However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Reference for Brass Bands

Besson is the brand name most associated with brass band communities. The commitment towards their research and development is demonstrated through the constant improvement of existing models, to better cope with the ever-changing demands and styles of the modern day composer and performer.

New Standard Cornet

The New Standard Cornet is designed with a student player in mind. With a classic European tradition composition, this model keeps up the high quality expected from all Besson instruments.

Gold Brass Bell

Gold brass is popular among orchestral players, for its ability to achieve much darker sounds than yellow brass can. This is because gold brass contains a higher amount of copper than yellow. Whilst maintaining a high level of projection gold brass manages to provide a broader, fuller tone.


Designed especially for student players, the new standard cornet features a classic European tradition composition. Including a shepherd's crook, 1st valve thumb saddle, adjustable 3rd valve slide ring stop, stainless steel pistons and two lever-style waterkeys. A 5" gold brass bell and clear lacquer body both finish off the impressive design.

Everything You Need

The New Standard Cornet comes with everything you need to get started straight out of the box, so waste no time and get practising as soon as your package arrives. Included in this pack is a single soft compact case. As well as this the cornet comes with a mouthpiece, lyre and care kit.
