Comments about Getzen 3810 Custom Series C Cornet:
I was sitting in the first balcony hearing a Lyric Opera performance of Berlioz' Damnation of Faust. The high brass sounded great. During intermission I went down to the pit and spoke with the trumpeters. They were using the Getzen C cornet! Perfect blend with the orchestra, perfect period sound, and a solid projection with great intonation. The principal said he used the Getzen because Getzen built "a real cornet," referring to the conical tubing characteristics and what it did for them.
