OVERVIEW

Larger bore for a bigger sound.

The 800L Series features a .462-inch bore combined with a Shepherd's crook to create a true cornet sound but with a free blowing feel and response. It is based on the Getzen 800, but it is capable of greater volume if you have the big blow to fill it to the brim. Brilliant but rich and satisfying. What a horn!

FEATURES
  • Free blowing
  • Loud and clear
  • Sweet cornet tone

First rate cornet

I recently joined a brass band, and needed a cornet superior to my old, Bundy student-model cornet. I noticed several other members of the brass band playing on the Getzen Eterna, and after researching the Getzen brand and the 800L in particular, I decided to order it, together with the Yamaha Neo for comparison. Immediately, I was impressed by the sturdy, spacious case the horn comes in, which also includes a convenient place for a music folder. The horn has very smooth valve action, which Getzen excels at. The tone is warm and rich, and the horn achieves excellent intonation as each note slots well. Although the Yamaha was a nice horn, the 800L felt more comfortable to hold and play, and the price point of this horn is very attractive as well. In the end, it was a no-brainer to choose the Getzen 800L, and I'm looking forward to playing this cornet for many more years to come!

"You better keep that horn"

By

I must confess that I have a love for cornets, having started on one back in 1962. This is my first new cornet in over four decades. The Getzen Eterna 800L cornet is a solidly built, beautitul sounding instrument. It feels comfortable, not cramped. I have fairly small hands so the leadpipe pinky hook is a bit of a stretch, but I was taught never to play that way so it's not a problem. Something about the bore (large) and wrap (shepherd's crook) makes it very flexible when doing octave leaps, slurs, arrpegios. I bought it on trial and decided to keep it when my teacher said, "You better keep that horn," after hearing the tremendous improvement in my sound, articulation, etc..
