All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. It's hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the wants of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.
The attractive price tag, generous bore size (11.68mm/0.46 bore) and the smooth operation of the Nickel silver valves, are just a few of the features that have made the Odyssey Debut 'Bb' Cornet a favourite with musicians around the world. The bore size alone combines the best of projection volume and air flow, delivering an abundance of signature Cornet sounds with exceptional tonal qualities.
With a brass bell (119mm/4.68š¹ bell diameter) and Pollard tapered lead pipe, brass tuning slides, water key and nickel silver valves, the Odyssey Debut 'Bb' Cornet with a clear lacquer finish, is a real eye catcher without doubt, but itš´s also the performance to cost ratio that makes this beautiful Bb Cornet a winner. Players from students to seriously professional musicians have commented on the excellent response, superb intonation and the high quality materials chosen in the construction.
The 7c size mouthpiece, with its shallower, medium cup size is ideal for beginners, offering less effort to produce smooth sounds and reach the higher registers, whilst combining the natural deeper, darker tones the Cornet is known for, tones that are unique among brass instruments and play a major role within orchestras, jazz and commercial bands.
The response, intonation and all around performance of the Odyssey Debut 'Bb' Cornet coupled with the high quality materials, make this an ideal instrument for the first time player, teacher, or the most experienced musician.
