Brand: York

Model: Air-Flow Cornet

Year: 1938

Key: Bb

Bore: L .468"

Finish: Raw Brass

Case: Yes - Original York Case

From our history files: York ends up making these from about 1938 until they sell the company in 1940. Serial numbers found on existing instruments range from 120319 to 124155. Owners of these instruments say that they are the best sounding that York ever made and some think they have the best sound of any maker. They have a 4.5” bell, a 0.468” bore, and the trumpet is 18.5” long. There is only a slight difference between the cornet and trumpet with the trumpet being 0.75” longer and having an angled brace from bell to receiver where the cornet has a straight brace. The other unique feature of these is the rolled edge of the bell is inside rather than outside as shown on the design drawing. This gives it the look of a rimless bell. Used w/ Original York Case.
