However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Reference for Brass Bands

Besson is the brand name most associated with brass band communities. The commitment towards their research and development is demonstrated through the constant improvement of existing models, to better cope with the ever-changing demands and styles of the modern day composer and performer.

Prestige Cornet

The Prestige Cornet is said to be continually developed by today's leading player's, ensuring endless possibilities for all. This model has a much more focused and intense sound than Besson's Sovereign cornet and is capable of responding to the most demanding ambitions. Despite this difference the Prestige does still have many of the same playing characteristics as the old 921 model, loved by professionals in the 70's and 80's. Just like other modern Besson instruments this Prestige has advanced valve action which means no music will be too fast for it.

Yellow Brass Bell

Yellow Brass is commonly used as the base metal for brass instruments. A standard mix of 70 percent copper and 30 percent zinc helps to provide a focused sound with a solid core, produced with very little resistance.


Its array of tonal colours and centered tone make this cornet stand out from the rest. As well as this the prestige features a unique main tuning slide, shepherd's crook, gold plated finger buttons, caps, triggers and water keys. A 4.88” hand-hammered, yellow brass bell and clear lacquer body both finish off the impressive design.

Everything You Need

The Besson Prestige Cornet comes with everything you need to get started straight out of the box, so waste no time and get practising as soon as your package arrives. Included in this pack is a deluxe hard wood-shell case with a shoulder strap and an external accessory pouch. As well as this the cornet comes with a mouthpiece, lyre and care kit.
