Has anyone got any views (good or bad) on the Cortois Chambord 106 Cornet ???
Since Peter and Roger haven't done it yet.....***rubs hands in glee**
This is an old forum topic on that cornet. It may help!!
Had a quick shot of one and it felt fine but still prefer a sov.
Think I'd try a smith watkins if i had the money although it probably wouldnt make me sound any better
I have p been playing the Courtois Chambord 106 for seven years. I can highly recommend it. It has a beautiful tone and you can really fill the instrument. I am extremely happy with it.
I used one for 18 months at a previous band and liked it a lot, they're very well made and good to play, you can really fill them. They feel heavy and well made, unlike some I've tried where the metal is thinner and seem to make the tone shrill. The only thing I ever heard against them is a guy who reckoned that they have issues with Wick mouthpieces, something to do with the way they fit in the leadpipe making 1st valve notes sharp :?: . Can't say I ever noticed it happening on the 10 we had.
I use a large-bore Sovereign now which is equally as good, but I did like the laquer finish on the Cortois better than silver.
