    Hi all, and thanks for your feedback regarding my thread trumpet or cornet.
    For sound reasons I am going for a cornet I have a small budget of £300 max.
    Cornets I have seen on Ebay for around this price are Besson, Elkhart, Boosey & Hawkes, Yamaha, and Blessing. I have not listed them in any order because I no nothing about them. So for the Budget I have I would love some advice on them please........Thanks............Or any other's around this price.

    You should be able to get a reasonable Sov or Imp for that money which will serve you well.

    I have the chance to buy a cornet that has been stripped of it's lacquer so that it is raw brass,
    is this an ok thing to do?

    It depends on whether you're bothered about looks.....
