Notes: Options: Cornett 1: based on the bore of the Christ Church cornetts, maintaining the proportions of the original. It is rich and resonant, especially in the low register, making this an ideal 'alto' instrument. It plays with a forked C as suggested by Virgiliano (the unforked fingering gives a C-sharp); the B-flat is somewhat low with all holes closed, but this is improved by opening the thumb-hole (as suggested by the majority of historical fingering charts); high F works using a forked fingering only. Cornett 2: is shorter than the original, which 'corrects' the low B flat; the holes are also resized so that it plays with an unforked C (as found in historical fingering charts from Danier Speer onwards). F may be played either with a forked fingering or all holes closed, either way the tuning of this often-problematic note is perfect in mean-tone. This option is recommended for beginners looking for a versatile entry-level instrument. Cornett 3: CZ-440 with 2 interchangeable foot joints.
