Almost 40 years to the day after setting the cornet world abuzz with the introduction of the first 800 Eterna cornets and just a few years after unveiling the 3850 Custom cornet, Getzen is proud to announce that “We’re doing it again.” This time, however, it’s not a new Bb cornet that’s being released. Instead, we are introducing the new 3810 Custom Series C and the 3892 Custom Series Eb cornets.
The 3810 and 3892 Custom Series cornets have many of the great features found on all Getzen Custom Series cornets and trumpets. Both feature hand-spun bells, nickel silver balusters, world-famous Getzen pistons, and both are covered by the Getzen Lifetime Platinum Warranty. The 3892 comes standard with a seamless copper bell similar to the standard bell found on the 3850 Bb. As with the 3850 Bb, the 3810 C and 3892 Eb cornets are built around the concept of being free-blowing instruments with excellent intonation while maintaining the traditional “cornet” sound.
With the widespread acceptance and popularity of the 3850 Custom Bb cornet, players began approaching us to fill a void in the industry. That void was the absence of a high-quality, orchestral grade C cornet and a fine Eb suited for British-style brass band players. Now, after months of design work and consultation with professional musicians and music professors, we are confident in saying that the void is no more.
