The B&S 3142 Challenger I
cornet is a professional "Shepherd's crook" Bb cornet.
The design offers a perfect balance of centered sound and resistance, specifically for trumpet players who are interested in learning to double on cornet as there are similarities in playing characteristics, all while being a great price!
However, this instrument still holds true to the tradition of quality craftsmanship that B&S is known for.
