Soloist

millprod LOGO

The Soloist cornet has been granted Millenium Product status by the U.K. Design Council after scrutiny by a panel of leading figures from business, design, science and culture.

They also contacted leading cornet players (i.e. some of our customers) for their views. This cornet, designed by Dr. Richard Smith, has a unique facility for swapping leadpipes, enabling changes in musical quality for varying playing styles and environment. This is of great advantage not only to the solo player who may regularly use different pipes, but also for the less experienced player who wishes to use the soloist instrument as a test-bed for trying out several parts before the final assembly of an Artiste Cornet.
