I am trying to choose between the 271sw John Packer cornet and the Besson BE120.

DS is nearly Grade 3 level. He has mild cerebral palsy which makes holding the Cornet a bit difficult - so the lighter the instrument the better.

Does anyone know which of these makes the nicest sound is the best quality and/or is the lightest?

Thank you.

Sixty years ago I had a Besson trumpet! I think you need to do more research, and ask his teacher. Also, if you can purchase via his school, you may be able to get a better price, without VAT.
