V.Bach Stradivarius Mod 37 Cornet - £575.00
Generally very good condition.Lacquer is almost intact except for an area on the bell which appears to have had a dent removed.A crease has also been removed from the bell,but lacquer is still intact here.

Mechanically excellent and generally has the appearance of an instrument that has been well looked after.

Comes with V.Bach 5C mouthpiece and an original Bach case, which does the job , but has seen better days.


Yamaha 2330S II Cornet - £375.00
Bought new from Bill Lewington in the 1990's, this Cornet has had only 6 months minimal use and been stored ever since.

It is in absolutely mint condition and would easily pass as new.

Comes in original case, which is in a similar condition and with Gold Plated Denis Wick 4B mouthpiece.

Highly Recommended.


Besson 600 Cornet Silver Plate - £195.00
Excellent condition.Completely overhauled and silver plated.Nice case and mouthpiece

Besson 923 Sovereign MB Cornet - £795.00
One small dent has been removed from the back bend (not by me), but apart from this, the instrument is virtually immaculate.Silver is all original.Plays well. Comes with mouthpiece and very nice, but not original, quality case.

Unusually, this Cornet has the modern Besson engraving, not the round badge ,which would normally be expected on a 923 model.It also has the current style of triggers. This would lead me to believe that it is possibly one of the last 923's made before changing to the present 927.


Trevor James Renaissance Cornet Model CT6500 - £295.00
I have two of these, both have had minor soldering jobs.One had had the Finger hook resoldered. The other has had the First Slide Trigger resoldered. Otherwise as new.

Being sold as Grade II Bore .441"(11.20mm),Bell Dia 4.72"(120mm),Rose Brass Bell and Leadpipe,Stainless Steel Valves, 1st & 3rd Triggers.

Normal RRP 719.00


Besson International Trumpet - £260.00
Nice Trumpet.Few scratches and mouthpipe appears to have been resoldered at some point.However, lacquer is intact and this is generally a very tidy instrument and would be a very acceptable upgrade from a Student trumpet.Plays well.Comes with case and mouthpiece.

V.Bach Stradivarius Mod 37 Trumpet - £850.00
This Trumpet has been stored for several years.

It has now been totally refurbished and silver plated.Good to look at and good to play.

Comes with mouthpiece and original case.


Yamaha 354 Trombone - £475.00
Selling on behalf of customer.

This Trombone is in showroom condition. Appears to have had very little use.Highly recommended. Comes with 2 mouthpieces and Trombone stand.


AK Amati Tenor Horn - £175.00
Virtually new.Couple of tiny marks, but looks and plays like a new instrument.

Comes with original case, also like new and mouthpiece.


Jupiter Tenor Horn - £195.00
Virtually Immaculate.Silver intact. Valves look like new.Plays like new.

This is part of a job lot which came from a band which disbanded several years ago.

I would guess that this Horn has spent most of its life in the store room. It shows very little signs of any use.

An excellent starter instrument at a sensible price.

Comes with mouthpiece and a solid , but not original, wooden case.
