THE Brass & Woodwind Music Shop in Southampton
As well as the hugely desirable Eclipse Trumpets, we now have Eclipse Bb Cornets in Stock.
Leigh McKinney, Eclipse designer, says :-
"The new Eclipse Large Bore Cornet was designed and developed over a period of 2 years. Many players from all areas of the band world were consulted and asked their own wants and needs in a newly developed cornet.
Of course "SOUND" is almost everything and we went to great lengths to ensure that we had what we feel is a fantastic traditional brass band sound with great warmth and colourful overtones, while still having excellent response, projection and cut which the player will certainly need also.
Tuning and security are of great importance also. We spent a very long time on fine tuning the instrument to get to the point we are now with what we feel is a great balance and secure slotting throughout all registers.
Also taken into account were the other makes and models that are currently out there in most brass band situations being played. We wanted our cornet to blend easily with the other cornets played and to enhance the section, this was very important and we now have an instrument which does exactly that.
Being British and proud of it, i wanted to be able to give our own British brass bands another choice of an instrument that i had made with them in mind, but also one that is actually made here in the UK."
