Monk Cornetto a=466, English Boxwood, Leather Covered
Please contact us to order
Monk cornetto boxwood & leather in g a=466. Modelled on a 17th Century original, formerly in the possession of the late Christopher Monk, this model is well proven and probably the most generally accepted cornetto of its sort today. This cornetto in g is the high pitch equivalent of the standard resin cornetto and is for players who want to play at 17th century original pitch. The wooden instrument has greater subtlety of tone colour and potential in skilled hands than the resin model, and is popular amongst leading professional and amateur players alike. Made from English boxwood, slow growing and producing a timber which is full of stresses, very close grained and dense, the resulting instrument is bright and uniquely responsive. Mouthpiece is not included in the price.
