Vincent Bach Stradivarius Mt Vernon Cornet Bb Silver Plate Great Intonation. Condition is Used.

I first bought this horn in 1967 with a lacquered finish and played it professionally as well as in high school.

Medium-large bore… most in-tune cornet I have ever played… has two very well-performed patches that do not affect the tone and pitch… Silver Plate… comes with the original case… Includes a Bach 6B cornet mouthpiece…. SN 13584 (made in 1955)…

Valves were refurbished in 1980 when the silver plating was performed...

In 1986 I fell into financial trouble and sold all five of my then horns to the assistant first chair of the Florida Symphony Orchestra. In 1994, the FSO folded and he sold them all back to me for the same price he had paid me. One exception, a local doctor wanted this cornet for his son and it cost me $1200 to get it back. It's really a great instrument.

Among the 30 trumpets I had before being crippled with Still's Disease last year, I had four Bach trumpets in this key, but I preferred this instrument because of its great facility, intonation, and because the longer trumpets hit the music stand when I was in a cramped ensemble. No one ever demanded that I use a trumpet instead of this horn for ensemble work.

The case is truly beat up but serves the horn well. Only one of the latches works and I carry it with a Velcro strap around it. Ten years ago I used it to carry gold in because it was so unattractive...

Please don't hesitate to phone for more details... Negotiable but in no hurry...payment by PayPal Friends and family...

And please--as is strongly suggested by Trumpet Herald--phone me if you're really serious about purchasing this instrument.

Also, I have many other mouth pieces and I am willing to furnish one or several in addition to my personal favorite listed above.
