CLASSIC BRITISH DESIGN 4-VALVE VERY RARE INSTRUMENT ECHO CORNET Item No: MI 028 Description:- The echo cornet has been called an obsolete variant; though as of May 2015, manufactured by Tristar (India), they are offered for sale new in contemporary times. The echo cornet has a mute chamber (or echo chamber) mounted to the side acting as a second bell when the fourth valve is pressed. The second bell has a sound similar to that of a Harmon mute and is typically used to play echo phrases, whereupon the player imitates the sound from the primary bell using the echo chamber. Short History: The cornet was invented by adding valves to the post horn in 1814. The valves allowed for melodic playing throughout the register of the cornet. Trumpets were slower to adopt the new valve technology, so for the next 100 years or more, composers often wrote separate parts for trumpet and cornet. The trumpet would play fanfare-like passages, while the cornet played more melodic passages. The modern trumpet has valves that allow it to play the same notes and fingerings as the cornet (Please Note:- If an item is sold then the handling time of that particular item will be around 10 to 15 days approximately and if in-case the item runs out of stock your money will be refunded as some times it do happens, If having any query or doubt please mail us on the registered mail id. )
