The same great quality found in all Getzen Trumpets can also be found in the entire line of Getzen Cornets. The newly designed Custom Series Cornets utilize all the advancements of the Getzen ProShop. This dedication to quality has found its way into general production resulting in one of the best lines of cornets anywhere. From the 381 student model to the 3810 Custom Series, there's a Getzen model to match every player's style.
The same great valve sections found on all Getzen Trumpets can also be found on every Getzen Cornet. Hand lapped, nickel silver pistons mean that you will never be held back by the performance of your valves. As with the trumpet line, there are several options available on Getzen Cornets. Three different bell options on the Custom Series Cornets ensures each player can find the exact sound that he or she wants.

Getzen offers two high quality finish options. One is our specially formulated, baked epoxy lacquer that shows off the natural color of the instrument. The other is our signature silver plate with a brightness that is unmatched in the industry.
Not all finishes are offered on all models. Check individual model options to determine availability.
Clear lacquer is the most economical of all finish options. The durable finish protects the brass from tarnishing while allowing the natural beauty of the metals to shine through.
Bright Silver Plate
Bright silver plate is a very popular finish with most musicians. It provides a bright, uniform finish to the instrument while protecting the brass from tarnishing. Silver can become tarnished over time however and requires occasional cleaning or polishing to maintain its bright shine.
