sound. Although this is one of the cheapest professional cornets on the market, it will easily hold its own with much more expensive cornets. The fit and finish is outstanding and the Getzen valves are nothing short of perfect. Some of the earlier models have 2 Amado waters keys, but the new version has 3, with the extra Amado key located in the leadpipe tube just prior to going into the #3 valve. This extra water key is a little hard to get to, but once one becomes use to it, it is no big deal and it will probably prevent the need to remove the main tuning slide to drain water. This horn is a .462 bore. I expected it to be a little stuffy; however, I was amazed at how open the horn felt to me. It is very easy to get around in the horn and it is extremely fun to play. As always, choosing the right mouthpiece (for you) is necessary. The only drawback to this horn may be its smaller bore size. If you are in a section with .470 cornets, this horn could feel a little small to you. I believe this horn is a great solo instrument and it should work very well in a concert band, or brass band. I highly recommend this horn.

    Comments about Getzen 3850 Custom Series Bb Cornet:

    Great mellow cornet sound. I've had a Getzen trumpet and Flugel for several years. This cornet has the same quiet and fast valve action as my other horns. The only thing I have trouble with is operating the third valve slide water key. You have to hold the trigger down to access the water key, which I am sure I will get used to soon. Great little horn that is fun to play.
