This is a silver Boston 3 Star Bb Cornet from early 1910s (S/N 20xxx). The Boston was one of the most popular cornets of the time and this one really displays the how and why! The cornet is in beautiful shape with 95% original silver plate and the cornet has had very little trauma in its lifetime. The valves are still in pretty good shape and still have a good "pop" when the slides are pulled out! The 3 Star plays extremely well and can outplay any newer cornets these days, and this one is almost 100 years old! This cornet still has plenty of life left in it so this would be a perfect addition to a player's vintage collection or as an everyday player! The cornet plays as is in high pitch, but it has a built in 2nd tuning slide that can drop the pitch to low pitch with no tuning issues in either tuning. The cornet also comes with original case, an original Boston mouthpiece as well as original lyre holder!
