Vintage Silver Cornet Boosey & Hawkes Imperial 1963 w/ Ridgeon Mouthpiece & Case. Vintage Silver Cornet Boosey & Hawkes 1963 with Original John Ridgeon Mouthpiece & Case.
This instrument has been fully cleaned and oiled internally, Valves and cylinders have been polished and a full set of new felts fitted. Beautiful smooth action and great classic tone. 56 years of playing has resulted in wear on the plating, giving a lovely patina - see photos.
There is one small deformity on the bell pipe, near the first valve tuning pipe - see photo. In certain lights there is a hint of a ripple on the bell edge, but I couldn't get a very clear photo. Considering it's age it's in great condition. The case is, well, a bit battered - but serviceable.
