Someone recently told me that Sovereign Cornets are one of the most difficult makes to play on and that the main reason that most brass bands play on them is just because Black Dyke play on them! I can't believe people would play on them just because of that. I have never played on anything other than a sovereign. Is it true that other instrument makes are a lot easier to play? Oh, and i've just thought of another question! Some of the trumpet players who play in our uni brass band moan about having to play cornets because they reckon they are more difficult to play - to get high notes on and stuff. Does anyone else think this?
