Adams Musical Instruments - Experience the Sound of Quality

Adams CN2 Cornet

The Adams CN2 short-action cornet with shepherds crook is very identical to the CN1, but is set up in a more traditional style with a wider build and a slightly heavier 0.55 gauge. The instrument has a large bore (12 mm), and a medium heavy valve cluster and buttons, offering a superb sound quality. The inhouse, one-piece handhammered yellow brass bell produces a beautiful warm sound with great projection, and the silver plated finish adds a touch of brilliance to the sound. It makes the instrument a fantastic choice for any ensemble. 


  • Bell: Gold Brass – 126 mm
  • Bore: L 12 mm
  • Finish: Silver plated
  • Gauge: 0.55
