Configured like a professional cornet, the BCR-1230 offers playability, reliability and affordability for a student or school band program. The yellow brass bell with Shepherd’s crook provides a warm, colorful tone. It has a fixed 1st valve saddle and 3rd slide ring to encourage proper habits for correcting intonation tendencies. Smaller and more compact than a trumpet, the cornet is more comfortable to handle for a young student. The BCR-1230 Cornet is an excellent option for the beginner in developing a strong foundation in brass concepts. 

Silver plating is a richer looking finish. Because it is thinner compared to a lacquer finish, the sound is more responsive and resonant with added brilliance and better overall projection. More care is required to maintain a silver finish. Silver plating is more expensive and usually found on professional level cornets. Preferred by traditionalists, the Shepherd’s crook bell bend on the BCR-1230 offers a more characteristic cornet timbre which is rich and mellow.
