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.
With a luscious silver-plated brass body, offset with gold lacquered parts, including the slide, bottom and top caps, finger buttons and water keys, the aesthetics of the 'Bb' Cornet from the Odyssey Symphonique Series speak for themselves.
A real eye catcher without doubt, but it’s also the performance to cost ratio that make this beautiful Bb cornet a winner. Players from students to seriously professional musicians have commented on the excellent response. It has been designed to provide comfort and security when performing in the high register, while maintaining a beautiful warm sound in any range - with superb intonation. As with all Odyssey instruments only the highest quality materials are chosen in the construction.
With all the characteristics associated with a cornet including the adjustable tuning 1st slide and the 3rd valve throw, the Odyssey Symphonique 'Bb' Cornet is lightweight and extremely comfortable to play.
Luxurious appointments also include a mouthpiece from a series hand-built to an extremely high standard by Denis Wick and regarded by musicians as arguably the world’s finest. With meticulous attention paid to the rims for comfort and consistency, each mouthpiece, with beautiful and extremely hard-wearing silver and gold plating, delivers a pure honey sweet tone with a rich, mellow voice that has a colourful role in brass bands. Punching dynamics that sit in the higher register add a new dimension when playing obbligato over the top of a musical arrangement.
As a company producing some of the world’s finest brasswind instruments, Odyssey recognise the fact that protection whilst travelling with a delicate instrument is paramount. To ensure players can maintain a high standard with this instrument, Odyssey has included gloves and a cleaning cloth, whilst a plush lined, Zero-gravity ‘backpack’ hard foam, canvas covered case with shoulder straps takes all the worry out of commuting with such a delicate instrument.
