MARTIN INDIANA Bb CORNET
Pre-owned Vintage Bb Cornet
Maker: Martin Band Instruments
Manufactured: Approx. 1953-54 (Serial 48092)
Condition: This instrument should have been an A grade instrument. Unfortunately it sustained some shipping damage at the back of the bell bow. What can be removed without affecting the lacquer too much has been gently worked on. The lacquer is at least 90% there and has that wonderful honey golden colour from aging - I cannot confirm that this is original lacquer as there are some wear spots on the bell and areas which might suggest a respray. If it was done - it was a much older job. Valve action is quick and the horn plays great! You could have this as a daily player, or consider having it as a show piece.
Accessories included: This cornet is the complete package. Included is: original case, warranty card, swing tag, iIdiana card, lyre, Martin Cornet mouthpiece #1 and even the original keys to the case to lock it. It's incredibly hard to find all these components together.
