Conn 80A "Opera Glass" Cornet

Price: $345.00

This Conn Victor silver plated 80A “opera glass” cornet was made in 1937 according to its serial number (#316XXX) and it’s in good condition. The valves work well and all the slides pull. There is one small dent on the main tuning slide (see pictures) but otherwise this cornet is dent-free. The silver plating is a bit tarnished but it looks good, with no plating loss or thin spots that we can detect. We also see no signs of any significant previous damage or repair. The gold wash in the bell is still present and like the rest of the instrument it should polish up nicely. This cornet also features the Bb/A quick change mechanism which also works well. We’ve run this cornet through our professional brasswind shop to make sure it’s in good playing condition.

The case is original to the instrument and is in good condition for its age, with minor cosmetic wear on the interior and exterior. There is no damage to the wood, and the handle, latches and hinges all work as they should.
