    For sale is my Besson Sovereign 921 "Globestamp" cornet. It has serial number 649xxx, which is believed to date from the early 1980s. These are becoming increasingly rare. All valves and removeable slides are stamped with the last three digits of the serial number. It has been in my possession since around 1992 although hasn't been used regularly since the late 90s.

    For its age it is in excellent condition, although some of the silver plating has worn away at various points where you hold the instrument. This could be cured by having it replated. There are a couple of minor dents that I have tried to show in the photos. The valve and slide action is excellent and it still plays very well. It comes with the case shown in the photos.

    The cornet is located in Cheshire, and is available for inspection. Additional photos can be emailed


    Also available is a barely used Yamaha Silent Brass system for trumpet/cornet. Price to be negotiated separately.

    Thanks for looking!

    Have to be honest, with that much silver missing I'd be surprised if you get anywhere near £700 - the ones in mint condition rarely seem to top 8-900.
