This brass is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-07)
Price : US $130.27
This ia a great find at a local estate sale...1961 Holton Galaxy Bb Cornet. Soft sound, not the edge that a trumpet has. The valves work just great!! All slides have had new slide grease applied. The serial number is 344792. This instrument is nickel silver and brass. The only part that is brass are the three valve slides. The brass finish on those slides is worn and there are a couple of dents on the tuning slide. The nickel silver finish is intact , except for a couple of places where the player's acid ate through some of the nickel finish. Could use new corks on the spit valves. Comes with a Vincent Bach 9C mouthpiece. Could use a good cleaning...I did some when I received it. Now, the case that it came in was really not in great shape, so I picked up another Holton and used the case it had...if you want the original case, let me know. It has an engraved bell!! Will need to get a lyre for it, if you will be playing outside. Good bidding!!
