This is a very nice clean condition Yamaha YCR-8335 NEO Bb Cornet with the gold brass bell. The instrument has been very well cared for and only shows the very lightest signs of aesthetic use. As usual with pro level it is supplied with 1st and 3rd slide triggers for quick and accurate tuning adjustments.
The 8335G is supplied with a gold brass bell for extra warmth due to the increased copper content in the base material. Interestingly all the NEO Cornets have a gold brass leadpipe, tuning slide crook and connection tube. Yamaha say the addition of gold brass to these parts of the cornet give a versatile and flexible sound, especially in the higher register. A great deal of testing has gone on in Europe using different brass materials on certain parts of the cornet to try and achieve the authentic brass band feel but with a modern edge to reflect the demands of todays most prominent players.
This would be an professional model for the advanced player. Suitable across a wide range of musical settings it would sit perfectly in a Brass Band.
