Odyssey's new range of brass and woodwind instruments start here with the Symphonque Cornet, which has been carefully designed by trumpet virtuoso Alan Morrison and leading brass designer Peter Pollard. The included Denis Wick Heritage gives real pedigree to this fantastic instrument.
In order to keep tuning as accurate as possible on cornets, the method by which to do this is through trigger slides on valve 1 and 3. Generally found on professional trumpets, this method is extremely versatile and easy to use. The Odyssey cornet is no exception, making tuning and intonation extremely accessible through the triggers The Alan Morrison inspired leadpipe also offers a unique character to the instrument and allows for better projection and clarity.
Included with the Odyssey cornet is a very powerful and extremely responsive Denis Wick Heritage 4 Mouthpiece. Using old ideology with modern technology, what is left is a rich and exciting sound that responds perfectly in both the top and bottom registers regardless of volume. With its distinctive silver plated body and gold plated rim, it even looks as good as it plays.
The silver plating of the main instrument body contrasts splendidly against the gold of the valve tops and bottoms and water valves. This unique look gives it a lot of prestige as a professional instrument.
The Symphonique Cornet doesn't just come on its own. Included with this package is a hard foam gig bag, which has been canvas covered. This make transporting the instrument extremely easy, particularly through the use of the shoulder straps. As well as this, the Denis Wick Heritage 4 Mouthpiece has been put in for free along with gloves, a cleaning cloth and valve oil. This all makes your instrument easy to service and maintain.
