    Looks like the auction has ended and no picture was there. For that kind of money, you can't get much Bach for your Bucks.:lol:

    Looks like a silver plated CR310 to me.

    Dave, you just have to know where to look to find the pictures...:D

    probably a plated CR-310, student SC version of the CR-300. Not much of a description with it either.......Buck, who got a little more bang for his Bach:lol::roll::oops:

    Thanks, Dale, I didn't think to click the square there. I would agree with Buck. Not too familiar with current Bach cornets.

    Dale, you beat me to it again:lol:

    MF, My Bach is probably based on the early Omega's, has a lot of Strad stuff on it. Plus It looked like it had hardly been played when I got it. Under $500 shipped and has a really good sound to it for not being a true Strad. Just can't find any definative info on it as far as the model nomenclature, probably an early '90's horn as far as when it left the factory:shock:
    As far as hardly been played, I've taken care of that. The addition of the Concert series Marcink. mouthpiece helped with the tone( a little darker, not quite what I remember of my LB Strad, but close).........Buck:play::oops:

    My SIL has the CR-300, it's decent horn as far as that goes. Trifle bit beat( belonged to a HS kid), but does the job for her.........Buck:oops:

    Thanks, Dale. After tracking down some other pics of a CR310, sure enough, that's probably what it is.

    Yeah, I've always wanted an inexpensive shepherd crook cornet, so I figured I couldn't go too wrong with this particular horn for $135. :roll:

    Sure enough. It's a CR-310 (stamped on the leadpipe). Actually not a bad horn at all. Plays very sweet and mellow. Mechanically, it's definitely a Bach quality-wise. :thumbsup:

    Now all I have to do is track down a case that fits a shepherd crook cornet. Any suggestions (other than the obvious attempt to find an actual Bach case)??
