The Vincent Bach 184 is an American-built short model (shepherd’s crook) cornet, designed to produce the mellow sound of British-style brass bands.
Though not widely used amongst traditional brass bands, it is nevertheless popular with military bandsmen, with a rich vibrant tone that projects to the back of any bandroom or concert hall.
Manufactured in three different bore sizes (medium-large, large and extra-large), this is the medium-large bore 184ML model.
Wear & Tear Observations: This Bach cornet is in a well used condition, with lots of lacquer wear, however, the valves and tuning slides are quick and smooth and the cornet plays with that typical Bach sound.
