Bore .460"
Bell 4-3/4" yellow brass bell.
Pistons Nickel-plated pistons resist corrosion and are durable.
Gold epoxy lacquer Microscopic, electrically-charged particles of lacquer are attracted to and deposited evenly on the surface of the instrument carrying the opposite charge. This produces an exceptionally thin, uniform coating that can be oven-hardened for maximum durability without compromising the instrument's sound. Gold epoxy lacquer provides easy maintenance and scratch and corrosion resistance.
Gold brass leadpipe Gold brass is extremely resistant to wear and corrosion, and when used in a leadpipe, it ensures long-term precision.

Review Date: 4/1/2005 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $145.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Quality vs cost

Yamaha calls this cornet it's "standard". I wanted to start playing cornet and not spend much $$$. I found a used 2330 for $145. and love it! Very good valves, 1st and 3rd intonation adjustment, excellent tone (I use a Wick 4B). You may not want to show up at a brass band rehearsal with this cornet but, for the price, you can't beat it!

Pros: Valves, easy blowing
Cons: None that I can recall

This looks exactly like the student Yamaha cornet that I started with in 4th grade and played all through high school marching band. I remember this cornet having fantastic valves that were just as good as any Getzen. With it being a student horn, it was incredibly easy to play and hit upper register notes with. It was extremely durable as it lasted all through high school when I then donated it to my grade school. It took a beating and kept on ticking. Mine didn't have a first valve slide saddle though.

Pros: Well built, excellent intonation,valves are as tight as on any of my pro horns
Cons: Gets stuffy above high A

I bought this for my youngest daughter to play once she demonstrated she was sticking to playing. She tried a few at the music store and liked this one best. I tried it out to make sure she wasn't choosing it for the silver plate and was quite suprised by te beautiful tone and the fine intonation. The 1st and 3rd valve tuning slides were quite functional and better than I had seen on any other student horn. She is now a junior and the horn still looks great and plays like the day we brought it home. I think she will keep this one for a long time (she says she wants to play in the community band when she graduates) and all indications are that it will last as long as she wants.
