Since 1894 the King name has been synonymous with world-class high quality brass instruments. Keeping with tradition, the King 2220 cornet was designed to meet the demanding needs of today's British-style brass bands. Compact and agile yet responsive and warm, the 2220 is the perfect choice for all musical styles.
The King 2220 is a professional British-style Bb cornet with the traditional shepherd's crook short model design. The Shepherds crook bell design provides a classic cornet sound. The .462" large bore promotes an ease of response and a open feel. The one-piece hand-hammered professional rose brass bell produces a warm sound with ample projection. The rose brass leadpipe warms the sound and resists corrosion while the professional Monel piston material provides smooth and quick valve action. 1st and 3rd valve slide triggers permit quick tuning adjustment. The clear lacquer finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. The 2220 cornet is a well rounded instrument at home in multiple musical settings.
