Sterling Virtuoso Bb Cornet - Silver Plate – Used - Excellent Condition

“The Sterling Virtuoso Bb Cornet has all the warmth and character that you would expect from a British cornet.  It's effortless upper register and accurate intonation will surpass all your expectations.  This is an outstanding traditional cornet that will meet the demands of both solo and band requirements.”

This Sterling Virtuoso Bb Cornet, serial number 42603, was built in Sterling’s factory in Great Britain as a professional standard instrument and is thought to be no more than two years old.  It was recently received as part payment for a York Eminence Cornet.  Having been lightly used the instrument is in excellent condition and plays freely with a strong sound.  Triggers are fitted to the 1st and 3rd tuning slide.  The 3rd also has an additional water key.

Bell diameter:

4 7/8"




Bright silver plate


Stainless Steel Pistons

Dent free, the finish only shows minor scratching that can expected of silver plate over time.

Having been checked by our technicians you will find the valves, slides and water keys are all in working order. The valves are responsive and show little sign of wear; the cockades are solid and without holes; the plastic guides are in good order as are the valve springs.

It is supplied with the original Sterling case with a suitable used (cleaned) mouthpiece.

If on initial inspection you are disappointed in any way, and return it, you will receive a full refund.

Collection in person is very welcome - and would give you an opportunity to test the instrument in our showroom.
