Weasel What is this instrument? Lewes May Day (21) RE: What is this instrument? Lewes May Day 05 May 11


Greg Butler of Strawhead used to use the serpent's smaller brother, the cornett. Like the serpent, the cornett is made of wood (or nowadays often resin), has fingerholes like a recorder and is played with a brass style mouthpiece.

Clement Freud once described the cornett as a cross between a recorder and a shillelagh.

Cheers,

Weasel
