Galileo German Rotary Cornet (Deutches Kornett) in B-flat for sale

This is a german rotary cornet (Deutsches Kornett in Bb) in B-flat made by Galileo. It’s finished in silver plate and is in excellent condition – no marks or dings. It has a gold brass bell. The valves move freely and fast, all slides move as they should. There is a thumb push for the 3rd valve slide (which is natural to use) and the finger ring is fully adjustable to enable the player to find the most comfortable playing position. The valve slides are one piece, without joints.

The cornet plays superbly and I’ve used it in a variety of situations, including many times in English brass/silver bands. It blends really well with other instruments, including sections of piston cornets and many people (band conductors, other players (including non-cornet players) and members of the public) comment on how good the tone is. These instruments are very very rare and are built to order.

Price: SOLD
