Elkhart 300 series Bb cornet

£200.00

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.

Description

In great clean condition this student cornet has had a full overhaul and mechanically is in better condition than the day it was made. The valves have been lapped and the cheap springs and felts replaced with quality professional replacements. Consequently the valve action is superb, the slides are free and have been sized to fit correctly. It comes with its original mouthpiece but with a good quality hard case that has internal storage.
