Vintage Bb Cornet - Good response and good intonation, over a wide mouthpiece range. Note: pics 2 & 3 show comparison with an Austrian-made Gautier in the key of A (shorter cornet, top). If you wish, you can also have the Austrian horn, however, it has 2 stuck valves.Made by York, in the US. Instead of being stamped the usual "BF" on the valve casing, this one has a York serial number stamped in its place. LP slides (included) tune well on our modern A440 pitch standard. Takes any standard cornet mouthpiece, vintage or current. It's pretty forgiving - plays in-tune with a variety of mouthpieces, narrow and wide backbore. I personally like the Old 3 for bright sound with substance, also tried a vintage [Beau] Ideal, and a cheap Chinese flugel mpc and altohorn mpc. Pro horn of its time. Light, quick action, very fun to play! Case is by Conn, but fits well and effectively protects the horn. Dings and finish wear, but good playing horn.
