    Amati Bb Cornet

    Model ACR201 - Serial Number 001559

    This student model cornet is in used condition having being used as a student instrument previously, albeit a few years ago - my younger sister learnt on it. However, it is good condition - all of the slides move and the valves are slick and the felts still fresh giving a reasonably quiet action commensurate with this model of instrument.

    It does have a few scratches - most notably some scuffing on the piping forming the sleeve of the main tuning slide, obviously this instrument has been placed "upside down" on a desk or table more than once - see photos. There are other very minor chips in the lacquer but these don't detract from the appearance of the instrument to any great degree.

    Surprisingly for a student model of this age, the instrument remains almost dent free other than 2 very minor creases about 1cm each long on the bell (see photo)

    The 3rd valve finger ring is present although the small "nut" from the 3rd valve reach adjuster is missing (see photo) although this also is a minor issue, does not affect the playing of the instrument and can be easily and cheaply replaced.

    Item comes with the original hard case of good condition and working catches, a Besson 7 mouthpiece, leather valve block cover and the original lyre which came with this instrument.

    This instrument blows freely and would make a perfect instrument for a beginner, especially if you are not sure whether they will stick with it for long.

    UK Paypal only, this item is sold as seen and no returns will be accepted.

    Starting at only £20.00 this item could be a bargain for somebody - happy bidding!

    Ebay listing here. Be quick! This auction ends 22:46 tommorow!
