Book Course

Course overview | Make your own wooden Cornetto with Sam Goble and Andrew Hallock.

During this four day course you will make a cornetto from a blank piece of wood, carving the bore, shaping the outside, cutting the diamonds, drilling holes and finally covering your instrument in leather. You will use historical methods and copy historical instruments at A=440, A=466 or A=440. We will discuss bore theory and supply a tuning guide.
