421-S Cornet, medium-large bore – silver plate (ex-demo)
421-S B-flat cornet (serial no. 5038) is a new instrument that has been
available as a demonstration instrument either in our showroom or on trade
showstands over the last 18 months. We have been stocking two medium large bore
Willson cornets but have decided to reduce this to one; therefore we have
chosen to sell this instrument at a slightly reduced price as an ex-demo
instrument – hence the ‘new-other’ category. The other medium large model is a
model 430. We mostly supply the large bore versions of the Willson Celebration
(400/450/460); the 460 is the model previously promoted by Phil Cobb. All these
models are available for testing in our showroom.
The 421 in this
description is a medium-large bore cornet
“The Celebration cornet is notable for a warm, traditional brass band
sound. With superb response and near perfect delivery and intonation, the
Celebration is the ideal instrument for cornet desks in any brass band.”

Instruments is a music shop which has specialised in selling and repairing
brass and woodwind musical instruments since 1967. It was founded by Trevor
Austin (father of Paul) who was previously a euphonium player in the Horse
Guards (and played on horseback at the Queen’s Coronation). Following long
service in the Salvation Army as a player and conductor, his reputation led to
requests to supply instruments around the UK and overseas. Rosehill is now led
by Trevor’s son Paul, who was awarded a Government contract in 1999, and since
that time Rosehill has been the supplier of musical instruments to Her
Majesty’s Military bands. We also service and repair brass band and military band
instruments at our workshops in Beaconsfield, many of which are then supplied
