The Elkhart 100CR Bb 100 Series cornet is a superb brass instrument for beginners and students to practise on. For an affordable instrument, each part has been carefully designed to guarantee that the 100CR is not only easy to play, but plays well with great consistency.
The bore of the 100CR is .459", a size that is easy for students to get to grips with. The bell is designed using expressive and warm yellow brass, a resonant alloy that contributes to the cornet's bright and direct tone. The lead pipe is built using red brass, again contributing to the warmer, mellower timbre of the cornet. Not only that but red brass helps to prevent the onset of 'red rot', which can occur over time. Having said that, the 100CR is very simple to maintain.
The cornet is equipped with 1st and 3rd valve slide finger rings, enabling you to control the tuning with incredible accuracy across the tonal range.
The 100CR Bb 100 Series cornet is an excellent quality instrument that is suitable for players of any age or ability. Included with the cornet is a mouthpiece and lightweight case. For those who're beginning their musical journey, this wonderful instrument is a great place to start.
