The Perfect Starting Point
The Prodige cornet has been designed to suit entry level players specifically. Featuring an easy blowing leadpipe, the Besson BE120 produces a fabulous tone while retaining the traditional Besson sound. The tuning of the cornet has also been developed to ensure consistent and accurate intonation. All the tuning slides on the BE120 are made from brass. This is especially important as it keeps the slides smooth a free-moving.
To ensure you can start learning the basics of tuning, the BE120 Prodige cornet features a first slide saddle and third slide tuning ring. These smooth slides are perfect for making minor adjustments to help tune with those around you. All of these features come together to produce a cornet that is worthy of any beginner player.
The Prodige series of instruments from Besson are designed to redefine the student market. These instruments have been created to provide great sounding beginner instruments that are also reliable, practical, and hard wearing. Thanks to the very desirable price, the Prodige series of instruments have become popular among teachers, and are regularly bought for training bands and educational authorities.
