    Hi everyone, i need help!!! I am currently playing a lovely little silver Blesing cornet, that my friend does not want to sell booooh!!!

    However, i have another friend who has offered me a Dynasty USA silver cornet or a Besson 600 brass cornet, and I dont know which one to choose.

    I have seached the web and feel no better off, and thought you experts could help me choose the best instrument out of the two.

    Please help and advise,:play:

    Stay away from the Dynasty. The Besson is a possible good horn. It depends on who made it. I would need to know all the markings on the horn and where they are on the horn. Is this a gift or a sale?

    The only thing that I can tell you is to play both and make your decision. A good Dynasty is better than a bad Besson and vice versa. Used horns can be a blessing or curse.

    I, like Bob am very careful about anything with a name that contains "nasty".

    thanks guys, that's useful. i was leaning towards the Besson as i think it sounds better. plus the dynasty is loosing its laquer.

    there is a number on the besson 622-792187, dont know if this tells you anything. My friend has offered me either, as a gift, not to purchase, i wouldn't have a clue what they're worth.

    cheers,
