Some of us have a serious appreciation for cornets, and a few even prefer to play cornet over trumpet!

How about a thread for your cornet pics...no trumpets, flugels, etc.

The older and/or cooler, the better. Lots of different, interesting tubing configurations were available over the years, as well as some beautiful aesthetics. Post a little info along with the picture(s).

Of course, I'll start, but slowly...

1969 Conn 15A Director

Nice idea!

Be on the lookout for a certain Onyx, and one dented up red-head with the best singing voice ever.

Not mine, but the prettiest cornet I've come across.

"1891 C.G. Conn Wonder "Solo Model" cornet. Resoration completed in late 2009. The present owner received it in the late 1930s when he was a boy from his Grand-Father (the original owner). Though it took a while to properly restore, the final results were worth the effort. Shown here with its original mouth-pieces, mute and C-slide assembly."

1955 Buescher 400. Approximately the last year of manufacture, essentially unchanged since its introduction about 1937.

Pretty, no?

Looks like you need a Wild Thing cornet to comlplete the set...

I have a Coprion Director cornet, too, but for now, here's my 1920 80A, also documented in an overly-long thread on this very forum:

Well, the horn isn't all that special, but this is me with my first new horn, 1954 Conn Victor Cornet:

And, one more, an early '60s Conn Director Cornet in a trapper's cabin in the Yukon Territory, someplace upstream of Dawson City. That book is the Brownie transcriptions -- the only music I had with me for over two months -- I learned a lot.

I'll throw in another one, a '49 Olds Ambassador I had customized...bell bent into a shepherd's crook, and the 3rd valve slide reversed so it could be moved with the finger ring.

OK, you just made me do it, although this has been posted before (plus there have been some magnificent additions to the cornet collection since this was taken):



I don't really have to post pictures of that fully-engraved gold-plated Besson again, do I?

Here's a 1900's Boosey Compensating Cornet with accessories.
Haven't seen many of these around - off to a new home soon.

Not to hijack too hard... but are those Facets merely straight mutes that I would be terrified to bump/drop (i.e. use), or do they actually supply some unique timbre?
