Cornett

Over the past decades, I have gained quite some knowledge on 16th and 17th century cornetts.

I have visited collections in Verona, Oxford, Bologna, Nuremberg, Linz, Braunsweig Hamburg and Augsburg, where I had the chance to play some original instruments as well as a chance to measure them up.

 

Aided by this knowledge and experience, I build the following types of this amazing windinstrument.

 

Descant cornett  in c                lowest note d'        A=440

Cornett              in g                lowest note a        A=440 and 465

 

All instruments are tuned in meantone.
