Vintage Silver & Gold Plated Cornet (A Bb C)
This brass is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-10-16)
Price : US $177.50
For auction is a vintage, antique 1921 J. W. York and Sons Perfec Tone cornet. Cornet is beautiful with Satin Silver plating accentuated with Gold wash bell, Gold plated engraving on bell and gold plated finger buttons, top and bottom valve caps (gold plating has faded with time). Engraving on bell reads: ''PERFECTONE J.W. YORK and SONS Grand Rapids Mich.'' Nice playing horn. Has the capability to play in A, Bb and C. Included in auction is York and Sons case, 2 mouthpieces (1 marked York and Sons Al-True Model, 1 with no name), C leadpipe attachment slide and lyre. All slides are unstuck except the one that interchanges with attachment leadpipe. Could only find a couple small dings and some scratches on this instrument. Valves operate smoothly. Has good compression and sounds nice using my Bach cornet mouthpiece. I am downsizing my collection of trumpets/cornets which consists of many different models/makes; such as the York as pictured here, C.G. Conn, Olds, Martin, King, Vega, Keefer and Rudy Muck. Don't miss out on this nice Playable/Displayable cornet!! I am starting this auction with a low opening price and this beautiful horn will be going to the high bidder. If you have questions, just ask. Good luck and have a great day!!
