The York Airflow is an amazing pre-WW2 design that is a must for the serious collector. The design places the valves at a 45 degree angle from the player's perspective. I have owned this cornet for over 20 years although I have not played it much. It was purchased at an antique shop near New Orleans. It plays and the slides work although the pictures reveal the extent of the wear it has endured over the past 70+ years. The valves work well although the threads on one of the valve casings (the cornet itself - not the piston) is worn. The bottom cap stays on and can be used "as is" although it will likely need to be addressed at some point. It needs a few items such as new felt and the finger buttons are not uniform. With that said, it is an amazing instrument that is increasingly difficult to find. I'm hopeful it will find a good home and can be used for years to come. The mouthpiece (Bach 7A) comes with the cornet although I doubt it is original. I do not have a case.
