    I'm flushed with success at having just put together an echo cornet (details of this epic task are at http://freespace.virgin.net/andy.callard/EchoCornet.htm ). My question is, now that I've played Alpine Echoes through more times than I can count, what other little gems have been writtten for this instrument?
    :D

    I've always wondered what an echo cornet was! It looks fantastic - can't wait to get onto a pc where I'll be able to hear it. I'm so impressed you built your own instrument, I think I'd be limited to making my own Hosaphone(TM) :wink:

    Ummm... no idea about what else you can play on one, though. Sorry :(

    Dont know about other pieces for the echo cornet, but I have one and it's a gem of an instrument... :D No doubt I'll be writing a new piece for it in the not too distant future

    :)

    My teacher has one of them sovreign echo cornets, they're nice, and they eliminate the need for cumbersome mutes if you blow to the right effect with the 4th valve down
