Hi all, as my lessons are going well and I am playing with a small training group I am now in the market of buying my own cornet. I am currently borrowing one. On Tuesday I am travelling to look at a couple in shop and try out. I am going to see a Yamaha YCR2330 and an ex demo John Packer 371SW. The John Packer is at an excellent price but is advertised as a semi professional cornet with large bore which concerns me a bit as someone not that advanced. Maybe too free flowing etc. Will give it a try and consider a different mouthpiece for better resistance if needed however am very keen on the John Packer as its a fair bit cheaper. Just thought I would post up and see if anyone has any views. Thanks.
