For me the ml version is very tight but I prefer large bore cornets and open Bb's, if you prefer tight feel horns the ml probably it suits better your needs .
The best is to found them and try both.
Good luck .

Regards

Brett Getzen might be the best guy to answer that.

I own a bunch of cornets and one of them is an Eterna 800 ML and it's by far the best cornet of them all and by far the best cornet I ever played. Great horn. They say that the L bore Eterna should be even better, I don't know, never played one.

The ML would be better in a symphony orchestra, and the L might work better in a brass band. It depends what sound you prefer. I have the ML, and it doesn't feel tight to me. The L is darker with less highs in the sound than the ML. Try both.

I’ve never played an ML, but my Getzen 800 large bore is the easiest playing instrument that I’ve ever owned. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. On days where I haven’t gotten to practice enough, or for some reason my chops aren’t feeling 100%, or if I just need to feel the most secure and confident possible I turn to my Getzen LB cornet.

It’s like magic. I’d give anything to find a trumpet that plays that easily.

Needless to say, I advise you to hold out for a LB.

O yes, I forgot. I am with Markp here, my Eterna 800ML is an amazing horn and I also would give anything to find a trumpet that plays that easily.
But the ML bore Eterna certainly is NOT a tight horn, it's more extremely efficient. BTW it is the only ML bore horn I own, all my cornets and trumpets are lb. The Eterna ML is not tighter than any of my lb horns.

Sorry for the late reply. I think the above responses sum up why I couldn’t really tell you which is better. Too subjective. What I can say is if you are looking for a cornet, click on to our Facebook page down below and look for the post about Jonathan Corry’s recent visit. A little something we’re working on.

You’re right it didn’t say much. Just a teaser of something we aren’t ready to “announce” yet. And it isn’t just for him, but he was the first outsider to get his hands on it.

Is this a custom reserve? A continuation of what you were tinkering with when I was at your factory? (I hope I hope)
