Sold/Expired Wanted: 3rd Valve Trigger Screw...

Does anyone have any idea where I can get a screw for a 3rd Valve trigger on a cornet?

I have an 8 year old Besson Sovereign cornet that I want to sell...but first I need to get the trigger mended. Unfortunately I have lost the screw! ...and I have been told that the screws are no longer made and are quite difficult to find...

(Also, if anyone has any ideas on how much I can expect to sell an 8 year old Besson Sovereign for, I would be interested to know...)

thanks for that! unfortunalely the same is not available for the prestige! possibly because they changed the design because of inherent faults (albeit minor and certainly not detracting from the beautiful sound it makes). it centres around the trigger linkeage on the tuning slide! enjoy semi retirement.

I you sure they're not compatible? Some parts work equally well for cornets and tenor horns, for instance.
