The E-flat Soprano Cornet is a small soprano/sopranino cornet pitched a fourth above the Bb cornet.
The soprano cornet is a brass musical instrument, very similar to the standard Bb cornet, it too is a transposing instrument, but pitched higher, in Eb. A single soprano cornet is usually seen in brass bands and silver bands and can often be found playing lead or descant parts in ensembles.
With a luscious silver-plated brass body, offset with gold lacquered parts, including the slide, Monel valves, bottom and top caps, finger buttons and water keys, the aesthetics of the 'Eb' Soprano Cornet from the Odyssey Symphonique Series speak for themselves.
A real eye catcher without doubt, but it’s also the performance to cost ratio that make this beautiful soprano cornet a winner. Players from students to seriously professional musicians have commented on the excellent response and it has been designed to provide comfort and security when performing in the high register, while maintaining a beautiful warm sound in any range - with superb intonation. As with all Odyssey instruments only the highest quality materials are chosen in the construction.
With all the characteristics associated with a soprano cornet including the adjustable tuning lead pipe and the 3rd valve throw, the Odyssey Symphonique 'Eb' Soprano Cornet is lightweight and extremely comfortable to play.
Luxurious appointments also include a mouthpiece from a series hand-built to an extremely high standard by Denis Wick and regarded by musicians as arguably the world’s finest. With meticulous attention paid to the rims for comfort and consistency, each mouthpiece, with beautiful and extremely hard-wearing silver and gold plating, delivers a pure honey sweet tone with a rich, mellow voice that has a colourful role in brass bands. Punching dynamics that sit in the higher register add a new dimension when playing obbligato over the top of a musical arrangement.
As a company producing some of the world’s finest brasswind instruments, Odyssey recognise the fact that protection whilst travelling with a delicate instrument is paramount. To ensure players can maintain a high standard with this instrument, Odyssey has included gloves and a cleaning cloth, whilst a high quality, plush lined, canvas covered case with shoulder straps takes all the worry out of commuting with such a delicate instrument.
