This Getzen Eterna cornet is the predecessor of the legendary 800 model and has an identical build as far as I can tell. What makes this cornet rare and especially fine is that it is one of the very hard-to-find .468 bores, actually technically an extra-large XL bore according to my local tech who measured it for me.

It has a low serial# (68xx), and soon after it was made Getzen changed these models to a smaller size. It is marked with a LB below the serial number.

It has been my very favorite, fun-to-play, go-to horn for years. It is incredibly free-blowing and easy to play--exceedingly nimble with the slickest valves I've ever seen. Compression is still just about perfect, as is the silver finish. It produces an incredibly huge sound with impeccable intonation. There is only one ding on the top of the bell. It has a Bob Reeves valve alignment.

I'm only parting with it because I have purchased the newest Getzen flagship cornet, the 800DLX, which is also a large-bore (.462) but doesn't wear me out as quickly on long, loud gigs.

There is no case or mouthpiece. Shipping via USPS Priority Mail is included in the price. Paypal payment required. Buyers from other countries must agree to pay more for shipping.
