Here is a dropdead gorgeous Lyon & Healy Bb cornet in almost perfect condition! This Lyon & Healy dates back to 1903 (S/N 29xx/19xx). The cornet has a pristine satin silver finish with a bright silver bell. The cornet suffered very little trauma in its life with one exception - the bell bow has a crack that is now filled. The original valves do not look great, but they still hold a very good amount of compression! The slide pulls with pretty good "pop". The cornet plays really well with consistent tone across the range, while having the signature old school cornet sound. This is easily one of our favorite early cornets in the shop!

This cornet is part of the Jimmy Taylor Collection.
