“Instrument of pistons in brass tuned in Sib with the same same texture of the cornet. Conical body, wide bell and the large format of its predecessor, the horn of keys. The nozzle has a deep, almost funnel-shaped bowl and a sliding tube serves the tuning adjustment. The sonority is round and soft, though rough as the Bugle when this instrument is played in loud sonorous intensity. ” In this example the pistons and cylinders are replaced by a rotary valve system. The instrument has a removable nozzle.
