Stylish And High Grade 4 Valve Cornet With Mute Bag Along With A Mouth Piece MI 070 Item No: MI 070 Description :- This is a beautiful 4 valve Echo Cornet, great for beginners to intermediate players. An “Echo Cornet” has the same design and fingering as a regular 3 Valve Cornet. However, it has a unique design, it has a second bell that provides an instantaneous muted effect on pressing the 4th Valve. When the 4th valve is depressed, the airstream is directed into the cone shaped 2nd bell creating a muted sound. It can be used to produce echoed phrases and to practice in unsympathetic surroundings. So you can keep the 4th Valve depressed when practising without disturbing anyone around you! It can also be used as a novelty to get a quickly pulsating echo by utilizing the valve in rapid succession. Or, simply don’t use the 4th Valve and play it like a regular cornet! Short History :- The name cornet derives from corne, meaning horn, itself from Latin cornu. While not musically related, instruments of the Zink family (which includes serpents) are named “cornetto” or “cornett” in modern English to distinguish them from the valved cornet described here. The 11th edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica referred to serpents as “old wooden cornets”. The Roman/Etruscan cornu (or simply “horn”) is the lingual ancestor of these. It is a predecessor of the post horn from which the cornet evolved and was used like a bugle to signal orders on the battlefield
