|For sale is a fantastic Wild Thing short cornet with the triple shepherd's crooks in silver plate. It is different than most WT cornets in that it was custom made with a trumpet receiver. Because it takes a trumpet mouthpiece is an incredibly versatile instrument that can be used in a wide range of musical settings. |
I used it to play traditional jazz with a shallow lead type mouthpiece; with that setup the horn has a rich, broad sound that is perfect for that music, and range and endurance is great. With a medium sized mouthpiece the horn has an ideal round cornet sound. With a deep mouthpiece the tone is almost flugel like.
This horn has the great WT feel and Kanstul craftsmanship. It was recently serviced by Robb Stewart and is in excellent condition. Includes the second longer tuning slide.
