I am selling my beloved Early Elkhart 1970’s Bach Stradivarius Straight Bell Bb Cornet.
I purchased it a year ago and have only performed on it once and this beautiful sounding horn needs more playing time from someone who will utilize it more often than I can.

-Intonation is great across all registers!
-It produces a very warm, yet projecting sound due to the bell crook’s shape.
-All slides and valves are still as clean as when I purchased the horn.
-It does show signs of age with the lacquer being worn off as shown in the pictures. There is also one noticeable dent on the bell flare but it is not deep and doesn’t affect playability.
-I will include the original case and I will also include a valve guard. I will also include the generic mouthpiece (Blessings 3C) with the purchase.

$1050. Serious inquiries only. Shipping is included. Paypal is my preferred method of payment.

It breaks my heart to see this cornet go, but it needs to be played more and I currently do not do enough cornet playing to justify keeping it currently.
