Monk Cornetto in G @ A466 -  Leather/Resin by Jeremy West - includes New Dutch Acorn Mouthpiece and Padded Bag

The late Christopher Monk's legacy to early music was the invention and development of the resin cornetto and the workshops now under the management of Jeremy West continue to produce some of the best and most widely played cornetti in the world. Modelled on a 17th Century original, formerly in the possession of the late Christopher Monk, this model is well-proven and probably the most generally accepted cornetto of its sort today. Fingering is much like a treble recorder in G. The resin version is the best selling cornetto in the world.

Broadening a recorder player's repertoire

This was purchased as gift for a proficient recorder (and French horn) player who was unfamiliar with playing this type of instrument but interested in early music - it was very well received. The instrument came promptly and is a nice looking leather bound period replica. It is early days in terms of commenting on the sound except to say that it is a loud instrument compared to the recorder and French horn. I am told that it is easier to play if you have longer fingers but otherwise it has many similarities (except its sound) to a recorder.
