These cornets are made in Europe and far exceed anything we can offer from factories in China. The price, for a high-quality intermediate model is an exceptional opportunity. The blowing experience is full and rich, and the build quality superior to any competition (in this price area). We have just a limited number available at this special price. They would suit any young player who is making good progress on their student cornet (due to the light weight and robust build quality), but also adult players who want a light but full sounding Bb to play in a brass band or wind band.
We can also supply the cornet without a hard case at a reduced price (some people prefer to use their existing cases or gig bags). Description: Excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. This cornet has been fully tested and prepared for sale by our brass technician to ensure complete function and the best possible sound. Please note: we have multiple Vantage cornets available for sale under this listing.
The photos attached to the listing depict just one of these cornets, and the instrument you receive may be slightly different from what is shown above. All of the instruments available are in excellent condition, brand new from the factory. The instrument is supplied in an Amati hard case, in full working order and excellent condition.
The case may have some very minor cosmetic wear, e. A few small scuff marks from warehouse stacking and storage. The case has a wood-shell construction, with two traditional clasps and a single carrying handle. In our opinion, these cases are well-designed and solidly built. We are always pleased to offer advice.
Product Specification (copied from the Geneva website). Bore: 11.79mm (0.464") Bell: 125mm (4.9"), Red Brass Lead Pipe: Red Brass Slide bows: Yellow Brass Inner Slides: Nickel Silver Outer Slides: Nickel Silver Valves: 3 Stainless Steel Piston Valves (Top Sprung) Triggers: 1st & 3rd triggers Waterkeys: Two, traditional style Finish: Silver plated. All of the cornets are in very similar condition, and this description applies to all of them, but there may be some minor cosmetic differences between each item.
The mechanical condition is excellent. The tuning slides fit tightly, move smoothly, and provide a good level of resistance. They have a clean, neat surface finish. The valve action is quick, fluid and quiet. The pistons themselves are unmarked and in excellent condition.The cornet plays beautifully, with a clean tone and a free-blowing character. The cosmetic condition is excellent: We are listing a number of these cornets and some might have a few light polishing marks on the plating, and there may be a tiny scratch or two on some of the cornets, but nothing easy to spot.
There are no dents or dings on the instrument as they are brand new. As the plating has been completed in Europe it will be of a high standard and last many years. You are most welcome to visit and test the instrument in our playing room prior to making a commitment.
