    Period Instrument Samples?

    Hi all. I'm looking for samples of an old wind instrument called a cornett. No, it's not the brass instrument (a cornet) but a snake like tube with a buzzed mouthpiece and finger holes - much like a small "serpent". SFZ samples to import into the ARIA player would be great! Any idea where to get something like this? All help appreciated!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    I've used a flugelhorn as a cornett substitute, and was reasonably pleased with the effect.

    Thanks for the tip Terry! I have experimented with the higher registers of the Alphorn mixed with some of this and that. I will try the flugels!

    Here's the cornett I am trying to emulate:

    Well, I have played the one pictured in the middle of the last post. But, believe me, you do not want samples of THAT!

    Well...yeah I do! It's for incidental music for Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice - Shakespeare specifically calls for a "flourish of cornetts" - so even if it sounds like a wailing baby hippo with the flu I want that sound!

    He later calls for a "flourish of trumpets" so I've got that one!
