This is a vintage Holton Clarke Model Bb cornet. The Serial #112751 indicates it was built in 1932. The instrument was just professionally cleaned and received new valve washers, water key pad and complete pressure test to check for leaks. The satin silver plated finish is in good condition with only minor wear throughout, but some significant wear on one of the bottom valve caps. The bell interior is gold washed.
THERE ARE CRACKS IN THE LEADPIPE (SEE PICTURES), HOWEVER IT IS SOMEHOW NOT LEAKING. THIS SHOULD BE ADDRESSED MOVING FORWARD. ALSO, THE #1 VALVE NEEDS THE BOTTOM BRASS PLATE/CAP SOLDERED BACK IN. The valve moves freely.
Includes original Frank Holton & Co. #1 mouthpiece (has some plier marks around the exterior collar, otherwise in good condition) and cleaning rod. The original case is included and in pretty good condition for its age. The handle has been taped up.
