    It's always good to look around the net for decent instruments at a decent price. What are you thinking about getting? Another Yamaha, or are you wanting to go for a second-hand Sovereign or try other models? Is it medium, medium-large or large bore that you are considering? There is a nice medium-large bore cornet on sale here but see what you think.

    Well, I'm not too sure where the Yamaha sits in the range but I bought
    my daughter the Getzen Capri 580s from Dawkes Music for much about
    the price you mention new, and she's well pleased - she plays it in our
    3rd Section band. I reckon it will keep her going thru her Uni years and
    maybe when she joins a better band in later years she may want a Sov
    or something similar...

    I have to say, as a former Sov and now a Smith Watkins owner, I'm very
    impressed with the Getzen build quality - esp the silver plate.

    You'd get a decent second hand maestro for that money if you want to stay with a Yamaha. With the Xeno now out there should be a fair few Maestros available.
