Hi to every gentle people out there. Got a question : where can I get a new or used pocket cornet? Try to find, very hard to get it seems.

I'm from Canada, Quebec City to be more precise.

Thank you!

Someone stocked up on some NOS Amati pocket cornets at some point in the past. They're still offered every now and then on eBay, etc.. Some people think they're crap; the one I have isn't really any worse than the average less-than-pro-priced pocket trumpet. It's not in the same league as a large-bell CarolBrass pocket trumpet, but it's good enough for what I need. YMMV.

The only pocket cornet I now is the Holton C 105 but this model is discontinued many years now and is super rare in the used market.
