Yamaha YCR-2330 Cornet in like new condition.  

Marketed as a student level instrument, this older version of the 2330 cornet plays on par with professional horns costing significantly more.  This was a store model and is in like new condition.  

The Yamaha YCR-2330 cornet is an excellent introductory model that features a "Shepherd's Crook" bell style, that is to say, as the bell section departs valve casing, it dips downward before it straightens out into the bell proper. It is a charming, lovely design, as is the term used to describe it.

It also features a rounded leadpipe and a ML (medium-large) bore for smooth and light playability with a soft, warm tone. An adjustable third valve trigger accommodates different sized hands helping the player develop proper playing technique. Compared to the trumpet, the cornet features a greater proportion of conical tubing, which gives it a mellow, softer tone.

Highly durable monel alloy pistons as well as newly designed valve buttons and bottom caps help lengthen the life of the instrument while also maximizing sound quality.

The 2nd and main tuning slides are produced using the same method as high-end Yamaha models, which provides stability, a more refined tonal color and added durability. The redesigned rounded leadpipe and ML (medium-large) .459" bore give this instrument a smooth and light response and a warm tone quality.
