    I am looking to buy a Besson Prestige Cornet, and am wondering if anybody knows of any second hand ones for sale at the minute?

    I realise they're like hen's teeth, but thought it would be worth asking here anyway.

    Thanks very much,

    Thanks for this. I'm just slightly cautious about the condition of that one. Living in Northern Ireland, it's never quite as simple as "return it if you don't like the condition it's in", or "come and try before you buy"!

    Your York Eminence looks like a lovely instrument. Unfortunately I'm looking this cornet for my 17 year old brother.... Maybe he's being blinded by the gold triggers on the Prestige, but he's always played on B&H/Besson cornets, so isn't really looking to move away from them.
    Thanks anyway though :)

    Hi I have a besson Prestige for sale if anyone is intrested, in very good condition no dents, been valued at around £1,600. but don`t want a shop to add a mark up, so passing it on to a fellow brass player, looking for around £1,000.00 ovno, no time wasters please,
    this is a great offer price if a Prestige is what your after at a give away price.

    Do you have any pictures available to email? It's a bit of a trek down to Portsmouth so would be good to see what it's like beforehand. How old is the instrument? If you have pictures please can you email them to
