Besson 700 International/B&H Imperial Cornet - £275.00
Sometime during the late 70's /early 80's, B&H discontinued the Imperial and replaced it with the Besson 700 International.This was a slightly updated Imperial valve section, fitted with a 3rd valve slide trigger and an Imperial bell,which was engraved Besson 700 International.

During the change over a few Imperial Bells were used, presumably to save throwing them away.These Cornets did not have the 700 prefix, but in every other way were the International.This one is an Imperial Bell on a 700 valve section.

The s/n dates this instrument to 1981, so I assume this is a "changeover" model.

Some evidence of a few small dents being removed, but silver is intact and it is generally in excellent condition.Plays well.Comes with Mouthpiece and a blue B&H Case.

N.B. It is always possible that the Bell has been changed sometime during the life of this instrument,but I can see no evidence of this.
