Definitely one of the best horns I've ever played, and certainly the best cornet I've played. Good slotting, spot on intonatio, flexible and that dark, rich buttery tone I like. Highly recommended!
Please note the instrument shown here is one of Trent's personal instruments but ACB is happy to Pre-Order you a DQ Picasso cornet! Check out the videos below and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out!
Initially built as a special order instrument, we liked this cornet enough that we decided to add it to the line of instruments. DQ's design idea was to mix the traditional elegant bends of a traditional cornet along with a modern flare that makes it all my own. The response of the instrument is very immediate with great tuning in all registers.
