B&H “78” Bb cornet

£150.00

I Love these 78’s, made in Malta for Boosey & Hawkes in satin silver with bright silver accents. The way they are assembled make it easy to modify them for a moving 3rd valve slide. This is done by reversing the inner and outer upper leg, adding a finger ring and then lapping to move freely. There is a little bit of silver wear around the instrument but it blows beautifully and has a light but fast valve action. It is supplied in a Besson hard case that has storage and has a brand new 4B mouthpiece.
