Bb Cornet

A somewhat special Bb Cornett. Quite compact, and all ferrules are made of bronce, and extensively ornamented. It has a double water key, that can be comfortable serviced with the thumb. Double water keys are not used much anymre, because they are harder to get tight than single water keys. After restoring, the instrument plays really good.
