B&S Challenger I Bb Cornet Silver Plated BS3142-2-0


The B&S 3142 Challenger I cornet is an entry level 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.

However, this instrument still holds true to the tradition of quality craftsmanship that B&S is known for.
