Here's a horn that you most definitely will not see everyday.

I was thinking about keeping this for my personal collection but I just got a new custom Coppernicus from Adams and a custom a8 model as well from Adams. One horn in / one horn out! So I'm very, very, very, reluctantly selling this amazing cornet.  Kevin Stiles at Heritage music repair did this repair restoration which cost me a ton of money...   The horn looks and plays just fantastically well.

This is a horn that I've actually looked for for probably over 15 years and this is only the second one I've found. The York air flow cornet was one of the most cutting-edge instruments of its time and still quite honestly is extremely revolutionary. You'll want to check out the video that I posted of me playing this and if you need any additional photos or videos of the instrument please let us know.

The horn is in very nice condition, with a few small pings.

 

You got to check out the brochure that we've attached as well.

 

 

This horn as some great/unique design features, including the unique wrap, the bell bead on the outside of the bell, and a short valve block.

 

Due to the nature of this custom instrument there will be no out-of-shop trials. Anybody who's seriously interested can come to the Kansas City shop though, and we can pick you up from the airport that's not a problem! Sale is final.

Enjoy this one of a kind instrument!

 

We do have the original case for this horn as well as I have made a custom  backbore that fits this horn perfectly!
