Hi, I currently play on a Besson Sovereign Cornet that I loan from a band. I have been looking into getting a new one, A: so that it is mine; and B: because it is old (not that I disagree with the fact that older instruments can have a nice tone), from the time when Besson 'threw' the cornets together ass a result of bands getting lottery funding. I use a 4B/2B mouthpiece and have previously played a Besson 600, which is what I own. Triggers are necessary though. If anyone can recommend a suitable new cornet, (preferably with a location to buy) it would be much appreciated.
