One of a kind pocket cornet conversion Martin by Nick Decarlis

Martin “Troubadour” • horn from 1931/built 2008

In the early 30’s, “streamlining” was in, and many cornets and trumpets reflected this trend with “low profile” designs having stretched-out proportions. Martin made both cornet and trumpet versions of the Troubadour. This conversion started out with a cornet (shown), but in the end utilized a trumpet bell, which was slightly smaller diameter (although the engraving was identical). The resulting design makes for a particularly small and compact pocket cornet. The photos show the final results, following silver plating.

Length (mpc. removed): 8.5”
Bell Diameter: 4.0”
Bore: .436
